Opportunity and responsibility are two key elements of Ohr Yisrael's philosophy. We encourage our students to take advantage of the many opportunities for growth as a ben Torah. At the same time, we emphasize the responsibility of each talmid to uphold Torah principles and help others in need.

Basketball League   

Basketball Team 

After a strong appearance in last years BBYO championship, a number of Yeshiva students have once again joined the league. They have arranged their games to avoid conflict with the Yeshiva schedule. Mr. Etan Varon gave direction to
the team in this week's 45-40 win.



This week, students had an opportunity to help with the mitzvah of comforting a mourner. 

Rabbi Naftali Glazer, who was visiting from Israel, became a mourner, requiring minyanim for Shachris and Mincha this week.

Students from the Yeshiva were eager to help, and learned much from listening to the esteemed rabbi speak about his family and experiences in Israel.
