Nestled in the scenic coastal suburbs of Nassau County, Yeshiva Sh’or Yoshuv provides
a venue for the aspiring ben Torah seeking to forge a formidable lifelong kesher
with rebbeim in an all-encompassing environment of aliya b’torah. The Yeshiva’s
pleasant serene setting, removed from the distractions of the big city, provide
the ideal conditions for growth while acquiring a clear approach to learning. The
energy that pervades the walls of Sh’or Yoshuv is nothing less than awe-inspiring.
The Sh’or Yoshuv revolution began in 1967 in Far Rockaway spearheaded by none other
than the illustrious visionary Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld, zt’’l. He conceived an idea
to create a place of Torah study which would bring together under one common roof
Jews from all walks of life, regardless of background.
His goal was to make every
Jew aware of his innate potential, and to have that potential actualized. He would
often quote our Sages: “Ein davar ha’omeid bifnei haratzon,” that is, “Nothing can
stand in the way of will.” Sh’or Yoshuv continues to stand by its founding mission
to develop the potential in each and every student. Following its model approach
to scholarship, Sh’or Yoshuv imbues its students with the joy and warmth of Torah
learning and living. Our graduates go on to take their places in communities throughout
the world as Torah-committed educators, professionals, businessmen and lay leaders.
