What Our Students say

I just wanted to let you know how much Jack and I are enjoying the Bar Mitzvah program. Both of us are learning many new things. I am really impressed with the work, the energy and the passion you put into each session. It amazes me how you are able to keep the interest going for a bunch of 12-13 year old boys, for an hour at the end of a very long day. My wife sits next to us during the sessions and she shares my amazement.

“Both of ours boys now have participated in the program and learned immensely about the right ideals and values when preparing for becoming Bar Mitzvah. The Kahoot quizzes were awesome!”

The B. Family

What an amazing, memorable and meaningful experience. I never had put on tefillin until the year I said Kaddish for my father when I was 45 years old. My son has now done it from his Bar Mitzvah. A huge thank you to Rabbi Sytner for creating this program. I really can’t put into words how fabulous an experience this has been and how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to do this with my son. I’m quite certain this never would have happened without you Rabbi. In a year filled with challenges you gave us this incredible gift that we will never forget.

Hi Eve. Just letting you know how incredibly meaningful today’s meeting was to both Libby and Me!! Aside from all we learned today and the uninterrupted quality time we had together (this NEVER happens), after all was baked, we made a cute challah care package to fedex the friend I mentioned who is in the hospital with meningitis. Spreading all the mitzvot. Thank you!!

I don’t know who loved learning with Eve more, me or my daughter! She spoke to us on each of our levels of understanding. She spoke to our hearts.”

“The Bar Mitzvah Program made the actual bar mitzvah day all the more special. The program allowed me to see how my son thinks and leads in our community.”

“The program was something I looked forward to each week. Rabbi Tzvi made a connection with each person in the room and made learning fun and interactive. It was fun to do it with my dad. ”

Imagine being given the tools to get a head start on life. Imagine feeling like you have the power and knowledge to handle challenging situations with peers, siblings, even your parents.  Imagine interacting online with other teens your age going through the exact same life experiences as you are.
