Mishnah Berurah Lectures Throughout the World





לע"נ ידידינו הבלתי נשכח מרדכי בן אליהו יחיאל מירון

לע"נ עובדיה חיים בן רפאל הורן ז"ל

לע"נ מרת חוה חיה שרה ע"ה ב"ר נטע אריה ז"ל נלב"ע ה' סיון תשע"ו


Our Institute

Whether it is baalei teshuva, yeshiva graduates or simply those seeking to cover as much ground in as little time as possible, there is a tremendous thirst for advanced Torah texts in the English language. To meet this ever-increasing demand, Rabbi Asher Zelig Eisenberg, of blessed memory, founded the Ohr Olam Institute. His primary goal was to bring about Zikui HaRabbim by encouraging the learning of contemporary Jewish Law and other texts and making them available to Jews of all streams of life. Sadly, Rabbi Eisenberg passed away in the midst of establishing his enterprise, and we see it as our obligation and responsibility to turn his dream into reality. We have therefore assembled a team of accomplished Torah scholars, skilled editors and talented graphic artists to produce volumes that are as pleasing to the eye and easy to read as they are accurate in conveying the eternal truth of the Torah. Each volume in the Ohr Olam library is presented in a clear, easy-to-understand style, yet preserves the depth and unique character of the original Hebrew. 

The Ohr Olam Institute is an innovative new Torah project committed to disseminating the eternal wisdom of the Torah classics to the English speaking public to ensure that no Jew is estranged from Torah. Our goal is to bring the timeless words of our heritage into the Twenty-First Century in a language that everyone can understand without losing the depth or passion of the original Hebrew.
