How would one go about finding a rabbi/rav with whom to have a chavrusa if one is picky and has specific needs -- i.e., for someone with particular qualities, or who is highly learned in a niche area? Assume one is not in a yeshiva or seminary, and one does not want to work with the rabbi of one's community/shul. Obviously, asking around--i.e., asking that very rabbi--would be a good way to start. But is there any way to go about finding a chavrusa who meets specific requirements?

    If you don't mind over the phone learning, try jnet.org they will try to meet your requirements. – Yishai Aug 24 '16 at 21:07

    Asking around with friends and rabbis does seem to be the only universally applicable advice. Different learning institutions might have localized services available (sign up sheets, etc.) – Double AA Aug 25 '16 at 2:30
  • @mevaqesh What? It's a request for practical advice. – SAH Aug 25 '16 at 14:50

    You may ask me about what you are looking for specifically, and I can tell you if I know someone that can help. :) davidariel25@gmail.com I have helped a couple people here before BH. :) – David Kenner Nov 13 '16 at 4:09
