Something happens when we shteig. We don’t just learn, we rise.
Like a lot of Yiddish words, shteig doesn’t quite have a translation. It means to rise through learning, like you’ve never experienced before.
To shteig is to grapple with and challenge what you’re learning with a partner. To really listen to someone who perhaps thinks differently. To discuss it and debate it. Together. It’s that interaction that ignites something deep inside. So when you really engage in this amazing style of learning, something happens to you. You grow. Together.
When you partner up, you power up.
This is how it works

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!
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 3-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.
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.
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.
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.
