The Ted and George Manson University Student Program

For Men: Our Chaverim Program

Staffed by our Rosh Beit Midrash, Sgan and avreichim, our Beit Midrash in Yeshivat Or Chaim (159 Almore Ave.) hosts Chaverim – male university students – from 9:00 AM to Noon on Sundays, 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM from Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM on Fridays.

We want to assist your learning in any way possible – answering your questions, offering guidance in your learning, and helping you find chavrutot (learning partners). The Beit Midrash is learning Kiddushin this year, but Chaverim are free to learn any Torah topic.

We offer weekly shiurim (classes) for Chaverim on Sundays, Mondays and Fridays, in partnership with JLIC and Bnei Akiva Schools.  In addition, we are glad to create new shiurim for Chaverim upon request; just let us know! A full study program, 10 AM to Noon, Monday through Thursday, is also available in our free Seder Boker program with Rabbi Moshe Yeres.

Aside from the regular learning, we hold periodic Yarchei Kallah and breakfast seminars throughout the year, often on statutory holidays, to discuss special topics of interest. These topics are open to the parents of Chaverim as well, and take place in shuls around the city.

We offer stipends for Chaverim who learn with us for six morning hours in a given week: between 9:00 AM and Noon on Sundays, between 8:30 AM and 12:30 PM Monday through Thursday, and between 8:30 AM and 11:30 AM on Fridays. Note: Chaverim must be attending a GTA university undergraduate program in order to qualify for the stipend.

As a bonus, our Chaverim also serve as role models for the younger students of Yeshivat Or Chaim, who are often in the Beit Midrash as part of their studies. Our Chaverim program is in its sixth year, and we are thrilled to be able to make such an impact on the community!
