The Singing Torah
The Hebrew Bible is Our Mission The Hebrew Bible is the fundamental authoritative work in Judaism. The Jewish tradition teaches that the Hebrew Bible lays the foundation for all Jewish religious interpretation. The Singing Torah’s mission is to connect Jewish young adults to their Judaism and promote a lifelong engagement with their Jewish communities, through teaching them to chant the Hebrew Bible, using modern technology to bring the Hebrew Bible to life.
Your Cantor’s Voice Can Teach Hebrew Bible
The Singing Torah is an integrated bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah learning system. With The Singing Torah, Jewish cantors and bar mitzvah tutors more effectively and efficiently teach the next generation of Jewish young adults. The Singing Torah provides modern tools to the Jewish community to assist b’nai mitzvah children in achieving their potential as responsible adults. We provide online resources to aid rabbis, synagogue cantors, and bar mitzvah tutors in preparing their students for their bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah. Students with ADHD or dyslexia learn more effectively by seeing the Hebrew Bible verses while hearing the familiar voice of the child’s synagogue’s cantor. The Singing Torah creates tools for bar mitzvah tutors and b’nai mitzvah students to interact during the bar mitzvah preparation process without limitations of time and/or space. The Singing Torah creates curricula and tools for bar mitzvah tutors and students to facilitate learning the literal meaning of each word of the Hebrew Bible: 1. in the context of its meaning as would be understood by a Jewish person who lived during the Hebrew Biblical period and 2. as interpreted by Rabbi Akiva Ben Joseph who learns the meaning of a word of the Hebrew Bible in one context from its usage in another context within the Hebrew Bible.
The Singing Torah creates software that records a Jewish cantor chanting the Hebrew Bible whether a Torah portion or a Haftorah portion, aligns the synagogue cantor’s voice recording with the Hebrew Bible text, providing a multimodal interactive playback. The software handles both Ashkenazic and Sephardic pronunciation.
The Singing Torah creates web-mediated time-shifted two-way communication between b’nai mitzvah students and their tutors, allowing students and tutors to interact on their own schedules and at their own locations of choice.
The Singing Torah creates web-based tools to aid synagogue cantors in managing their bar mitzvah tutors, and tutors in keeping track of their students’ progress.
