Why would someone need a computer program to teach Torah Reading? How did people learn to read the Torah before computers were invented?

The fact that you found this question at all, on the computer, is the best answer to your question.
Once upon a time, people used to use a horse and buggy to get around. Today we use cars and airplanes. Of course you can continue to learn Torah reading the old fashioned way ...
Grandpa learned Torah reading only with a Rebbe, his son learned with a teacher and tape recorder. Today's Bar Mitzvah student can learn Torah reading using the wonders of modern technology.
Using a digital recording of your Torah portion makes the learning experience that much more alive and exciting!

  • You can quickly move between the different portions or aliyahs.
  • Your teacher can create recordings quickly and easily and download them to you with the press of a button.
  • You can rehearse whenever or whereever it is convenient for you.
  • You can easily repeat difficult words/phrases by having the digital recording show them to you on-screen.

Why would I want to specifically use Kol Kore?

There are many methods for learning Torah reading that use either tapes, recordings and even other computer programs. They are all very good and worthy.
But we feel that Kol Kore is absolutely the best program there is for learning Torah reading quickly and efficiently.
Kol Kore enables accurate Torah reading from Torah reading experts, all recorded using their actual voices.
Every recorded word is highlighted on-screen and heard as the reader reads it, word by word.
Kol Kore enables the student to repeat a single word or single phrase, or entire Aliyah, as needed by the student.
Kol Kore also enables the student to work with his own private teacher, who may use Kol Kore to create personal recordings for the student.
Kol Kore - It's worth it!

I have been teaching Bar Mitzvah students for many years. How can Kol Kore help me?

Kol Kore is the only Torah reading program which allows you, the teacher to use your vast experience and your own voice with the Kol Kore program.
By integrating Kol Kore in your learning process, your students will accomplish much, much, more in much, much, less time. The rich learning experience will remain with your student for a lifetime.
Word gets around. If your student has a great learning experience, you'll have many more students...
You have the option of using the existing Kol Kore Ba'alei Keriah (Torah readers) or alternatively, creating you own personal recording, by using the Teacher's Package, that may be easily downloaded to your students' copy of Kol Kore.

I've already started learning to read my Torah portion with a teacher that is not familiar with Kol Kore. Can I use the program even if he is not?

It's never too late!
If you are interested in enhancing your learning experience and your results, have your teacher create a recording of your Torah portion using his/her copy of Kol Kore's Teacher Edition.
Or
Simply send us a copy of your recording, with your teacher's approval, of course, and we will create a customized recording (for a small fee), for you to use in your Kol Kore program.

Why is an Activation Key required in order to operate the Kol Kore program?

Kol Kore was designed not only to help you fulfill Mitzvot, but also as a profit making enterprise.
We have invested much time and money into creating a GREAT program FOR YOU. As such, we emphatically request that it not be copied without our permission and, in fact, manually restrict copying the program by providing you with a dongle and a unique Activation Key which must be inserted in order to activate Kol Kore.
Without the dongle and activation key, Kol Kore operates in Demo mode only. There is no perfect protection system. The dongle is meant for G-d fearing people. According to the the Kol Kore License, the program software remains the property of Kol Kore. You are only granted the right to use the software. You are not authorized to copy the program for a friend.
The inconvience caused to you by using the dongle or activation key is minimal.
