Each week Torah Studies delivers timely lessons from the Torah, covering fascinating ideas and issues raised by the most timeless of Jewish texts.
Welcome to Torah Studies
The Torah Studies program was founded to bring you the tradition of classical Jewish learning in a series of enticing weekly classes. Each class introduces ideas and issues from the current weekly Torah portion and, through discussion and debate, creates a meaningful connection between the timeless wisdom of the Torah and modern-day living.
The purpose of Torah Studies goes far beyond a mere discovery of knowledge. Every class creates an opportunity to truly understand how you can better your life today.
Since it was founded, Torah Studies has spread to more than 275 cities across six continents. You'll never struggle to find a class nearby.
