Project Zug is Mechon Hadar’s online learning platform. Participants choose a course that interests them, and receive the materials online, to learn on their own schedule. Zug means “pair” in Hebrew, because Jewish learning is traditionally done in a havruta – a two-person partnership. All Project Zug participants have a partner, either in person or online, with whom to navigate the course: to question, to debate, and to build a relationship.
