Telephone

DID YOU KNOW that 24 hours a day, 6 days a week, in three languages anyone can dial a phone and take advantage of a dynamic learning opportunity?

In an effort to find more personal and convenient ways for Jews to connect to their heritage, Chabad established the Jewish Learning Network. At no cost, and after a simple application process and phone interview to ascertain background knowledge, participants will choose a study topic and schedule half an hour a week with an assigned volunteer study partner.

Study topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Kabbalah and Chassidism
  • Weekly Parsha
  • Jewish Law
  • Talmud

By telephone, Chabad also offers options for both brief and in depth Torah lessons in Hebrew, English and Yiddish. By touchtone, you can listen to an interesting recording about the weekly parsha, learn about holidays and festivals, Chassidic philosophy, stories and niggunim (melodies) and various topics of Jewish thought and practice.  Learning by phone is a valuable luxury for those with busy lives; for those who are homebound or ill the telephone line becomes a lifeline.

For families and children, Chabad educators designed programs so that the ordinary telephone becomes an engaging, valuable educational resource and entertainment tool. Each week, families can dial in together and hear a Jewish story, learn about an upcoming holiday, study Torah and hear delightful songs.

So whether you are sitting in traffic, at home on a rainy night, or stuck at the airport, you can pick up a phone and have time well spent. If you would like to volunteer, CLICK HERE to learn more about volunteering opportunities.
