TORCH-D on Shamash

TORCH-D is an email discussion list for Jewish homeschoolers who want to provide their children with a Torah-centered education.  It is the most long-standing list I have encountered, with posts going back more than a decade.  The list includes families with homeschooled children who are grown, and as such provides a wonderful resource from very experienced homeschooling families.  It is a place where homeschooling techniques, resources, activities, etc., can be discussed from a religious (Jewish) perspective.  Currently hosted by Shamash,

"Shamash: The Jewish Network, strives to be the highest quality central point of Jewish information and discussion on the Internet. Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art Internet tools to Jewish organizations and individuals who maintain discussion forums for the benefit of the Jewish community."

To subscribe to the list, send an email to with subscribe torch-d [your full name] in the body.

A note.  Some families have had difficulties subscribing to this list in the past.  If you are having trouble, you can try emailing Shamash for help, but don't give up.  Its a great list to be a part of.
