I Inspired Birth Right Israel
Teaching your child to prepare for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a gift I am given over and over again. While there are so many pieces of the journey of my Jewish life that go into what I do, it is simply the love of being Jewish that makes what I do fun!
I began my career being educated in the Yeshiva, and I have served many synagogues as Cantor, Torah reader, and B’Nai Mitzvah teacher throughout the years.
Several years ago, I formed a group of Jewish teens who I took to Israel to further their love for their Jewish roots. This was the inspiration for "Birth Right Israel"
As your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah coach and the one who will share the bimah with your child and your family, it is my ultimate goal to leave each family feeling more deeply connected with their Jewish roots than when they began. This can only happen through a positive, cohesive experience that we all share together, culminating in a feeling of warmth and connection on your child’s special day.
I bring with me a wealth of knowledge to the process of teaching children, but the greatest reward is not in hearing how much Hebrew your child has learned, but how much fun and joy they have had on their journey to becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
