Shteig Partner Learning
Like a lot of yiddish words, shteig doesn't quite have a translation, but roughly means rising together through learning. As people of the Book, we have been plugging into the Source of purpose and inspiration for millennia. In Shteig, you'll get matched with a mentor for a weekly power hour to talk, analyze and debate classic Jewish texts.
Topics include Weekly Parsha, Talmud, Maimonides, Pirkei Avos, or choose your own!
There must be a minimum of 300 miles of Shteig or 2 sessions of learning in order to be eligible.
Shteig meets on Thursdays throughout the year. Sign up here for more info.
Mesorah hosts several shabbatons throughout the year! One shabbaton is required for eligiblity.
After earning 1,000 Mesorah Miles, you are eligible for your free trip. Mesorah Trip options can be found here, and you will need to apply and be accepted to the trip. The stipend covers the ground costs for the trip, up to $300, but not the travel cost of getting to the destination. However..
- For Domestic Trips (eg LA, Miami) there is a separate travel subsidy that can cover your travel costs.
- For certain international trips, the cost of the trip is just the ticket. In this case, you can redeem your Mesorah Miles for $300 towards the cost of travel.
Mesorah Miles are redeemable for up to 12 months from when you complete the program.
