Ohr Naava Women's Torah Center is open every evening from 7-10pm
at 2201 East 23rd Street (corner of Avenue V) in Brooklyn, New York.
Programs are offered at no charge — ABSOLUTELY FREE.
Ohr Naava is a unique program designed for women ages 17 through 120 who are interested in furthering their Torah experience. The program, under the leadership of Rabbi Zachariah Wallerstein, started out as a Wednesday evening class in a small classroom known as "Chabura." It brought together girls who had just returned from studying in Israel, college students who needed a weekly moment of inspiration, and most of all Jews of different backgrounds with one common goal – to grow and change. The class continued to grow and so did the walls of Ohr Naava. In the summer of 2004 Ohr Naava opened its doors to provide a nightly evening program, absolutely free of charge.
The signature of Ohr Naava is to provide a multitude of programs, absolutely free of charge,
for women wishing to make the time to grow, change and further their Torah knowledge.
It was founded in loving memory of Naava Katlowitz, a woman who was a paradigm of growth.
Our program takes place nightly and generally includes two Torah classes and one link each night. Some of the Torah class topics include Tefilla, Bitachon, Torah Psychology, Parsha and YOU, and more. Some of the Links include Yoga, Karate, Dance, Aerobics and Art.
Thursday nights are specially designed for chessed – challah baking, cooking and various functions which help the community.
Our incredible staff of lecturers includes Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein, Rabbi Label Lam, Rabbi Gil Freiman, Rabbi Mordechai Miller, Miss Chevi Garfinkel, and Mrs. Malky Wallerstein.
Guest speakers such as Rav Menachem Nissel, Rav Hanoch Teller, Rabbi Jonathan Rietti, Rabbi Mordechai Becher, Mrs. Shlomtzie Weiss, Rabbi Yerachmiel Milstein, and Mrs. Chaya Reich visit Ohr Naava regularly.
Special events take place at Ohr Naava throughout the year.
Our schedule of classes changes monthly and can be viewed on our monthly schedule tab. You can also contact us regarding adding you to our email list, which will update you about classes and special events taking place.
Feel free to come regularly, or just stop by – we’d love to meet you.
