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."

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.
