Kriah, the cornerstone of Jewish education holds the key to enter the world of Torah, from the basic Pesukim of Chumash to the deepest secrets of Chassidus. Learning Kriah correctly is crucial and shapes the future of a child’s journey in Torah.
The letters of the Alef Beis and the Nekudos that comprise Lashon Hakodesh are holy and precise, given to us at Har Sinai. Teaching it in that exact manner has a lasting spiritual impact. Because of this, Gedolei Yisrael and particularly the Chabad Rebbeim urged that it be taught in the traditional method. It is more than just a technical means to mastering the skill of reading; many hidden components are transmitted through correct pronunciation and decoding.
Hamesorah was created to bring this age-old method into today’s modern classroom. Hamesorah provides new and experienced teachers with practical tools to implement effective Kriah practice in their classrooms and help every child become a proficient Hebrew reader.

“My son was struggling with kriah. I have tried different methods in teaching Kriah and none seem to be working for my children…” “Rabbi Schtroks taught us to use the Mesorah way through the correct methods… My son is now reading after 2 months better than his older brothers, as his foundation is solid.”
