Welcome to OJ!

Ohr Yerushalayim is a Beit Midrash program for students from the United States and other Anglo-Saxon countries who wish to spend a year or more of intensive study in Israel. It is located on Moshav Beit Meir, a religious moshav (cooperative settlement) situated in the Judean hills, some 9 miles from Jerusalem off the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway. The moshav is adjacent to a nature reserve, in an extremely scenic locale, which enjoys a panoramic view of the coastal plain and foothills, stretching all the way to the Mediterranean.

Yeshivat Ohr Yerushalayim is unaffiliated politically or philosophically with any political parties or formal religious movements. Its goal is to emphasize the primacy of high level Torah study and love of Klal Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.
