FAQ

What is Play4Partners?
Play4Partners is a 3 on 3 basketball tournament designed to encourage its participants to raise money for a great cause while having a great time in a competitive and fun environment.
What is Partners in Torah?
Partners in Torah seeks to unify the Jewish people through the power of Jewish learning. Jews across the spectrum of affiliation and observance seeking to deepen their knowledge of Jewish texts, philosophy and culture are paired up with a knowledgeable mentor whose aim is to share his or her time and knowledge. The 30-45 minute weekly study sessions which, for the most part, take place over the phone, most often lead to lasting friendships which endure for many years – long beyond the time they may chose to discontinue their actual study connection.
What is American Friends of Sderot?
Sderot is a town of 25,000 residents located in Southern Israel just one mile from the Gaza border. It is under constant threat of terror attacks by Kassam rockets as well as infiltration tunnels, as seen in the last war. The centerpiece of the town is the Hesder Yeshiva of Sderot, which provides communal leadership, social outreach and religious services so desperately needed in the community.

American Friends of Sderot runs programs and events throughout the year to raise awareness and much needed funds for the Hesder Yeshiva and the community of Sderot including: Walk the Boardwalk for Sderot, Sukkos Concert, Swish for Sderot Yeshiva Day School Basketball Tournament and Play4Partners Tournament.
