Message from the Director

It is a privilege for me to be at the helm of Torah Umesorah. As North America's foremost presence in Torah education, our organization has been providing services and guidance in the field for nearly seven decades. Baruch Hashem, our services now extend to over 700 Torah schools and dozens of kiruv facilities across the continent – many of which were actually established by Torah Umesorah.

Needless to say, the achievements of Torah Umesorah are directly attributable to the talented individuals, past and present, who comprise the organization's professional family.
