Learning One-on-One

Be Mitzvah where you are with Mentorship Your Way!

Mentorship Your Way is a flexible program that meets families where they are, wherever they are.

Our Mentorship Your Way program offers a personalized Be Mitzvah preparation path, building a strong one-on-one relationship between families and a mentor. It’s an ideal option for various situations, such as:

  • Older teen students of all ages
  • Students who prefer individual instruction
  • Students residing outside of the Boulder/Denver metro area
  • Students with a shorter timeframe for learning
  • Students with specific learning needs that would thrive with customized instruction

Students design their own custom siddur (prayer book) after taking a deep dive into the prayers and themes within a Shabbat service. Sharing Torah (Jewish wisdom stories) is a key part of each students’ journey, whether it is inspired by biblical texts or lessons from personal growth. We cherish and value every student’s teachings equally. Students also select a focus track, whether it’s diving into exploring a text from the Torah, a 13 Challenges Jewish wisdom project, exploring the 4 Kabbalistic Worlds, or doing a research project.

Those interested in learning to chant from the Torah in Hebrew can work with a tutor at an additional cost, outside of class time. Judaism Your Way will provide a list of tutors for those seeking this skill.
