Torah and TikTok: Not your dad’s bar mitzvah (Jewish News)

Jewish News: Torah and TikTok: Not your dad’s bar mitzvah. “While their parents may have relied on tape recorders and CDs for their own b’nei mitzvah preparations, students today learning to chant Torah can turn to YouTube. ‘There are lots of cantors who have produced high-quality recordings on YouTube,’ said Ben Rotenberg, education director at Germantown Jewish Centre in Pennsylvania. ‘It’s easy to find a voice that you can match and feel comfortable with.’ The video sharing website is just one of many technologies being incorporated into b’nei mitzvah preparations.”
