About Breakthrough Chinuch
Breakthrough Chinuch was founded in 2009 by Rabbi Jonathan Rietti with the goal of offering a "hands-on" curriculum—to compliment the traditional Chinuch system—for teachers, schools, and homeschooling parents. To achieve this goal, we conduct teacher training, consultation for parents, and live school presentations in the Tri-State area and nationally. Our curriculum focuses on strengthening the children in the areas of Emunah, Tefila, Lashon Hakodesh, Chumash and Taryag Mitzvot. This is achieved with our educational materials that the children interact with "hands-on" and in multiple modalities.
About Rabbi Rietti
Rabbi Jonathan Rietti – a descendant of the Sephardic leader the Ben Ish Chai and son of the famous British actor Robert Rietti, known as ‘The Man of a Thousand Voices’ and ‘King of the Dubbers’ – received his rabbinical diploma from Gateshead Talmudical College, England, after which he helped establish the now flourishing Kollel in Gibraltar. Having received a master’s in education, he has practiced for over thirty years as an educational consultant to parents of gifted children and those with ADD. With Montessori training, he has developed a curriculum which dovetails a Torah education with Montessori methodology.
Rabbi Rietti has authored over two hundred lectures on topics including inner growth, health, parenting and Jewish identity, and draws upon his background in the film and advertising industries to entertain the listener while sharing powerful insights on love, happiness and ‘emotional intelligence.
