Abstract: Let $ p(n)$ denote the number of partitions of a positive number $ n$, let $ \ell \in \{5,7,11\}$ and let $ \delta_\ell$ be the least non-negative residue of $ 24^{-1}$ modulo $ \ell$. In this paper we prove congruences modulo $ \ell$ between $ \frac{p(\ell n+ \delta_\ell)}{\ell}$ and ratios of central critical values of $ L$-functions associated to twists of certain integer weight newforms. In 1999, Guo and Ono proved analogous results for $ 13\leq \ell \leq 31$.
