Mrs. Wells became a professional Torah reader in 2003.  She is the Ba’alat Kriah at a local synagogue, and has taught Torah cantillation to approximately one hundred Bar/Bat Mitzvah students.  The goal of SHDS’s cantillation class is to enhance students’ familiarity with and understanding of trope symbols, as well as the ritual surrounding the weekly act of taking out and reading the Torah scroll in synagogue.  Upon completing this class, students should feel confident that they know exactly what to do if and when they are called to the Torah.
