OU Israel Center
The Seymor J. Abrams Jerusalem World Center, headquarters of OU Israel, is a hub of Torah study, Jewish culture and spiritual growth. The center provides a warm, embracing environment, spiritual inspiration, and a familiar social framework for Anglo olim.
The center’s mission is to strengthen the Jew’s connection to his heritage, his land and his people. The center is committed to aliyah, and through both Torah and social programs encourages olim and facilitates absorption.
Torah classes at the center aim to teach, inspire and uplift. A wide range of classes including Tanach, Halacha, Jewish philosophy and more are available for men and women. Committed to quality Jewish education, the center also hosts the Avrom Silver Jerusalem College for Adults, headed by Rabbi Sholom Gold.

Trips and Tiyulim
Tiyulim at the Israel Center include a unique balance of Torah, love for the land of Israel, and leisure. The goal of each trip is to increase knowledge of the land and strengthen love of Eretz Yisrael.
Events and lectures at the Israel Center provide a social venue and generate moral support for English speaking Jews living in Israel. From lectures, to luncheons to book reviews, the center’s events offer olim a chance to connect with other olim, meet old and new friends and enrich their lives as olim.
