Our Mission

Yeshiva Ohr Zechariah’s mission is to contribute to both the intellectual and behavioral growth of the student. There is a strong focus on both the student’s understanding of Talmudic Studies; and on developing the student’s ethical character. 

The Yeshiva’s goal is to educate the students and help them succeed to their fullest potential. For the gifted students, this means helping them become genuine Torah scholars capable of joining the community of scholars who are solely devoted to Torah learning. For those who are not so inclined, the program equips them with the requisite logical and analytical skills for lifelong independent learning, with an appreciation of the singular importance of Talmudic study. 

Another component of the mission is to provide the training needed to live a Torah life. To this end the Yeshiva is dedicated to break the mold of superficiality in all levels of life. A student who studies Talmud in depth will also have an in depth understanding of what life is about. Graduates will be prepared to continue their education in the finest graduate programs both here and abroad.
