About Morris

Every student is different. I adjust my teaching techniques based on how my students react. Patience is the key factor in building the relationship I strive for with my students. I lead by example and have my students try to emulate me for the correct pronunciation and tunes for reading the Torah.

To solidify learning in between lessons, I make recordings for the students to study with and help with their Bar Mitzvah preparation. I then accompany my students to the Torah when their big day comes.

My first student was a family friend that asked me if I knew anyone to start studying with their 10 year old son. I was 16 at the time and a little shy about being the teacher. Right away I was fascinated by the art of teaching and the amazing the feeling of accomplishment that came at the conclusion of a lesson when I saw that the student has moved forward in his progress. I have since been prepared 26 boys for their Bar Mitzvahs sparking wonderful relationships along the way.

I was taught to read the Torah when I was ten by my father. After my Bar Mitzvah, I continued to read a few times a month in the synagogue. When I was 18, I was hired to lead my community in the Torah reading. I am currently the Ba’al Koreh at Young Sephardic Community Center.

My students have come from many different religious backgrounds, some coming from orthodox day schools and others from local public schools. In addition, some of my more gratifying achievements are from the students I have worked with that had various learning disabilities.
