Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why OnlineJewishLearning.com?

We offer Hebrew School and Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation courses that have been proven to get results. The benefits of using innovative teaching with interaction will not only help your child learn but will enable them to enjoy the process. Our teachers are enthusiastic and love teaching. Most importantly our teaching is convenient and can take place anytime anywhere.

2. Why not use a traditional Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor?

OnlineJewishLearning.com eliminates the time driving to and from appointments and scheduling your day around your child’s lessons. The length and format of our lessons are specially designed to keep your child motivated, making the best out of both their time and attention.

3. How does this affect my synagogue affiliation?

We support your synagogue affiliation and will prepare your child according to your synagogue’s service, rituals, and requirements.

4. What if I don’t belong to a synagogue?

We will prepare your child to fulfill the requirements of a Bar/Bat Mitzvah and help connect you with a synagogue or a rabbi in your area.

5. How long is the course?

It depends on your child’s needs. The Hebrew program and the Bar/Bat Mitzvah program are each 32 weeks long. If your child needs to learn Hebrew reading, he/she will complete the Hebrew program before beginning the 32 week Bar/Bat Mitzvah program.

6. How often do you teach my child?

We schedule regular bi-weekly lessons with your child to ensure a firm grasp of the material. Each session is 30 minutes long to optimize concentration and to guarantee adequate practice time. Your child will also be given assignments to practice and complete between sessions. This will cement the materials learned during each session and enable us to proceed.

7. How will I know how my child is progressing?

We will send you bi-monthly reports to keep you updated on your child’s progress. If you have any questions or concerns you can contact us anytime for more information on your child’s progress.

8. How much does the course cost?

Costs vary based on the number of lessons and the different programs incorporated into any individual student’s course. When programs are combined (such as Hebrew Reading with Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation) the total cost is discounted. All learning materials are included, and payment plans are available. Please contact us for more information.

9. What age should my child start preparation?

We encourage you to begin this process as early as possible. Ideally, your child should begin preparing at 11 years old. However if your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is less than a year away, please contact us to speak about an accelerated program and we will do our best to accommodate your child.
