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 Bar Mitzvah lessons in 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 Bar Mitzvah Lessons Philosophy:
While our teaching methods are fun, effective and
Personalized, we do not believe in exerting unnecessary
Pressure on our Bar/Bat Mitzvah students during Bar Mitzvah
Lessons 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.
Inspiring Our Students
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.
Motivating Our Students
As mentors we motivate our students with a true
Understanding of the significance of the Bar/Bat
Mitzvah preparation. Consequently, the Bar Mitzvah lessons,
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.
