Rabbi Gewirtz and the whole team are exceptional. In my experience in the Jewish education field, the model they are using is the best: thousands of volunteers coming forward because they care are creating personal and non-judgmental relationships with thousands more who want to connect in some way -- in their own way. Very impressed.
Fantastic organization - they have given me great partners from whom I have learned and continue to learn a great deal. My learning with them is a highlight of my week.
Absolutely a fantastic organization - I started going to a group 10 years ago and I am still in touch with my first chavruta and have had a few others since. Amazing people who have been a tremendous support system in my own teshuva and true friends.
Excellent group of people doing a wonderful Chesed for Klal Yisroel!
Partners in Torah is a fantastic organization. Whether you want to learn or teach, its a great way to make a connection with another Jew that can last you a lifetime.
Everyone who works or volunteers here is dedicated and amazing. I've gained so much simply through volunteering. I hope they grow and grow - they do so much while asking for so little.
This organization, who charge not even a penny for its services has being doing a great job all over the world....right now im living abroad and still they helped me to match me with a great partner...we study one hour a week but it has being enough to help me to improve my knowledge about our heritate, customs and even about our daily routines....i love this program and all his supporting staff!!!
THnka to Partners in Torah I had the chance to learn more about judaism even though im not in the states. the phone-study partnership is a great program to reach jews all over the world and educated them in our jewish heritage. Besides, the weekly emails are a great source to learn about the parasha. I love this program, and in my humble opinion, is one of the best kiruv programs ever.
A number of years ago, I responded to an impassioned plea by the founder of this wonderful organizaion to get involved in being a mentor to another Jew who has expressed an interest in learning more about his heritage. Getting involved in this way has fostered a bond of friendship and has enabled a connection of spiritual growth for my partner and I; I can't imagine how this could happen without having Partners In Torah as the forum which facilitated this connection. I have been learning with my current partner in Torah for many years now. So much good has come out of our relationship; I have tried to help him thru many issues in his spiritual progression; he has enriched my life with his sincerity and goodness. This organization beams with "success stories"; it is truly a win-win organization for all those involved.
As a "teacher" in a Partner's-in-Torah partnership for quite a bit already, I can't begin to express my admiration for this wonderful organization. Each week, I continue to learn so much from my partner and am truly grateful for this wonderful opportunity. Thank you Partner's in Torah for all your wonderful work!!
I was extremely pleased and impressed with the precision, efficiency, and care of the Partners in Torah Organization and is employees. I have always wanted to be involved with teaching, and the expert matching of the Partners in Torah system/database paired me up with a student. We genuinely get along--we are matched on a common intellectual level and personality. Studying with my Torah partner has been a genuinely enjoyable experience. I appreciated the follow up, attention and guidance that I received from the Partners in Torah employees.
I have two partners with whom I study. One is a college student with whom I study mishna on campus at the Hillel House. The other, is a retired senior who lives in Montreal, Canada who was a refusnik in the fromer Soviet Union. We study mishna via telephone. Thanks to Partners in Torah we have each grown and profited greatly from our respective relationships. The program is simple yet powerful- to pair up individuals to study Torah throughout the globe. Why should distance be an impediment to the study of Torah?! I am very greatful to them for these opportunities and hope & pray that, with G-D's help, they continue seeing success in all their projects.
I Have been a teacher for Partners in Torah for quite a few years and it has been of great benefit to me. My partner is severely disabled and his dedication to our learning has been a great inspiriation to me, The organization's literature has helped me a great deal in understanding not only how to relate to my partner but also to the world at large. I highly recommend this organization to all who have any interest in Judaism and/or Torah. Eliyahu Ellman
