We just learned that tomorrow is International Day of Friendship, and naturally, we immediately thought about how that connects – deeply! – to TorahTutors.
In 2011, the UN proclaimed what the Rabbis knew thousands of years ago: the importance of making connections with others.
Many commentators on Pirkei Avot (Ethics of Our Fathers) understand the advice to “acquire for yourself a friend” in the same context of “make for yourself a teacher” – namely, that both are important for Torah study.
With TorahTutors, you can sign up to learn Jewish texts online with a friend anywhere in the world, with the guidance of one of our amazing teachers – or we can “acquire” a friend for you by matching learners into small groups.
We know from years of experience that learning together, with peers and/or a mentor, can lead to immeasurable growth and connection.
