The Ohr Chadash Institutions provide a comprehensive education with Torah studies and secular knowledge. We aim to equip our students with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. We firmly believe in laying a solid foundation that empowers our students to excel, regardless of the path they choose to pursue.
We believe in the potential of current and future generations and are dedicated to helping them reach their potential. We are devoted to fostering their growth and heritage.
At Or Chadash, we wholeheartedly embrace the responsibility of shaping the lives of our students and are dedicated to preparing them for a future filled with success and meaningful contributions to their community and the world at large.
An International Team of Educators and Students from all over the world
Our Institutions host an international team of educators and welcome students from all over the world. Our academic team is composed of professionals from Israel, Europe, and America, allowing them to easily connect with similar backgrounds.
Many of our students are immigrants from France and America, and we are dedicated to supporting their academic, linguistic, and social integration. To ensure a smooth transition, we provide private teachers to help them reach the same learning level as their Israeli peers. Having undergone similar experiences, these teachers are well-equipped to guide and facilitate the student's integration into Israeli society.
We promote a supportive and encouraging environment, as well as an inclusive atmosphere, where students can thrive academically and socially
Integration of Olim Chadashim
We deeply value each student. We give individualized support and guidance to all students who need it, with particular emphasis on those who have recently immigrated to Israel. The integration of Olim Chadashim is one of the key aspects of our educational mission.
A significant portion of our student body consists of families who have made Aliyah from America and France. To ensure a seamless and successful integration into Israeli society, we have dedicated private teachers who possess a deep understanding of our students' cultural backgrounds. These teachers work closely with the students regularly, providing personalized assistance tailored to their specific needs.
We are devoted to creating an environment where all students feel welcomed, supported, and empowered to thrive academically, linguistically, and socially. By offering specialized attention and fostering cultural understanding, we pave the way for our students to embrace their new lives in Israel seamlessly and forge meaningful connections within the local community.
Illuminating also the Lives of Hundreds of Children from Underprivileged Homes
For over two decades, The Or CHadash Institutions have also been dedicated to making a difference in the lives of underprivileged children. True to its name, "New Light," our organization has been a beacon of hope, offering these children a transformative education along with vital support such as meals, clothing, scholarships, and financial assistance for their families. Since 1995, we have been committed to bringing positive change to the lives of hundreds of children, empowering them to embrace a brighter future.
We encourage our students to pursue their chosen fields, be it in religious or secular domains, and we nurture an environment to support them. We take great pride in witnessing our alumni emerge as integral and successful contributors to Israeli society, excelling in a wide range of religious professions, such as teaching, rabbinical judging, ritual slaughter (shochetim), scribing, and Talmudic scholarship. Additionally, we are equally proud to see them flourish in secular careers, including law, judiciary, business, and holding esteemed positions within the Israel Defense Forces.
Upon graduation, our students continue their educational journey with the following breakdown: • 70% enroll in the best Yeshiva high schools to further their religious studies. • 30% choose vocational and secular high schools to explore diverse professional opportunities within their chosen fields.
A Growing Campus
Our campus has been growing steadily to meet the needs of our community. We still have spaces available for dedication, which you can check out by clicking here: Campus Dedications.
We are also developing a second campus in Jerusalem that will accommodate 500 students.
Thank you for your support. We are expanding to ensure more students are equipped with the necessary tools to thrive according to our Traditions and to illuminate the world.
