What people are saying about Karaoke Tefillah:
“Rabbi Josh’s karaoke tefillah recordings have transformed our remote learning. My students love singing along to the videos at home when we broadcast them over Zoom and I’ve even seen more than a few parents sneak into the frame to join their middle school students for tefillah. Rabbi Josh is engaging on screen, his pronunciation is clear, and having the words at the bottom means there are no excuse for our kids not to be fully engaged and paying attention – and they are!
Rabbi Josh has been incredibly responsive and helpful when we were starting to organize our services. He’s given us suggestions and helped us think through some of the best methods to use. We’ve also discussed creating some recordings that will be specific for our school and some of our own tunes. It feels like I have another teacher in the room when we’re running tefillot.
My students particularly love the songs mixed in. I can often see them doing the hand motions along with “Mah Rabu” and “V’ahavta.” My students (and their families) didn’t realize how much they missed singing together. If we can’t all be in the same room for tefillah, this is the absolute best alternative.
