I am an Orthodox Rabbi who worked in Jewish education for 10 years. I have tutored in Biblical Hebrew, Tanach, and rabbinic texts for close to 20 years. My goal as a teacher is to give my students a strong foundation that will allow the student to develop both fluency and independence in their studies. Though I provide many of the materials, Biblical Hebrew lessons will be based on "The First Hebrew Primer." For more experienced students, I can assist in the study of the weekly Torah portion, or any other Biblical or rabbinic text desired. I look forward to working with you!

I am just your average country boy who became interested in Hebrew and Jewish studies and wound up becoming an Orthodox Rabbi. I was a yeshiva teacher in NY for over 10 years and have privately tutored in Hebrew and Jewish topics for the past 20 years. I have made it my mission to make it easier for people from all backgrounds and walks of life to gain a basic knowledge of Biblical and Jewish texts and the languages they are written in. Over the years, I have taught Biblical Hebrew, Aramaic and Yiddish, as well as a wide range of Jewish texts and topics.
I am married to my high school sweetheart and have 3 wonderful children. In addition to languages and Jewish studies, I have a keen interest in music, philosophy and Medieval History.
An amazing instructor! Very patient and extremely knowledgeable! I’m learning a lot!!
Eliezer is a great teacher. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn Biblical Hebrew or other ancient Semitic languages like me. I am enjoying his lessons and I am learning at a good pace.
Eliezer is a wonderful teacher! He is so generous with his time and a lot of fun to work with. I am learning so much about both Yiddish language AND Jewish culture. I am excited to keep working with him.
Rav Eliezer is a great teacher. Tanakh, mishna, gemara, etc.
Eliezer is an amazing teacher! He's very knowledgeable, and clearly conveys information to his students.

Eliezer is an excellent teacher. He loves the subjects he teaches and goes the extra mile to help his students understand them from different perspectives. Also, he is very patient and understanding of those who are new to learning the subjects at hand.
I've spent a lot of time learning from a multitude of teachers (I have a Ph.D.), and I can say without reservation that Eliezer is the very best teacher I've ever had bar none! If you are considering learning with Eliezer, go for it! You will be very happy that you did!
Splendid chap who is immeasurably knowledgeable concerning things related to Hebrew and Judaism. A patient and gentle teacher who is a true guide to the perplexed, curious or otherwise knowledge-seeking student. He is my all-time favorite teacher for these reasons.Show More
Eliezer is patient and thorough in his explanations. Every lesson builds on and reinforces prior content in a clear and easy to follow way. He offers a variety of topics that make learning Hebrew accessible and interesting. As a student, I find myself quickly making connections between the lessons and other exposures I have to the language, as in prayers, conversation, and text study. I am grateful that another friend referred him to me.Show More
As a tutor Eliezer is very personable, down-to-earth, and good at making complex grammar easier to navigate. It helps me a lot to have a tutor who understands test anxiety and who has the patience to approach challenging exercises from different angles until it clicks!Show More
