I somehow through fate stumbled upon Cantor Ben’s website after deciding that at 33 years old, I wanted to work towards getting my Bat Mitzvah. I figured the weekly emails between Ben and I would mostly just be about stories from the Torah. However, after just our first email exchange, I quickly realized how much more impactful my exchanges with Ben were going to be. Not only does Ben do an amazing job narrowing down each week to a specific topic of growth and personal development (for example: how to overcome fears, finding inner peace), but he finds a way to relate it to a passage from the Torah. He breaks the theme down, shares his own personal experience and then asks me to share my experience. His responses to my emails are really so special. He truly listens to what I say, understands where I am coming from, makes sure to highlight my growth and always finds a way to bring things back to Jewish wisdom. He is connecting me to my Jewish background without me even realizing it. In addition, Ben shows me that he cares because he always keeps the conversation going throughout the week. He’ll ask me follow up questions which I always appreciate. After just one month working with Ben I already feel a closer connection not only to my Jewish heritage but to myself as well. He has helped me appreciate all the amazing qualities about myself along with showing me how to focus on the positive. He’s not just my Cantor but he’s my life coach and I am truly grateful for him!

Along with guiding me through my Bat Mitzvah studies, and being my life coach, Cantor Ben has also become my business mentor. He has truly transformed my small business. Feeling stuck in a rut with my business, Ben guided me towards realizing what my true passion in within my business is and has helped me come up with attainable steps towards implementing this new vision. He has been instrumental in helping me towards expanding my business as well. Where I felt like I had hit my ceiling with the amount of clients I could take on, Ben has showed me ways to expand that I never thought about. He has not only guided me through this expansion process but he has truly given me a new purpose with the work I do. If you are in need of any business mentoring.. website design, advertising, business growth and development, then Ben is your answer!
