Both Partners in Torah and Jnet.org offer free study up to an hour a week. Is it unethical to study with both organizations? Is it similar to obtaining welfare under two names?September 12, 2013 3:56 am at 3:56 am #976216Burnt SteakParticipant
You might as well try to find out their number and ask them. But since it’s torah I would guess that neither of the organizations would object if you do the free hour with both.
Also if you are interested in torah study you should try to contact a local synagog/kollel and see if they have a similar program. I think chabbad also has a program like Partners in Torah and Jnet.org.

I’m a Partner In Torah and encouraged my partner to get another person to learn with, since she has so many questions and BH is growing so well. No one person can provide you with everything you need, so I would say to go for it!
Also, start looking for a Rabbi.September 15, 2013 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm #976219oomisParticipant

@oomis – Exactly my sentiments. I am at present signed up with a wonderful chavrusa from an organization like Partners in Torah, and before finding success there, I applied to a lot of places, including Partners in Torah. I think you should embrace every Torah-learning opportunity you think get your hands on – so long as you don’t get overwhelmed!September 15, 2013 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #976221

Thank you. Being unemployed 43 yo man, I understand that in many places I am not welcome but tolerated.
In any case I am not looking for any kind of mystical knowledge — just the very basics of observance.September 16, 2013 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #976222apushatayidParticipant

@Lost1970 – I understand what you mean.
As a frum person, it was hard to find an organization what would take me seriously, because many of them want to set up non-observant Jews with chavrusas so that they can grow in spirituality. I think it’s still worthwhile for already frum Jews to utilize a chavrusa-matching organization, because you can never stop learning.
