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 ceremony officiating anywhere in the world.
Every Bar/Bat Mitzvah training is tailored to the Hebrew reading skill, aptitude and the spiritual needs of every student and his/her family. This includes understanding basic Jewish values as well.
Over the many years of mentoring our students and teaching Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons we have been guiding countless students on their journey to becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Many of them 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.
Emphasis on Personal Growth
While our teaching methods are effective and personalized, we do not believe in exerting unnecessary pressure on our Bar/Bat Mitzvah students just for the sake of performing certain “required” reading for the Bar Mitzvah service. While some students do chant prayers and their Torah portion, they do that according to their ability and aptitude .
Everything learned in the Bar Mitzvah preparation process is for the student’s personal growth and for leading the service in a meaningful way.
Inspiring Our Students
Our Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation is about inspiring our students by instilling in them love for Judaism and Israel. Experience shows that students excel if they are inspired. Our genuine care for our students and having pride in their progress, as well as patience, compassion, and enthusiasm, always make 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 training.
It is the love and pride in Judaism that flourish Long after the memory of the readings/chanting has faded away.
In order to create a positive Bar /Bat Mitzvah training
Experience we use proven learning principles:
• Learning In Small Increments:
Assigning clear and reasonable goals for every stage
Of the learning process and for each Bar Mitzvah
For Bar/Bat Mitzvah Plan which includes Hebrew reading/chanting:
• 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
