The first time I had my Aliyah I was so nervous I thought I was going to faint. Working with this trainer really made a wonderful difference. So I sound like an advertisement better that than faint. Reply

blessing My second grandson is getting Bar Mitzvah in October. Thank you so much for your singing. I belong to a Reformed synagogue in Houston, Texas and kept my membership when I relocated two years ago to LA. When I attended religious school a million years go,they didn't teach Hebrew to the girls. I went to cooking or singing classes. I'm not a proficient at either. Now I go to a Conservative synagogue but find it very hard to follow but I love the music. Learning Hebrew as a grandmother isn't easy and I appreciate your singing voice so very much. Reply

Elie's Bar Mitzvah Dear Rabbi Alevsky...thank you for helping me learn the blessings before reading the Torah at Eli's Bar Mitzvah in New Haven. . Elie's parents, Caryn and Cory have honored me with an Aliyah at Elie's Bar Mitzvah in March, and now, thanks to you I will be able to participate. Your enunciation is so carefully clear and easy to learn that I am certain that I will recite the blessings on that wonderful day without a problem. My thanks to you, along with best wishes to your lovely family. Reply

A synagogue is a place of Jewish worship. In addition to housing a sanctuary for services, synagogues (most notably Chabad centers) serve as the centerpoint of Jewish life.
