TorahTutors is a new, text-based, Torah-study program, using state-of-the-art videoconferencing technology. Whether you are a Jewish professional looking for a steady chavruta, a Jewish home-schooling parent seeking guidance and a teacher to supplement the Judaic Studies component of your child's education, or a Jewish day-school parent whose child requires a tutor in his or her Torah subjects - TorahTutors could be for you!
Drawing on an array of skilled teachers and tutors, men and women, from across the spectrum of the Torah world, we will work with you to tailor a program that's just right for you.
How Does TorahTutors Work?
To make use of TorahTutors, all you need is a computer with a broadband Internet connection, and speakers or headphones. A web camera is optional, although highly recommended, to enable you and your TorahTutors teacher to get to know each other better.
TorahTutors is an affiliate of WebYeshiva, initiated by Rabbi Chaim Brovender. Since 2007, Rabbi Brovender's dream has been to make Torah accessible to Jews all over the world and to help them imporve their learning skills in an interactive classroom environment, using the latest internet technology.
In the spring of 2010, Rabbi Brovender invited Rabbi Ron-Ami Meyers, WebYeshiva teacher and long-time student, to launch TorahTutors. Along with Rabbi Yedidya Rausman and his dedicated staff, Rabbi Brovender and Rabbi Meyers have been working diligently to make TorahTutors a reality.
TorahTutors and WebYeshiva are part of the Atid organization, founded by Rabbi Chaim Brovender and directed by Rabbi Jeffrey Saks.

What our students are saying
"TorahTutors affords me the ability to learn with a rabbi from a well known Jerusalem-based yeshiva who otherwise would be unavailable to me. If you prefer the personal touch over videotaped lectures TorahTutors is for you!"
Daniel M. Schwartz,
"My son attended a private Jewish day school through second grade. When we began homeschooling him in the third grade, he grew greatly in his secular studies, but his Jewish education stagnated. Since finding TorahTutors, my son Yitzchak is once again embracing his Jewish studies with enthusiasm. He has a great rapport with his tutor, who genuinely cares about him and his education. Recently, Yitzchak said to me, ''I have learned more in this month with my tutor than I learned all of my last school year."
