enable everyone to join in and sing along.
As you listen, you’ll understand why the
enthusiastic style and choice of material
appeals to children and adults of all ages.
These songs “Bring out the kid in all of

 Joining Susan in this performance is our own Miss Patti Torcellini Hartman, who has been enhancing our

an old friend of Ms. Shane-Linder’s, and both ladies are thrilled to be able to perform together again.

B’nai Mitzvah Mavens
Temple Israel is proud to present the very latest in Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutoring: B’NAI MITZVAH MAVENS! This
B’nai Mitzvah tutoring program is tailored to meet individual needs and learning styles of our Bar/Bat Mitzvah
Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation has traditionally consisted of 12 months of semi-private and private tutoring sessions
that help students hone the advanced skills of Haftarah and Torah trope as well as preparing the B’nai Mitzvah
candidate with the necessary skills to lead services with poise and confidence.
In order to enhance the Bar/Bat Mitzvah process, Temple Israel now provides four months of small group tutoring,
with master teachers, Barbara Feld and Barbara Ezring. Our students then move on to working with Cantor Elias
Roochvarg to tackle the advanced skills of chanting trope. In addition, our students prepare for their D’var Torah
with Rabbi Ezring or Rabbi Cantor several months before their special day. By working together in small groups,
students have the benefit of peer-learning. Students help other students, and as a group they progress through the
entire Shabbat service. With so many wonderful teachers who have different teaching styles, the year leading up
to Bar or Bat Mitzvah is one of excitement, and learning opportunities at every turn!
B’nai Mitzvah Mavens, which was initiated in the Fall of 2007, has been a very successful program. At Temple
Israel we understand that each child deserves to feel positive, confident and excited about their B’nai Mitzvah.
The success of our new program is that each student feels like a Maven! For more information, please contact the
Cantor’s Office at 704-362-2796.
