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

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.

Partners in Torah's signature phone study program gives 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 who have an interest in Jewish study but who may lack the academic background, 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 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 30,000 intellectually curious Jews across North America, and today supports some 13,000 weekly study partnerships. Alongside its successful TelePartners program, Partners in Torah publishes "The Jewish Spirit", a quarterly magazine, and "Parsha Partner", a weekly Torah portion newsletter. Partners in Torah also runs a full range of exciting study programs including personalized community-based learning, celebrated Shabbatons and unforgettable retreats. A cohesive team of 26 qualified professionals work out of offices in New Jersey and Jerusalem. One of the most important aspects of the study program is clearly Partners in Torah's involvement and ongoing support offered to each of its participants – week in and week out. 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.
