Everyone knows that the most fundamental aspect of chinuch is kriah – learning how to read properly. Yet too many kids never catch on to it, which leads to huge deficiencies that lasts throughout their lives.

Tova Rottenberg, a kriah educator in Cleveland, has developed a comprehensive system for teaching kriah called Aleph Beis . Together with her brother Shmuel Barkin, the Aleph Beis Kriah program consists of books, printed materials, and a web-based software program that instructs children in a systematic approach with an unusually high success rate.

In this interview, we cover the basics of kriah instruction, why it is so important, and how their system is able to achieve such impressive results with their students.

Aleph Beis is actively in the midst of developing a cutting edge program for teaching kriah using computer-based learning, which would be the first of its kind.

To find out more and get involved in this monumental project, I urge you to reach out to Tova to help get this project to fruition.

Every child that can learn how read properly is literally like saving a life.
