Modern-day innovation meets centuries of tradition and heritage with Chai Tech’s launch of the first online training program for bar/bat mitvah. The program is the first of its kind in that it provides a total learning solution for students that provides flexibility, affordability and outstanding instruction – from any location with an Internet connection.

Chai Tech’s bar/bat mitzvah system was established by Andrew Jacobs, an experienced Rabbi who has worked with more than 500 b’nai mitzvah students over 12 years at Ramat Shalom Synagogue. He saw that there were students and families who struggled to meet the time and financial obligations that traditional study programs demanded. To provide a solution, he paired his knowledge and experience with the education and technical know-how of FYI Online Learning, a premier producer of online curriculum. As some of the most respected colleges and universities have provided online options for students, Rabbi Jacobs and FYI decided to bring those same benefits for bar/bat mitzvah students.

The result is an interactive, engaging system that applies the lessons of bar/bat mitzvah studies with learning techniques that have proven to appeal to today’s students.

Flexibility and adaptability are key components in Chai Tech’s approach. “We wanted to provide a solution that addressed the obstacles that make it difficult or impossible for students to pursue their bar/bat mitzvah,” said Rabbi Jacobs. “Chai Tech will make any synagogue-based training more effective, but it also will help connect those who are not members of a congregation with a pathway for pursuing their Jewish faith. This is about offering more effective options for traditional programs of study as well as providing powerful new access for others.”

The Chai Tech bar/bat mitzvah program will be supervised by a skilled teacher who will monitor each student’s progress and be available online for questions and support. Chai Tech will also offer bar/bat mitzvah tutors who will work with students individually either online or “in person”. In addition, Chai Tech will connect families with rabbis who will officiate at bar/bat mitzvah celebrations.
