Testimonials

“Abby is an experienced Jewish educator who creates experiential, multiple-intelligence, text-based learning sessions for our seventh grader. I’m always impressed by the attention to detail and the number of sources and modalities used. Our seventh grader learns so much in each session that he gives his learning a 10 out of 10 each time.”

“I enjoy learning with Abby because she really makes me want to learn. I feel like I get to say my opinion and not just say what the text says. I really feel that I’m part of the learning experience.”
Y., fifth grader, NYC

“I’ve been a Jewish communal professional for several years. Recently, I felt the need to ground my work and deepen my knowledge of Torah, Jewish ritual, and Jewish history.  Working with Abby has been a very positive experience. She is highly knowledgeable, her lessons are comprehensive, and she thoroughly prepares material that both covers the essentials of Judaism’s rich intellectual tradition, and also connects to my specific areas of interests. I highly recommend her as a Jewish studies tutor for adults.”

“Abby worked with our family to introduce the study of Torah and practice of holidays into our lives, and to prepare our kids for their bat and bar mitzvah. Our daughter was turning 15 and our son was turning 13 and Abby created a curriculum that gave them grounding in Torah and prayer and gave us all a solid and deep understanding of Jewish holidays. Abby connected quickly and easily with our children and skillfully adapted her teaching to their age, ability, and learning style. She worked one-on-one with our kids and with all of us in family Torah and holiday sessions. With the kids, Abby created a powerful and meaningful service atop Masada. The kids were challenged intellectually and encouraged to create a service that reflected their own ideas and unique Jewish and interfaith identities. Abby’s lessons are well-prepared and insightful. She also has a lively and warm personality and grew very dear to us over the year we worked with her. We highly recommend her.”
