"We have a Torah that's not meant to be studied in isolation."

Partners in Torah is the perfect embodiment of that ethic – and you need someone who’s one step ahead of you… It was such an easy way to get in touch with myself.

Mayim Bialik - Award Winning Actress (Partner # 27,973)

Frequently Asked Questions

To make Judaism and Jewish wisdom as accessible as possible for Jews around the globe. No judgment. No hierarchy. No commitment. No cost.
 
Also, we aim to bring Jews of different backgrounds together in an atmosphere of camaraderie and mutual respect and put an end to polarization among Jews. We stood together at Mount Sinai — as one person with one heart — and were equal partners in Torah. Okay, so we got a little sidetracked. And we’re trying to get it back together, to unify the Jewish community — two people at a time.
Every participant gets their very own chavruta (a study partner) on any Jewish topic they choose. Partners study together (or chat) for about 30 minutes a week, usually by phone. What you learn is up to you and can change over time. There are no rules.
When you register, you get asked a bunch of questions so that we know who to look out for. The process should take under five minutes to complete. Once you’re done, we’ll display potential study partners who match your schedule, preferences, and the topic(s) you selected. You’ll choose (up to three) people, who we’ll then share your profile with, and confirm their availability. If none of the people you selected are available, we’ll reach out to other suitable study partners. We then schedule your first call (of course, you’ll be notified in advance). This process can happen quickly, or it can take some time. Please hang in there during the wait.
As a two-sided platform with learners who want to know more, and mentors who want to share their knowledge, you’ll either be paired with a learner or a mentor. Men and women with a day school, yeshiva, or an advanced Jewish education will generally sign up as mentors. Often, people want to be both a learner and a mentor. That’s awesome.
Welcome to the club — most participants don’t have a specific topic or text in mind when they join. Some people know what they want to study, but most just want to know more and don’t know where to begin. Others know which topics interest them but need some guidance on how to get started. That’s where our digital library comes. Click on library.partnersintorah.org, click on any category that interests you, and browse through previews of several study options. Together with your study partner, you’ll come up with the material that’s best for the two of you.
Definitely. Like we said before: No judgment. No hierarchy. No commitment. No cost.
You’ll always be just a click away from our dedicated support team. They can better understand your goals and find a better match. Before you make a change though, we suggest you give it a few tries. It’s like a first date — it sometimes doesn’t feel right, but then, things start to click. If you’re pretty sure it won’t work, especially if there’s something concerning, please contact our support team right away.
