MESORAH MILES SCHEDULE

SHTEIG VIRTUAL PARTNER LEARNING
Resuming Thursday Oct. 7th!

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!
