As you well know, the Torah has the power to uplift and transform our lives, but not when it’s sitting on a bookshelf, rolled up in a scroll, or being lectured to a passive audience. It’s power is unleashed through shteiging. Shteiging over Torah, discussing, challenging, arguing, debating, is how we grow. Share that power.

Olami Shteig is a new learning platform that introduces Torah learning to Jewish students and young professionals around the world, allowing them to sign up for a short course, meet other people, be mentored by someone living an inspired Torah life and get shteiging.


As a mentor, you’ll have the rewarding opportunity to positively influence and impact young people through volunteering an hour of your time to shteig with a student on a weekly basis. Sign up with Olami Shteig to help secure a Jewish tomorrow and inspire greatness! Tell us more about yourself so we can start matching you with a student.

Upcoming session dates:


special chanuka session

Is there a cost?

The program is completely FREE. Thanks to the generosity of Olami benefactors coupled with the hundreds of mentors who are volunteering their time, this is really a once-in a-lifetime opportunity!

Is this a long-term commitment?

Part of the power of the program is the ability to foster meaningful relationships over an extended period of time. While you should plan to commit to at least a 4-week session of one hour each, you can choose to stop participating at any time.  Please just let us know in advance if your schedule has changed and you are no longer able to participate so that your mentor is not left hanging.

What kind of Jewish background do I need to join the program?

This program is accessible to Jewish with limited or even no Jewish background. We will match you with a knowledgeable mentor so you can discuss and learn the topics that you’re most passionate about.

Do I need to prepare anything ahead of time?

There is no need to prepare anything ahead of time. We provide source materials for each week, along with a coherent translation of all Hebrew texts.

Who will I be matched with?

We will try to connect you with the best possible partner(s).  Like any matching process, you can always switch partners if it is not a suitable match. With over 1,000 students already engaged in this Olami program globally, the vast majority of students are very happy with their mentors and vice versa.
