Your Yom Kippur Sermon

I just wanted to tell you how much your sermons have meant to me. I was trying to explain it to you after the family services concluded but I lost it. What I think makes them so powerful is the way you combine traditional Jewish prayer with an insightful and soulful personal introspection that helps enable a connection to Hashem and encourages a powerful process of renewal and self-improvement. It is really an unusual combination of skills you bring to these services and I am just so appreciative of the opportunity to participate in them. Thank you.

Learn At Your Level
Boost your Success

Dorice teaches students from all different religious backgrounds and at all different levels of knowledge. If you’re a beginner, intermediate, seasoned or advanced, Dorice will tailor your lessons to your needs. 

Adult Learning

Why does Dorice love teaching adults? Because no one is telling them they have to study! It is not an expectation. It is a choice. And as such, she feels it is her privilege to share with them all that I know!

Youth Learning

Who does not like to be around young adults and their beautifully developing minds?! Teaching teens for almost 20 years, Dorice can say that every teen is different, each coming with different ideas and backgrounds! Teaching them brings a smile to her face!

"Dorice is so knowledgeable about Hebrew and the subjects she teaches. She finds interesting threads that tie everything together and make the learning feel enriching and complete (though there is always more to learn!). As a non Jewish person, I found Dorice's approach friendly, informative, approachable and I always leave her lessons feeling like I have learned more than a few new letters or words, but a cultural and historical context, and motivation to continue my studies."
