Chavrusa

Chavrusa, also spelled chavruta or havruta, is a traditional rabbinic approach to Talmudic study in which a small group of students analyze, discuss, and debate a shared text. It is a primary learning method in yeshivas and kollels, where students often engage regular study partners of similar knowledge and ability, and is also practiced by those outside the yeshiva setting, in work, home, and vacation settings. The traditional phrase is to learn b'chavrusa ; the word has come by metonymy to refer to the study partner as an individual, though it would more logically describe the pair.
