The New York Times recently carried a story describing the new trend of 'e-prepping' for Bar & Bat Mitzvah ceremonies via the internet. More and more 'cyber Rabbis' are offering Bar Mitzvah training using Skype and a webcam for personal one-on-one training sessions aided by digital audio and Youtube recordings of the melodies for the Torah and Haftarah readings.
