Hevruta Learning Circles

In Hebrew, a hevruta is two or more people who learn together. Right now, there are a lot of you at home who perhaps have time to fill and something you always wanted to learn. We are creating a kind of virtual bulletin board here - I can Teach/ and I would like to learn. Anything from math, to knitting, to challah baking, to a conversation in another language, to a book group, to reading to a child, to a knitting circle, to any other interest you may have or seek.  This ONLINE FORM has more details and will help us connect people.
