Over the years, Ohr Chaya noticed the growing demand for a program for young women. Aside from their religious studies, the young women needed training in various subjects that will prepare them to productively integrate into Israeli society as adults.

With the help of a caring professional team, we empower our students, and help them to discover their inner strength and become a contributing and constructive element of Israeli society.

There are far more applicants then we can possibly accommodate in our boarding school.

Moishy.

The 28th of Kislev 5767, the 4th night of Chanuka, was a Tuesday. A group of eight Tmimim left the Yeshiva in Kiryat Gat to do Mivtzoim at the military post near Eilat.

At the Tzechor – Eilat intersection their car swerved off the road and turned over into a ditch on the side of the road. This terrible accident claimed the lives of three precious Tmimim – our Moishe was one of them. He was just 16 years and seven months old.

Our beloved Moishe had a regal disposition and charm. Blessed with a unique combination of a sharp mind and a passion for refining his character, Moishe was a beautiful boy, inside and and out.

The new building, Beit Moshe, is named after him.

Beit Moshe.

Several years ago, the consistently growing demand has led us to purchase the building in which the boarding is situated, and now we are looking at the future next stage: renovating the building, adding three floors.

Expanding the building will double the existing capacity and enable us to simultaneously accommodate more young women participating in the program.

The new

building.

A place in your heart.

The loss of a loved one, and especially a child, is immensely painful, unimaginable. 

‪The Rebbe taught us a new way to remember our loved ones who have passed on. ‬The Rebbe taught us to sanctify life; to increase in spreading light in the world, adding in activities that emphasize the life that was lived and the connection we still have. 

In the spirit of this teaching, we are choosing to increase in good deeds in their merit. 

Ohr Chaya is in the process of expanding the building where the dormitory resides and it touches me deeply to introduce our new project , A place in your heart, Cheder Balev.

This is a huge undertaking that aims to establish more and more homes in Yisrael inspired by the Rebbe to spread light.

I invite you to keep the memory alive and dedicate a room in the name of your loved one. This space will fulfill the Rebbe’s vision, in empowering the Neshama’s connection to further illuminate our world. 

Each room will bare a plaque with the story, thereby serving as a living Ner Zikaron.
