B'nai Mitzvah Journey


Talma Boyle 

A Little Bit About Talma:

I started my career as a teacher in the Israeli Army for new immigrants. I’m passionate about the Hebrew language and therefore decided to continue teaching when I relocated to the US. I work for an Israeli high tech company full time, and for the past 30 years, have tutored students as well. I love my students because they are my inspiration. 


Don Croll

Why Don Tutors:

It brings me a lot of pleasure to help students achieve something they thought they could never do: chant in Hebrew from the Torah. I love being able to make something they thought would be tedious and boring fun. I tell a lot of jokes!


Roz Katz

Why Roz Tutors:

The opportunity to study prayers and Torah with students as they prepare for the Bar and Bat Mitzvah services is a tremendous privilege. To witness their growth from first hesitant phrases to chanting verses from the Torah scroll with confidence is like receiving a precious jewel each and every time.


Hallie Weiner

 A Little Bit About Hallie:

I wear many hats at Temple Emanu-El but my favorite by far, is B'nai Mitzvah Tutor. I am passionate about teaching and communicating that enthusiasm to my students. I am thrilled to be one of the tutors at Temple.
