Torah Anytime is an organization started by two brothers from Queens, New York, who saw a need for their friends and family to be able to watch lectures given in their community.
At Torah Anytime, they record Torah lectures given around the world and upload the footage to their website for the whole world to watch, free of charge. Since their founding, they have received more and more requests for lectures of Torah videos conducted by Jewish speakers and Rabbis, with the website growing steadily ever since.
Why do they do this? There are a number of reasons:
- Many people would like the opportunity to review a Torah experience, watching it a second or third time to give them a better understanding of it. At Torah Anytime, they give Jews around the world the opportunity to watch lectures they normally would have never been able to see in person.
- The sick and elderly often cannot leave their homes due to conditions beyond their control. Torah Anytime allows them to experience Torah lectures in the comfort and privacy of their homes.
- Sometimes people can’t make it to a Shiur because of other commitments (weddings, yahrzeits, meetings, family responsibilities, unexpected events and many other reasons). Torah Anytime can be an alternative for people with time constraints to see a Shiur at their preferred time and convenience.
- If someone doesn’t feel comfortable attending a Torah lecture given by an Orthodox Rabbi/Rebbetzin in a shul or yeshiva setting, they have the same opportunity to gain knowledge, inspiration, or guidance from Torah wisdom as everyone else.
- There are so many busy professionals with packed schedules who want to learn but simply don’t have the time to attend a class in person or to sit and study one on one. They afford them the opportunity to turn their car into a classroom or their train ride into a study hall. By filling their commute with Torah wisdom, the benefit is immeasurable.
Torah Anytime currently has more than 20,000 Torah videos of over 400 different speakers. They record and post up to 100 lectures per week, and receive close to 100,000 monthly visits from over 120 countries, and these statistics are growing rapidly as we speak. We’re proud to say that more than 3,500,000 hours of Torah is being learned every year through TorahAnytime.com!
They are committed to their beloved viewers/listeners to making a learning experience as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
