Jewish Learning on an Oil Rig

Guillermo works in the oil and gas industry, a career path that placed him smack dab in the middle of rural Canada. If the location wasn’t a big enough challenge, Guillermo’s busy schedule made it impossible for him to attend synagogue or be a part of a Jewish community.

Or so he thought. When his girlfriend sent him to, he found just what he was looking for.

“I work in a remote area,” Guillermo told us, “so by frequently visiting, I can still feel connected to the Jewish tradition, and keep up with the Jewish calendar.”

Guillermo started by by reading the weekly Torah portion commentaries on MyJewishLearning and studying the Jewish holidays. Soon he discovered the depths of what MyJewishLearning had to offer, exploring the Jewish history section and beefing up his knowledge of Jewish culture and rituals.
