CHEVRUTA* STUDY

INDIVIDUAL STUDY

Todd Asher

Ready to try learning out of a class, on your own time?

We’ll be studying in pairs (it’s traditional!), in order to go deep in text and emphasize personal meaning. See, in chevruta there’s time to discuss any and all ideas with each other, pursue tangents, and even argue with the text, not to mention the previous generations of commentators.

And you won’t be totally solo, even in your pair - every seven weeks or so we’ll all get together with a teacher or Kitchen Rabbi to talk about what we’ve found.

The first meeting will be December 13th, where we’ll introduce chevruta study for people who are new, dust off skills for those who are rusty, and let the experienced folks teach the rest of us how it’s done.

If you have a chevruta partner already in mind, sign up together; if not, come the first night and we’ll work to get you a partner who matches your own goals. No experience necessary.

Contact Todd Asher for more information or to sign up.


*Chevruta means = in pairs, as friends, study partners
