1. How long before the Bar Mitzvah do we start practicing?
Answer: Depending on how little or how much the student intends to chant on the day of his event, the optimal preparation time can vary from six months to one and a half years. The sooner the lessons start the less pressure is on the Bar Mitzvah boy. Please keep in mind, though, that there are all types of options to fit the your child’s needs.
2. If www.BarMitzvah LessonsOnline.com trains my son, then which synagogue do I actually have the Bar Mitzvah in?

3. What if my son can’t read Hebrew?
Answer: No problem! Our teachers have trained many boys how to read Hebrew. With simple and fun teaching methods our teachers will enable your child to proudly get up in front of the synagogue and chant his portion with confidence. If there is not enough time available for your child to learn how to read Hebrew, we can prepare him quickly on how to be called up to the Torah for an Aliyah and read the Torah Blessings with transliteration.
