Bio

Hi, My name Is Bruce F. I have taught Bar Mitvah lessons for Hebrew School Students that were in my classes, and also for Yeshiva Students (those that went to a private Hebrew School that split their time between Hebrew and Enlish classes). I was taught by Rabbi Solomon I Berl who held the position of Dean of Young Israel Rabbi's, was the longest serving Young Israel Rabbi, and was an Instructor at The Riets Affiliates Belz school of Jewish Music.

Hi, My name Is Bruce F. I have taught Bar Mitvah lessons for Hebrew School Students that were in my classes, and also for Yeshiva Students (those that went to a private Hebrew School that split their time between Hebrew and Enlish classes). I was taught by Rabbi Solomon I Berl who held the position of Dean of Young Israel Rabbi's, was the longest serving Young Israel Rabbi, and was an Instructor at The Riets Affiliates Belz school of Jewish Music.

Our lessons would cover the Torah and Haftorah portions for your Bar Mitzvah. Cantellation notes for both Torah and Haftorah, giving you the ability to prepare for post bar Mitzvah lessons on your own. I would like to also include the following which I feel would add to the experience, while giving you general knowledge about your religion, the jewish people, laws, customs and the State of Israel. Topics would include History of the Cantillation Notes, and why they were given, Laws of being called up to the Torah, Putting on Teffilin, and what is written in the Tiffilin, What is Zionism, and what does it mean to be a Zionist, The balfore Declaration, The White paper, Un Vote To Partition, The Yom Kippur war, The Six day war, and spreading good will. My Teaching approach is meeting with students once or twice a week. I will demonstrate the cantorial notes for the student, then assk the student to repeat the note. I will then apply that note to their specific Torah portion which indicates that note on specific words or group of words. I will then make a recording of those notes in addition to a complete recording of their weekly portion, so that they could practice on their own, and be prepared for their next lesson. I have seen great success with this method over the years.

There is no better feeling than to pass on specific Talent and knowledge to the next generation, listening to the end result knowing that there is another person who is now proficient in The Cantillation, with the hope that they will one day continue to pass the knowledge and Talent to others.
