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
I wasn't set up yet to learn with any one because there are a lot of volunteers in my age group. Can't wait until I get a phone call!
As a volunteer mentor, I have experienced the tremendous ambition of this organization. They are completely devoted to the success of their participants. Whenever I began a new study relationship, I have received regular follow-up phone calls to inquire as to how it's going and to give me feedback from my study partner. The help and guidance they've provided have been instrumental in my continued involvement and commitment to the organization.
My torah partner is amazing. His knowledge and insight into the torah is eye opening. He inspires me to want to learn more, the time we spend on the phone goes so fast, I wish I could learn more with him. He has introduced me to so many aspects of Jewish learning and rabinic sources. I felt uncomfortable at times that I didn't know something, but my torah partner didn't make me feel bad, in fact, he inspired me to want to learn, and said I could ask him any questions and he would be glad to answer. I have been blessed with a great partner. Thank you for your organization.
I have found the experience of sharing with others, amazing. To be able to enlighten others and assist them fulfill their quest and quench their thirst, extremely fulfilling. I have a partner with whom I communicate on a weekly basis. We at Partners in Torah are fulfilling the responsibility of a nation, reaching out to those who wish, and educating them about their heritage. It makes me proud to be able to say that I volunteer for Partners in Torah.
I especially look foward to your weekly Parsha Letter. They are informative, educational, interesting and always well written. Thank You!
