The Jewish Learning Network was established in 2005 to fulfil the Lubavitcher Rebbe's instruction to encourage all jews to set fixed times for Torah study.
“One should strive as much as possible, and more, to influence every single Jew, regardless of his location or circumstances, to designate a set time for Torah study. When one encounters a Jew in the street, one should ask him if he has already set a time for Torah study. If he has, one should influence him to increase further—ideally, by influencing him to become a teacher himself.”
(Hisva’aduyos 5745, Vol. 1, pp. 461-2)
JNet provides business people, students and homemakers the opportunity to take some time out of their busy work week - whether at the office at home or even on the go - to study Torah, from the weekly Parsha to the technical intricacies of Jewish Law, the stimulating logical analysis of the Talmud to the spirituality and meaning of Chassidus and the Kabbalah.
For our volunteers JNet brings you the opportunity to bring the warmth of Torah and Judaism to people whose situations restrict them from acquiring it other ways. The relationship you build can affect people’s lives positively in the way we were educated by the Rebbe "If you know Aleph teach Aleph". In just half an hour a week, you gain an experience that will leave you feeling fulfilled and wanting to spend even more time with your study partner.
The process is simple. After you apply you will be called for a brief phone interview to ascertain the specifics of your learning background, availability and study topics. Typically within one to two weeks we will pair you up with a study partner. Once you start studying we will reach out every now and then to see how things are going. You can always contact us for assistance if anything comes up.
The Jewish Learning Network is a non-profit organization and relies on donations to make the service available to everyone for free.
