Shteiging is learning 3.0!
We don't just learn, we rise.

Like a lot of Yiddish words, shteig doesn't quite have a translation. It means to rise and grow through learning - like you’ve never experienced before. Forget old-school front-of-class style classes, let us pair you up with a partner to grapple with Judaism’s most controversial, intriguing and compelling ideas.

How it works


Tell us about yourself

Your name, your age, what you do, what time slot might suit...


We’ll partner you with someone unlikeminded

To shteig is to grapple with and challenge what you’re learning.
To discuss it and debate it. To go back and forth with someone who thinks differently. It’s that friction that ignites something deep inside. letting you grow into the person you want to be.

Shteig Participant

Shteig has been my only constant throughout various lockdowns. The discussions on Jewish ethics I have with my mentor are my weekly reminder to think and reflect on my actions. It's helped me to learn more regularly and motivates me to do more. I really recommend this program!

So far I have attended about 6 shteig sessions with my mentor Jonah. I always come out learning a new perspective or something completely new that I didn’t realise before the shteig. it is great to be able to have such sessions during such times especially with everything that is going on in the world

I’ve been involved with Olami’s Shteig Program for almost 3 months now, and I love it. It’s truly amazing and connective! Such a unique experience to sign on once a week and be part of a group of friends that’s purely virtual, we login from all over the world, and see each other every week.
