What People are Saying

Torah studies with Michael Rubin were the perfect combination of disciplined study and questioning. By the time my special day had come,
I felt well prepared and confident not just in the recitation of my parsha but also in my personal development as a Jewish woman. The actual day of my bat mitzvah was a culmination of the years of study and a connection I felt would only deepen with my congregation at Beth David.

~ Elia

I imagine that this experience will have strengthened the foundation of Judaism in Elia. We know as her parents that the relationship she has developed as a student of this program will feed her sense of Judaic responsibility as a congregant for years to come.

 ~ Michael

Even though classes were at the end of a long Monday of school, our daughter was never reluctant to go. Not in the worst winter blizzard, nor the last 3 weeks of classes that followed her Bat Mitzvah. She enjoyed connecting with her peers and teachers and was always very relaxed at the end of each session. I think gourmet kosher food dinners probably were a welcomed change as well.
