Three Partners in Study: Two People and a Text

By Orit Kent, Allison Cook

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, May 2012

The authors describe and advocate chevruta study -- the traditional form of Torah learning in which two study partners approach a text together. This method is a tool that helps people become comfortable picking up a Jewish text and trying to understand it; a tool for those more experienced to deepen their understandings, conversations, and relationships; and a tool to create enduring relationships between people and our rich tradition.
