Online Bar/Bat Mitzvah Lessons

At Jewtor, we’ve been teaching kids of all Jewish backgrounds in online Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons since 2011. All of our online Bar and Bat Mitzvah lessons are, well, online, because that makes it possible to offer times that work for you and your child. It makes it possible to give your son or daughter individual attention in 1-on-1 lessons. And our professional tutors – rabbis, cantors, and Jewish educators – are great!

How to choose a Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor

At Jewtor, we’ve been tutoring Bar and Bat Mitzvah kids since 2011. (Looking for adult bar or bat mitzvah instruction? We teach adults, too.)

Our meticulously-selected tutors are Jewish professionals – rabbis, cantors, Jewish educators – who can help your child learn for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah in a fun, engaging program that focuses on your child. There’s no classroom full of other kids to slow things down.

When you’re looking for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor, you want a teacher who knows their Jewish stuff. But that’s just the beginning. You want someone who understands kids, a tutor who knows how to teach and reach kids from all backgrounds and levels. And you want a tutor who has years of experience, so they’re not learning on the job (beyond, of course, what the Talmud says about teachers learning from their students).

At Jewtor, this is who we are, and this is what we do.

Online Bar/Bat Mitzvah learning

We do all of our Bar/Bat Mitzvah instruction online. It’s a great way to help fit lessons into your child’s busy schedule, and it sure helps parents, too – no carpools necessary! We’re experienced with kids and families of all Jewish backgrounds and affiliations, so it’s totally okay if you’re not members of a synagogue or temple, and it’s also fine if you are (Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Renewal, Reconstructionist – you name it). We’ve worked with kids with distinct learning needs. And we’ve worked with kids around the world whose parents are on assignment in places where there aren’t any local Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutors to be found.

We teach the skills your child needs to learn, and we also teach Jewish values to last a lifetime. We focus 100% on your child and what he or she needs.

We’re proud of our 5.0 Google Reviews rating from families like yours.

Jewtor – the natural choice for your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor.

Why online Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons work

Parents and kids today are busy. We’re all super-programmed, and Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons that can fit today’s busy schedules are a blessing. At Jewtor, this is what we do – we offer individual, one-on-one online lessons with Bar/Bat Mitzvah students at times that work for you. All of our lessons are live – there’s nothing canned about them – and 100% devoted to your child.

Jewtor – top-notch, top-rated Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutors since 2011

We’ve been tutoring kids and adults for online Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons (and other subjects) since 2011. Our tutors are top-notch and top-rated (check out our 5.0 rating on Google Reviews!). We’re rabbis and cantors and Jewish educators who know our stuff and know how to work with kids one-on-one, patiently, gently, and purposefully, to help them learn for their big day without pressure. And beyond, because we don’t just teach the mechanics. We teach Jewish values, too!

The rabbi or cantor for your child’s bar/bat mitzvah

If you’re members of a synagogue or temple, we work with your rabbi or cantor to tailor your child’s learning to what he or she will need to know. If you’re having a private Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony at home or at a destination, our tutors can officiate at the service, and we can also connect you with rabbis in the US, Canada, and Israel for the ceremony.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah learning at Jewtor

At Jewtor, we start wherever each child is. (Many of our Bar/Bat Mitzvah families don’t belong to a synagogue or temple, and often there isn’t one nearby.) For some kids, that means starting at aleph – the first letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet. For other kids, who may have had some Hebrew school or Jewish day school, we review what they might have forgotten and then get them started on moving quickly forward in their Jewish learning.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah education at Jewtor: Hebrew, Torah, Haftarah, prayers – and values

We teach kids how to read Hebrew, how to chant Torah and Haftarah, and we teach them how to chant the prayers, all based on what they need to learn for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah. (If the Bar/Bat Mitzvah will be at a synagogue or temple, we work with your rabbi or cantor to help your child learn exactly what he/she will be called upon to do at the service.) But we don’t stop with the mechanics. At Jewtor, we also teach Jewish values and concepts that every Jewish kid should know. We teach Jewish holidays as they come up during the year.

Why do we do all this? Because a Bar or Bat Mitzvah isn’t a one-day event. It’s a major milestone in your child’s Jewish learning, and your child deserves to know how wonderful and deep Jewish tradition is.

Online Bar/Bat Mitzvah learning: guided 1-on-1 learning with a tutor

We use modern books and a variety of contemporary media in our online Bar and Bat Mitzvah lessons. And all of our lessons are personal, meaning one-on-one. There’s no time wasted in classroom management, and your child will blossom at his or her own pace instead of someone else’s. And because Jewtor Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons are one-on-one, each lesson is focused only on your child, without distractions.

How long does it take to learn for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah?

Most kids start learning with us about a year before their Bar or Bat Mitzvah date. (Want to calculate your Hebrew birthday?) Some start earlier, and that’s good, because then there’s time for deeper learning of Jewish texts and values, and to become proficient in Hebrew.

We work with parents and kids to focus on what needs to be learned in the time available. Sometimes families start with another tutor that doesn’t work out. Sometimes life happens and there isn’t a year before the big day. No worries – we can work with you to make your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah a success by doubling up on weekly lessons and focusing on the basics. Don’t despair, and don’t delay; just contact us. Jewtor is here to help your child learn and to help make their Bar or Bat Mitzvah a wonderful experience.
