Neshamah’s unique B’nai Mitzvah Program offers the highest level of ritual training paired with the personal touch of teachers who know (and enjoy!) each student individually. Classes focus on Torah portions, Prayer services and the spiritual meaning behind both of those subjects.
In class, students study with a teacher in small group and then join the larger group to sing together and practice chanting in front of others. Customized, online videos and computer-based learning tools are available for all enrolled students to access at home.
All classes are team taught by Rabbi Rader and the Neshamah Faculty. Most classes take place at Temple Beth Shalom in Boca Raton.
