The ULTIMATE Bar/Bat Mitzvah Learning Experience
We had Stephanie, founder of Mitzvah Shirah, prepare our sons for their Bar Mitzvahs & I HIGHLY recommend! Unaffiliated with a synagogue? Stephanie will guide your child through a meaningful/spiritual experience. She shares her passion for Torah and Jewish music through highly personalized education and a service customized to your child’s personality & creativity. She takes care of every detail, and has guided countless students to their Bar/Bat Mitzvah day with confidence and a true sense of connection to their Jewish heritage. Want to take your child to chant their Torah portion in Israel? She is partnered with a rabbi in Jerusalem! She is also an excellent tutor to enhance your child’s synagogue learning experience.
