Eitz Chaim Schools

Having served the Toronto community for over 100 years, Yeshivas Eitz Chaim understands that the path to greatness as an adult starts with a strong foundation – or in Eitz Chaim parlance – with strong and healthy roots. As such, the goal of our school is ensure that each and every Rebbe, Morah, teacher, and staff member is eminently qualified to help bring out the tremendous potential latent in each child. Be it in limudei kodesh or in general studies, we provide a strong foundation for each child to succeed in all areas.

We work together with parents to develop and nurture Middos Tovos, Ahavas Yisroel, and confidence in every child so that he or she may grow up and flourish as a learned and respected member of the community, and among Klal Yisroel as a whole.

Bnei Akiva Schools of Toronto

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.
