At Ohr Somayach until 1975
Torah, built on a backbone of lasting relationships, keeps this alumnus coming back for more. Nearly 40 years ago, Mr. Hochheiser opened the doors to Ohr Somayach. He didn’t realize the impact that light would have on him. The Beis Midrash became his home “base”. He left the Yeshiva after a year of growth, but the yeshiva didn’t leave him. All the connections he made — in learning and in life — stayed with him, and today, his entire family enjoys from the Shabbatons, shiurim, and simchas of all his friends at Ohr Somayach.
This past June, Mr. Hochheiser decided to return to the source and learn at Ohr Somayach for Elul session. With his wife’s loving support, he made the flight once again. He greeted Rosh Hashana 5772 with a sugya in hand, in Jerusalem, amongst old friends and new.
