About Partners in Torah
Partners in Torah offers Jewish adults of all backgrounds across North America a cost-free learning opportunity to discover Judaism – its culture, history, and traditions – at their pace and their schedule. Jewish men and women with an interest in acquiring specific skills or who simply want to build on their Jewish knowledge-base, are matched, one-to-one, with a carefully selected personal Torah trainer or “mentor” for up to an hour a week of over-the-phone (or over-Skype) study and discussion. Participants can choose any topic including Hebrew, Jewish philosophy, or history.
In its decade and a half of operation, Partners in Torah has engaged more than 50,000 intellectually curious Jews across North America, and today supports some 4,500 weekly study partnerships (over 9,000 individuals!).
In addition to making Jewish knowledge accessible to Jews no matter where they may live, Partners in Torah aims to foster unity among Jews of all backgrounds and denominations.
