Tutoring, Education & Officiation

I'm a private Rabbi for Bar Mitzvahs & Bat Mitzvahs in NYC and the Tri State area. All tutoring lessons and even ceremonies are available in online virtual meetings via Zoom or your preferred video conferencing platform.  

It's all about learning and growing!


A Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah and the education around it might be your first step into Judaism. Or, it may be the day you’ve dreamed about since they were born – the day they stand at the Torah and become a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah.  

I have stood at the side of hundreds of Bar & Bat Mitzvah students, celebrating at 13 or even as adults, as they take their place among the Jewish people.


I offer private Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah packages that include weekly lessons, family meetings, rehearsal, a service at your venue with Torah scroll and ark. 


I also work with several of NYC's finest musicians who can add beauty and spirit to your service. 

All of my Bar and Bat Mitzvah packages are customized to your needs, in an effort to create a memorable, meanigful and enjoyable Jewish moment.

Receiving an Aliyah to the Torah is an honor: the honor to say a  special blessing before the Torah is chanted and after the Torah is chanted. 


The Bar or Bat Mitzvah receives this honor on the first day they stand to read from the Torah. Family and friends are also frequently honored with an Aliyah as well.
