What do an 85-year-old Israeli, a 10-year-old homeschooler, and a 33-year-old Polish Jew have in common? They all study at WebYeshiva.org, the world’s first fully interactive online Torah study program. The site, founded in 2007, brings Jews from across the world together to study Torah in real-time using video-conferencing technology.
Students enrolled at the site can participate in interactive classroom sessions via webcam and direct questions to rabbis in every time zone. The yeshiva/midrasha (women’s seminary) offers courses at various levels, covering topics ranging from traditional Gemara to Jewish culture, Zionism, and Jewish weddings."
