Mission: Partners in Torah's phone-study program offers Jewish adults of all backgrounds across the globe 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 or in building their Jewish knowledge, are matched, one-to-one, with a carefully selected personal study partner for up to an hour-a-week of over-the-phone (or over Skype) study and discussion.
Results: Over 72,000 men and women from 2,337 cities in 39 countries have participated to date.
Fourteen years ago, I was introduced to my first Patner-in-Torah and am still learning with him as his time is available. Since then, I have found that PIT performs its mission with alacrity and sensitivity. For anyone who recognizes the importance of spirituality in his life, PIT can help fill that void. Having worked pro bono for non-profits, I see a major difference as the commitment of their people goes beyond what others do to fill their mission. PIT is a head above those because of its personal commitment to help each one reach his goal.
