PARTNERS IN TORAH
November 13, 2009

Every week Partners in Torah provides a much needed lifeline to me for growth. I live in a place with little access to the level of learning extended to me through Partners in Torah and the weekly Parsha Partners. Every week the ideas brought to me over the phone and by email I use to engage my family and community in "applied" torah practice. The gift of Torah light is wonderful and has touched many in our community in direct and indirect ways. Thank you Partners in Torah. I am exactly the type of person you wanted to help and the help has been a blessing to so many.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my weekly parsha discussions with my family and community. I have also been able to refresh/review/learn navi to better support my children's Jewish education.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them 10 million bucks.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The partners I have been paired with have been good matches. We learn from each other. The Parsha Partners covers many things I know, but ALWAYS has a new fact and a good idea for me to use for discussion.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

High quality, good neshamas, and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Set up a kollel in my town. Or start a quality Day Schol. Establish an orthodox neighborhood.

Ways to make it better...

my schedules could match better. My torah partners have been in different time zones and teach in day schools and I work and commute, so finding an ideal time isn't always easy.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not known to me. I am not familiar with the inner workings of the service. It has never failed me.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They have done a terrific job in follow up. I receive a phone call every couple of months to make sure things are going well with my torah partner. This person has been very pleasant and effective.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
