Welcome to Or Chadash Institutions

Since 1995, the Or Chadash Talmud Torah in Jerusalem has been doing precisely what its name – literally, “New Light” – implies: illuminating the lives of hundreds of students who would otherwise be permanently plunged into spiritual darkness.

Or Chadash was established to provide a quality Torah education for children from underprivileged homes, as well as food, clothing and financial assistance for their families. Over 700 students are currently enrolled in the school, most of whom come from disadvantaged or troubled backgrounds.  At Or Chadash they receive a high-level education as well as the kind of care and support system that they so desperately need to grow and succeed. The educational formula of Or Chadash, which combines quality education with genuine and professional care for the students’ emotional and material needs, has drawn the fervent support of numerous personalities in Israel and around the world who have heaped praise upon the institution’s devoted and professional work .

''It is an honor to be associated with this organization. The Rabbis are fantastic and doing a wonderful job, they achieve tremendous things!''

''An institution par excellence, with a well-kept building and beautiful premises. I am impressed by the teachers, the students and the atmosphere of this school...''

Mr. Saul Tawil

Honorary President of the institutions  in USA

Or Chadash is a wonderful institution! The building is physically beautiful but more than that, the faces on the children are the most beautiful. It must because the Torah they are learning is beautiful'. Their hearts are happy; they are  eager to come to learn and it all shows in their faces.'
