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 the world over, 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.
On this site, you can become a partner with the Institute by establishing a shiur in your neighborhood under our guidance, or we can help you find a partner in learning suitable to your level. You can also commemorate your loved ones and make a contribution to help increase Torah learning throughout the world.
Moreover, you can find out more about the Ohr Olam edition of the Mishnah Berurah, a revolutionary project that explicates the Mishnah Berurah and Beiur Halachah with unprecedented clarity and precision, featuring readable translation and clear elucidation of the Shulchan Aruch and Mishnah Berurah in order to open the intricate world of practical Halachah before all sectors of the Jewish people. Our hope is to instill the daily study of Halachah in its deepest sense amongst students young and old throughout the world, regardless of their background.
