“Rabbi Shargel made our son's Bar Mitzvah journey a joy. Her knowledge of music is matched only by her knowledge of Judaism. Her calm guidance and patience made the experience meaningful and stress-free. We can't recommend her highly enough to be your child's teacher!"
Marc D., parent
"We were delighted that you prepared our son for his bar mitzvah. Throughout the process, you were incredibly supportive and accommodating. Your warm personality made everything easier, considering all of the sessions were done online, and your musical talents were such an asset. Your guidance throughout the service was incredibly helpful, valued and appreciated. Thank you!"
Beth & Carl, parents
"I was so well prepared for my Bat Mitzvah and could not have felt more confident about it. I appreciate your help so much. I am very proud of myself. Thank you!"

"Rabbi Shargel has been an amazing teacher to two of my children. She tailored her teaching to meet their very different learning styles. They were confident and greatly exceeded their own expectations of themselves! Rabbi Shargel also helped me begin a journey as a Torah reader in my own right."
