Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Partners in Torah’s signature phone-study program 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 (ex: Hebrew reading or Talmud) or in building their Jewish knowledge, are matched, one-to-one, with a carefully selected personal Torah trainer or “mentor,” for up to an hour-per-week of over-the-phone study and discussion. Participants can choose any topic, including Hebrew, Jewish philosophy, history—or a subject of their choosing.  Several different programs include www.PartnersInTorah.org | www.KoheletFellowships.com | www.MyKaddish.com | www.Jewpiter.com

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.

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.

Partners in Torah is an extraordinary organization. The idea is simple: they arrange for someone to learn with you individually over the phone. My partners quickly gauged my level and worked with me. The organization regularly monitors the relationship. I have now been learning Talmud once a week for several years. My study partner is excellent. This is real Gd-send for people, like me, who live in places remote from Jewish institutions for learning.

I called on a lark 5 years ago because they said it was free. Even if I paid thousands of dollars I could say that I have gotten more than my money's worth. My partner unlocked so many mysteries of Judaism and exposed me to the intricacies of Jewish law that I never would have discovered. More than that he has become a trusted advisor and friend, even being a witness at my wedding.

Partners In Torah is an amazing organization! To be given the gift of 4 years (and going strong) of Torah learning with a brilliant, kind, patient, wonderful partner is simply incredible! We are very close to finishing a full Tractate of Talmud. I can not imagine a week without our scheduled learning. Partners In Torah has truly changed my life! I feel blessed - I can't thank you enough.

I have been studying through Partners in Torah for 6 years. My partner has become like a family member, but one of my choosing. The hour we spend together is like a breath of fresh Jewish air. She teaches me, inspires me and enlightens me. Due to the work of Partners in Torah I have an opportunity which would never have before been possible.

I have been with my partner Jerry for about seven years...First of all, he knows everything. He is so knowledgeable and he explains everything in excellendt analogies. , I cannot stump him. Every queston I ever had about the nature of the world, our religion, whatever, he explains the true Torah point of view and it makes sense. He is a serious, straight up guy and has been very influential in my becoming a baal tshuvah. I absolutely recomment PIT for any beginner who wants to see what being Jewish is really about.

I was matched with a Chavrusah about 3 years ago. It has been a wonderful learning experience and allowed me, a non-observant Jes the opportunity to gain insight and knowlege and to grow. The organization checks up on me every few months and I'm always happy to take their call. I'm greatful for an excellent learning opportunity.

The organization carefully matches the learner with the partner. The partner I am assigned is intelligent and well-matched to me. She is willing to spend time to find answers and review material ahead of time.
