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 situated in the Judean hills, about 9 miles from Jerusalem off the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway.
Its goal is to emphasize the primacy of high level Torah study and love of Klal Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael. The primary objective of Yeshivat Ohr Yerushalayim is to provide its students with a highly intensive learning atmosphere in combination with very personalized instruction. The emphasis of study at Ohr Yerushalayim is on the acquisition of the requisite learning skills for proper independent study.
A deep-rooted love of Eretz Yisrael is developed via a number of tiyulim, Shabbatonim and field trips throughout the country, plus contact with the moshav adjoining the yeshiva.
