I provide instruction on how to pleasantly and correctly read the Torah portion according to the Ashkenazi tradition
I develop original ideas with the student for their Bar Mitzvah speech and then help them with their confidence and charisma for public speaking
About Rabbi Ariel:
R Ariel Shalem is an experienced educator and Bar Mitzvah instructor who loves working with people and has a rapport for striking meaningful and pleasant relationships with his students.
He has been leading services and teaching Torah since his own Bar mitzvah which he handled confidently in front of a thousand people. Today he is a passionate outdoor educator and prepares young people for their Bar Mitzvahs in person and online. He has a beautiful family and lives in Tal Menashe, Israel.
Yisroel really has enjoyed learning/reviewing with you and each time comes away feeling like he is getting better with your help.
Rav Ariel is really good at understanding where you are coming from, and at listening.
He makes learning fun and let's you have an opinion without judgment.
He teaches you the meaning of being Bar Mitzvah and that it's not just reading from the Torah.
I highly recommend Rav Ariel to anyone who is looking for someone to teach them the meaning behind becoming a Bar Mitzvah and not just the reading of the Parsha
