TESTIMONIALS:

"Yonatan has an unwavering dedication to the success of his students. He goes above and beyond to ensure that my Hebrew learning experience is wonderful, especially in developing an appreciation for the language and culture. Yonatan has also spent quality time exploring Queer Jewish identity with me in the beginning of our sessions. I'm truly impressed with how much I progressed in the past few weeks! He is exceptional in every aspect, embodying the qualities that make an inspiring and effective educator".

“Yonatan is everything I want in a rabbi: a human being who is not afraid of being a human being. A friend and a teacher. A person who lives his heart and leads with his heart and is willing and able to hold space with his heart. To spend time with him is to be able to access that energy in yourself, which is the most local form of tikkun olam.”

Elisa Albert, Author and Professor
