Project Zug Learning Initiative - Fall 2020


Shearith Israel and Hadar are embarking this fall on a partnership through Hadar’s Project Zug to empower (Havruta) partnered learning in our community.

All are encouraged to participate, from seasoned Judaic scholars to first-time havruta-study participants. You may indicate your level of experience and comfort, from beginner to advanced, and will be matched with a study partner accordingly. 

What is Project Zug and their role in this partnership?

Project Zug is an online platform for Jewish Text learning in pairs. Hadar’s world class faculty has curated sources for numerous different topics, providing multi-media source material and insightful guidance.

Once paired with a havruta partner for the learning, you will make arrangements to learn together virtually or in a safe, socially-distanced manner to engage in the self-led text studies and discussions. 

how it works:


Tell us about yourself and what you are looking for in a learning partner.


Study with an inspiring teacher. Delve deeply into a familiar topic or explore something totally new. 


Connect with your partner "face-to-face" through your preferred video-chat technology. 


Use our online platform to explore your topic through texts, guiding questions and short videos. The complete list of available courses is here.

What’s your role once matched?

  • By signing up, you are committing to your partner to learn the material in the course. 
  • You will be responsible for setting a schedule of learning with your partner, and being present for the learning and discussion. You’ll be able to fully take advantage of the resources Shearith Israel and Project Zug offer to help you along the way.

We believe this is going to be a great way to grow our knowledge, and we hope that we are able to recruit a large number of partnerships. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to
