BAT KOL INSTITUTE FOR JEWISH STUDIES, JERUSALEM

INTERNATIONAL TORAH STUDY PARTNERS PROPOSAL

 

16 April 2018

 

We are aware that many Bat Kol alums lack Torah study partners.   In response to this, Bat Kol has an exciting new proposal which offers a golden opportunity for international study together

 

Would you like to meet with a study partner/group

ON SKYPE, WHATSAPP, FACETIME, etc.?

Now this can happen! And this is how it will work:

 

Bat Kol will assist with matching study partners, or small groups of, say, two, three or four maximum. To be part of this new project, will you please:

 

  1. Email Gill Putnam gill@batkol.info and Sandra Clark sandra@bearwickhouse.on.ca to let us know that you want to join, and suggest a partner/group if you know already who you would like to study with;
  2. If you don’t have names to suggest then contact Gill and Sandra, and we will pair/group you;
  3. Tell us which you want to use – Skype, WhatsApp, Facetime, etc. – and where you live so that we can match you according to media and time zones.

 

Our suggestion is that pairs/groups meet twice a month for six months, and then could change partners if the current pair/group has not meshed.

 

If you have any questions, please email Gill and Sandra;

 

As soon as we have enough names, we will be in touch with some suggestions, hints and tips on how this can work to bring you the joy of shared Torah study.

 

Dr Marcie Lenk, Bat Kol’s Academic Director, has met weekly with a study partner in the USA for several years and thoroughly recommends it.

 

We look forward to your response.

 

Shavua Tov!
