The world-renowned Ohr Naava Women's Torah Center will begin to operate in Israel with Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi, to assist young women who are in trouble.

The group reaches out to girls and women, bringing them closer to Judaism. It specializes in assisting girls whose life has deteriorated in various ways and who have suffered from abusive relationships, drugs and other problems.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein, Founder and Director of Ohr Naava, has become an icon in the Jewish world, thanks to his fearless vision, deep conviction, and unfailing warmth.

Ohr Naava Women's Torah Center has grown from a humble weekly study group to a world-renowned, nightly font of inspiration, featuring round-the-clock Torah classes, entertaining activities, exciting social events, and engaging workshops from a stellar staff of educators—all free of charge. The continually buzzing center has filled a gaping need in the Jewish community.

Regardless of age or background, Ohr Naava’s dedicated team provides for the spiritual, emotional—and even physical—needs of thousands of grateful women and girls.

Arutz Sheva spoke to Ohr Naava organizers and to girls who have enjoyed its activities.
