One of the reasons we started Beyond BT is because we felt that BTs needed more support and that we can provide some through this forum.
It has been a limited success given the limitations of an online community/forum and the limited available resources, but perhaps we can use today’s question to brainstorm how we can provide more support for BTs.
Here some common issues below and their obstacles.
Please suggest how perhaps we can overcome any of the mentioned obstacles.
Providing Classes of All Types for BTs.
Obstacles: Attendance is usually sparse.
Getting Mentors for BTs.
Obstacles: Good willing mentors are hard to find. There is no mechanism for BTs to request mentors. BTs are hesitant to request mentors.
Getting Rebbeim for BTs
Obstacles: Good BT-oriented Rebbeim are hard to find. Rebbeim are usually paid for their time through their shuls and there is no other normative structure to pay good Rebbeim for their time.
Providing Live Support Meetings for BTs
Obstacles: It does not seem that BTs want to get together to discuss their issues.
