PARTNERS IN TORAH OF CLEVELAND HITS THE BALL OUT OF THE PARK WORLD-WIDE WITH AN ENGAGING WEEKLY SERIES FEATURING A DIFFERENT RENOWNED SPEAKER EACH WEEK.
Partners in Torah with Rabbi Pinchas Landis is a weekly digital series that originated as an in-person learning initiative bringing Cleveland Jews of all backgrounds together to learn as part of a chavrusa partnership in a beis medrash setting. When the Covid-19 pandemic forced the closing of such community programs, its parent organization (Partners Cleveland) was quick to adjust accordingly. Since March of 2020, Partners in Torah with Rabbi Landis has produced numerous digital learning series exploring current, historical, and personal growth topics. Hosted by popular educator and motivational speaker Rabbi Pinchas Landis, the program has gained a national following, thanks to content hosting powerhouse Torah Anytime.
Over the next several weeks, Partners in Torah with Rabbi Landis will live stream their latest digital production, 10 Steps to the New You, a promising new weekly series which will focus on ten fundamental ways to improve one’s connection to Torah and Hashem. The ten steps are based on a curriculum originally created by England’s Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, z”l, entitled 10 Paths to G-d. In each episode, Rabbi Landis will conduct a dynamic, engaging, and in-depth interview with a different highly acclaimed guest speaker. The program is guaranteed to inspire and uplift viewers as the featured guests share their passion, knowledge, and personal connection with the topic of the week.
