Bar / Bat Mitzvah:
One year tutorial Program: Recognizing that 70% to 80% of the Jewish population does not affiliate with temples , schuls or synagogues, Cantor Russ developed a one year tutorial bar/bat mitzvah program. His undergraduate studies where in psychology and theatre. His graduate studies were at the Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles and Jerusalem. No prior Hebrew school or religious school required for the program.
One on one tutoring: Cantor Michael Russ has tutored Bar/Bat Mitzvah students in the Los Angeles area since 1987. His father was a Cantor and when students needed extra help he called upon Michael to help. L'Chayim Services offers individual lessons each week with a flexible schedule to accommodate busy students and parents. Cantor Rus teaches in his office and/or online.
Religious Ceremony: The program culminates with the student helping to lead the Shabbat (Sabbath) service. The service can be conducted almost anywhere: Hotels, Catering Halls, Country clubs, Your Home, Restaurants, Outdoors, etc. “Have Torah Will Travel” is our motto.
Portable Sanctuary: Torahs, Ark for Torahs, “Ner Tamid”, Prayer books and Cantor. One fee covers everything! For more information call or email L'Chayim Services.
