Learning to read Hebrew should be easy, accessible, and fun.


I believe learning to read Hebrew is a circular gift.

For the student, the gift is the confidence to read G-d’s language among family and friends – whether at a Bar Mitzvah, a wedding, or a family Seder. 

For the community, the gift is hearing the student share G-d’s word in its purest form – bringing everyone closer to each other, their faith, and G-d. 

And for the teacher, the gift is, of course, helping make these beautiful moments and connections possible. And that’s why I started the Read Hebrew Prep School!


I’ve been a Rabbi for over 20 years, and I love applying my passion for teaching and expertise in Jewish spirituality toward a growing need in the community to make learning more accessible and fun.

I also have a knack for explaining things simply. When teaching students to read Hebrew, I’ve found unique methods to make this seemingly overwhelming goal quite easy. In addition, I’ve cut out the non-essential aspects of the typical Hebrew reading course work – so that my students are reading Hebrew quicker and with more confidence.


Over the years, I have shared recordings of my Hebrew reading lessons with Bar/Bat Mitzvah students, and to put it simply, the recorded lessons worked – and quickly too! Inspired by these successes, as well as the growing possibilities of online learning, I began to create a fully virtual course that has worked for students of all ages – at their own pace and in the comfort of their own home.

Ten lessons (each including two 20-minute videos and supporting worksheets)

Isaac’s Story

Isaac had always felt a deep connection to his Jewish faith, and he had happily passed this love for Judaism to his children. When his eldest daughter, Rachel, announced she was getting married, he knew that he wanted to do something special for her on the big day.

Alex and Sophia’s Story

I recently sat down with siblings Alex and Sophia to chat about their learning process. Sophia took the course before her Bat Mitzvah a few years ago, and Alex is currently wrapping up his lessons to prepare for his Bar Mitzvah this year.

Have a son who is also interested in Bar Mitzvah preparation? 

It is another passion and privilege of mine to guide young men through this meaningful time – and to transform traditional (and often lacklustre) Bar Mitzvah preparation into a memorable, impactful, and fun experience. You can learn more about my unique approach to Bar Mitzvah prep here
