TorahMates has allowed me to connect with my heritage in a profound way, deepening my connection to Judaism through a growing sense of what it means to be immersed in the path set for us by our Creator. This has changed my life so much for the better, setting me up to grow.Joseph Morris, Albany NY
TorahMates is very inspirational, it's almost like a vitamin for me. I so look forward to speaking with my TorahMate and learning every single week, it’s very uplifting. I encourage each person to get a TM; you will find it very rewarding.Shifra Goldis, Melville NY
Over many years I have been learning Gemara weekly with Rabbi Rabinowitz, and we are now completing an entire tractate - previously I had no training or experience in Gemara...I am so proud to be celebrating this milestone...This has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments, and I am deeply grateful for this experience.Daniel Sacke, North York ON
Being involved with TorahMates has been one of the best experiences of my life. Rivka is an amazing partner and I am so grateful for all of her knowledge and wisdom as we explore the Torah together. Really I could not have imagined a better experience or partnership when I embarked on this journey.Kelsey Sullivan, Portland OR
My TorahMate has become my best friend. Everything we do we talk about, and it’s all in the framework of learning and Torah. We have an amazing relationship because of the foundation through Torah that we have. TorahMates is the best thing that ever happened to me.Laurie Goldstone, Woodmere NY

TorahMates is a great way to expand your mind by not allowing the mundane responsibilities to take over your life. It has also opened my eyes to a whole new world of great friendships, and a better understanding as a Jew.Jaison Gutterman, Staten Island NY

Devorah is not only my mentor but a dear friend. She and her wonderful Rabbi husband never fail to answer my questions and they treat me as if I'm a member of their beautiful, loving family. I can honestly say I have never met anyone like Devorah.

Things are going very well with Eleyahu, we speak every week and go over the Torah portion. I practice reading in hebrew, and Eleyahu coaches me in pronunciation and meaning. I feel like I'm getting a very excellent education from Eleyahu...
-Max Friedman, Dallas TX
The hebrew is going along great as I am becoming a quicker and quicker learner. Nechama is a great partner and is always so sweet, I wanted to give you a special thank you since its an honor for me to finally be able to learn more about Judaism and Hebrew.
-Terry Kahn, Silver Spring MD
I could not be more pleased with Dvorah, my learning partner. Her life is full with family responsibilities and community commitments yet she found time to share with me. With our first lesson, she challenged me with her knowledge and was very patient with my questions. I received The Hebrew Reading Crash Course today. Thank you! I see that the book starts slowly but progresses quickly so that the student experiences many successes along the way.

Leah and I are learning together once a week and she has become so much more to me. I feel so comfortable talking to her and she has become a source of comfort and inspiration.
-Cary Cooperman, Toronto ON
The gift of learning Hebrew and the lessons in Torah and Judaism are dreams come true. What a wonderful organization!
-Leslie Donner, London England
Over time, I learned to read Hebrew, and with patience and understanding, Dovid clarified many things in Judaism to me that I never fully appreciated (as a beginner).
