Logo for Bnei Akiva

The mission of Yeshivat Or Chaim and Ulpanat Orot is to inculcate within our students an appreciation for and a commitment to Torah observances and values. Yeshivat Or Chaim (founded in 1973) and Ulpanat Orot (founded in 1975) were established in Toronto with several specific goals in mind: To create a Yeshiva environment where religiously committed Jewish boys and girls will be able to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and religiously in a vibrant Jewish setting; to offer a dual curriculum of Jewish and general studies that will arm our students with the methodological tools needed to become self-reliant in classical Jewish texts and give them a broad-based secular grounding in the classical world disciplines; to deepen and strengthen the centrality of Eretz Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael as a fundamental element of our Torah beliefs and, to this end, stress the importance of Lashon Hakodesh as a manner of achieving these goals; and to encourage and fervently support the notion of our students continuing their Judaic studies at Yeshivot in Eretz Yisrael and in other institutions of higher Jewish learning.
