"Ohr Somayach Monsey is a place to reconnect to your Jewish roots through authentic Torah study. It is unique because it allows students with a secular background to incorporate Torah study into their lives in a short amount of time through an engaging, condensed curriculum."

"Ohr Somayach is unique for its personalized attention to each student. The yeshivas in Eretz Yisroel usually are more crowded with less staff available. At Ohr Somayach, it is very easy to get a lot of face time with different rabbis."

"To me, Ohr Somayach is a place where baalei teshuva can come to learn serious deep Torah. It is a true makom Torah with no agenda other than providing students with the skills to access the Torah’s wisdom.”

"The yeshiva has a great reputation for developing solid guys who have become pillars of their communities. It is the next step for a serious, motivated bal teshuva."
