Cantor Barbra officiates all services at multiple venues including homes, catering halls, and restaurants.

Some families prefer small, informal group lessons in the intimate setting of one’s home. Cantor Barbra likes to teach a maximum of four children that have the same level of Hebrew ability. She will meet with the interested families for a free consult to decide together on the calendar schedule as well as the curriculum for each year.

The lessons include: learning to read Hebrew, prayers, Torah studies, Jewish holidays, lifecycles, and history. The sessions are interspersed with crafts, edible projects, and Torah based plays. Some of the classes may celebrate the holidays by participating in an ice cream seder for Tu B'shevat or a chocolate seder for Passover.

Client Testiomonials

Words are not enough to thank you. Your spiritual presence and guidance gave so much meaning to Maya’s bat mitzvah (and Ariana’s 3 years ago too!). We appreciate your personal and intimate approach to meeting this significant milestone for both of our children and for us as a family. We are grateful to you and will follow you if you choose to perform high holiday services in the future! You give meaning to the word “congregation”. You are able to bring a group of strangers together in a room and create a sense of warmth and community with your voice and guidance. Thank you and we will miss you and look forward to seeing you soon!

We want to thank you for officiating such a beautiful Bar Mitzvah ceremony for our son Mychal. We, as well as our friends and family were so impressed with how prepared Mychal was for his ceremony- thanks to your guidance. He did such a great job and we are so proud of him!

Being a working mom, I really appreciate the in-home tutoring you provide. You are flexible with the schedule when necessary which makes things easy for us. You are always available to answer questions- whether by text, email, phone or in person- you are always very accessible and responsive. We are happy to be working with you again for our son Ben and are looking forward to his special day.

Val and Joe Kersting, Tappan, NY

Thank you so much for all your work with Ethan. We are so thrilled to have found you. The weekly lessons with a wonderful tutor, on our schedule, at his speed were perfect for our son. The service was unique and warm, and it brought out the very best in our child and the beauty of our shared Jewish traditions. All of our family and friends raved about him... and about you! Thank you for making this special experience just right for our family.
