B'nai Mitzvah Coordinator, Melamedet (teacher) Arava Talve

Sharing my love of Torah with young minds has been a great joy in my life.  I have been involved in Jewish education for many years and becoming the B'nai Mitzvah Coordinator at Temple Sinai has been a highlight in my own Jewish journey.

During the B'nai Mitzvah year, students participate in the Kita Zayin (7th Grade class) in addition to their private tutorials.  In both settings, the students engage in Torah study, learn the Shabbat morning service, acquire the necessary skills to chant both Torah and Haftarah, reflect on their own personal interpretations of Jewish concepts and liturgy and work together on a class Mitzvah project.  It is an exciting year of growth and achievement.

I am thrilled to be your child's guide as they study to become B'nai Mitzvah at Temple Sinai.
