Inspiring our Bar/Bat Mitzvah students to embrace
Jewish life and to be proud of their heritage.

Who We Are:

We are Rabbi David and Cantor Lee, congregational clergy,
Highly experienced and dedicated Bar/Bat Mitzvah mentors, offering Bar Mitzvah lessons and ceremonies, officiating
Anywhere in the world.

Our Bar/Bat Mitzvah training is tailored to the Hebrew skills, aptitude and spiritual needs of our students and their families.
This includes Hebrew reading and chanting as well as understanding basic Jewish values.

Over the many years of mentoring and teaching, we have been guiding countless students on their journey to becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Many are special needs students who respond best to various teaching modalities and techniques.

Our Bar Mitzvah Lessons are fun, engaging and highly
Effective. The training methodology is carefully tailored to the student’s learning needs.

Our Philosophy:

While our teaching methods are fun, effective and
Personalized, we do not believe in exerting unnecessary
Pressure on our Bar/Bat Mitzvah students just for the sake of
Performing a “required” reading for the Bar Mitzvah service.
Since every student is different, there are no standard
"expectations". Everything learned in the preparation
Process is for the student’s personal growth and not only for
Leading services.

In addition to teaching Prayers, Torah reading and /or
Chanting, our Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation process is about
Inspiring our students by instilling in
Them a love for Judaism and Israel. Experience shows
That students excel if they are inspired. Genuinely caring
For our students and having pride in their progress, as well as
Patience, compassion, and enthusiasm, always makes our Bar
Mitzvah lessons exciting and special.

As mentors we motivate our students with a true
Understanding of the significance of the Bar/Bat
Mitzvah preparation. Consequently, learning the prayers
And/or the Torah portion becomes a welcomed
Assignment rather than a boring chore. It is the love and
Pride in Judaism that flourishes long after the memory of
The lessons fades away.

Instilling Jewish Values

An important part of the preparation process is the true understanding of basic Jewish values.
During the course of our mentoring, we encourage the student to explore the meaning of becoming mature and responsible Jewish adults. As a result, the student truly understands Jewish ethics such as Chesed and Tzrdakah (performing act of kindness and charity) , “Tikun Olam” ( improving our environment and our world) “Baal Tashchit” (our responsibilities as custodians of the world ) – to name a few.

Our Methodology

In order to create a positive Bar /Bat Mitzvah training
Experience we use three proven principles:

• Learning In Small Increments:
Assigning clear and reasonable goals for every stage
Of the learning process and for each Bar Mitzvah

• Using Phonetics to Introduce the Hebrew Letters, vowels and phrases:
The Hebrew letters and the sound symbols (Vowels)
Are introduced by comparing them to the familiar
Pronunciation of their English counterparts.

• Gradual Integration of the Learned Text with the Chanted Music:
As the student begins to master basic Hebrew reading,
Prayer and Torah melodies are gradually and carefully
Introduced and integrated into the lessons
