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.

Different, Yet Equal
“We’re All the Same!” Is Tempting. It’s Also Premature

“It’s Not My Thing” Is Not an Excuse

We all have our comfort zones. You’re forgiven for wanting to stay there. But remember this: If you do, you will never grow. Worse yet, when someone else needs you, they’ll receive no answer. A curious plot twist in an ancient desert story with clouds of glory and heavenly mann calls us to get uncomfortable and be there for someone else—even if it’s not “your thing.”
