General Information

  • Transfer Credits: As one of Ohr Somayach's instititutions, students who fulfill the Yeshiva's requirements will receive a college transcript from Ohr Somayach Tanenbaum College. These transcripts have been accepted by many leading universities. (A list of colleges will be provided upon request).
  • Costs: For tuition information please email Rabbi Nachi Brickman. Tuition includes all courses, trips, meals and dormitory facilities. Tuition does not include the group flight (which is arranged at a special reduced rate). Israeli insurance, which is mandatory for all students costs $1 a day and is not included in tuition. A limited number of scholarships are available.
  • Admission requirements: Admission to the program is highly selective and only those applicants with exemplary academic achievement and motivation are considered. Applicants must have some background in Jewish studies, and a personal interview is required in addition to the provision of suitable references. Submission of the application must be accompanied by the essay, a $25 non-refundable application fee, two current photographs and the medical form.
  • Facilities: The campus is located in the heart of Jerusalem, within walking distance of shopping and commercial districts, the Old City and the Western Wall, and the Hebrew University. Living in Israel is, in itself, an educational experience. The program enhances this experience with tours to various parts of the country, and Shabbatot with families representing the broad spectrum of religious life in Israel. Participants are encouraged to develop personal relationships with the staff of Rabbis and educators, who also open their homes to students on Shabbatot and Yomim Tovim. The campus includes the Beit Midrash, classrooms and seminar rooms. The library contains a vast collection of Torah classics, including facsimile editions of rare manuscripts.
We look forward to seeing you...
next year in JERUSALEM!
