Junior TorahMates is a free partnership program where students and their mentors learn together. They study any Jewish topic that interests them, once a week for 30-60 minutes. Junior TorahMates is a part of the larger TorahMates program.
Junior TorahMates is a great program for Jewish kids ages 9-17. We set up more knowledgeable volunteer mentors with students with less background. Usually, both partners find they gain tremendously from their study together.
It’s up to you! You can study any topic that interests you, as long as it has something to do with Judaism. Jewish homework, Hebrew reading, Torah, prayers... you get the idea.
We have a large database of kids and teens who’ve signed up that we’ll use to find the perfect match for you. Some of the things we look for are common interests, backgrounds, and personality matches. Often, these partnerships develop into far more than routine study sessions. Many of our TorahMates are now close friends too!
Most TorahMates study over the phone but FaceTime or the like is also a great option. Where possible, some TorahMates even study in person - privately or at a local ChillZone location.
Once you’ve decided what topic you want to learn, your TorahMates coordinator will suggest a book that you’ll enjoy. Not everyone learns from a text, but many do. We’ll supply each of you with one free book per year of learning.
Your coordinator will work with both partners to smooth out any issues that may arise. If nothing can be worked out or if it’s just not a match, we can find new partners for each TorahMate.
The mileage program is a great perk through which TorahMates can earn awesome prizes by logging in their sessions by date and number of minutes learned. You can log in online, by phone or text, or through the TorahMates App. Your TorahMates coordinator can show you how.
