The American Yeshiva in Israel

Yeshivas Torah Ore is a post high school Yeshiva for American students, located in Kiryas Mattersdorf, Yerushalayim. The Yeshiva was founded on the principal of creating an atmosphere of individualized growth in ruchnius, and developing an appreciation of Torah learning. Through a warm and personal approach, the Yeshiva seeks to imbue every student with the self-confidence and the desire needed to reach greatness in Torah and in the service of Hashem.

When one decides to attend Yeshivas Torah Ore (YTO), he is not only enrolling himself in a yeshiva, but he finds himself joining a family as well. The Torah Ore family's tradition and history has roots that are steeped in Torah and varmkiet. The name YTO is recognized across the globe as a true makom Torah.

Since its inception in the early 1960's, under the leadership of Maran HaGaon Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg, zt'l, YTO has a reputation of attracting students from around the world. These students are interested in immersing themselves in a serious Torah atmosphere, in Eretz Yisrael, away from the distractions of everyday life. The typical bochur is self-motivated and aspires to develop both his learning and analytical skills, as well as striving to reach new heights in avodas hakodesh. The Torah Ore bochur isn't satisfied with simply being personally impacted, but he also desires to share his passion for learning with others as well.
