About Us

Yeshiva Ohr Elchonon Chabad was established in 1977 under the auspices of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson zt”l. We have always ascribed to establishing the yeshiva to act as a  Migdal Ohr, a tower of light to its surroundings. 


With every flicker of our fiber and every flame of our being, our goal is to illuminate our Bochurim by the light of Torah as it is explained by Chassidus to become their own Migdal Ohr, a beacon of light to others.
