Review for PARTNERS IN TORAH, Passaic, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

the ability to learn and befriend a complete stranger by encouraging and sharing our common heritage.

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

truly wonderful, non-judgemental people.

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

bring the light of Torah to so many more Jews thirsty for it.
