From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ohr Somayach in South Africa is an affiliate of Ohr Somayach, Jerusalem, a network of Haredi yeshivas and Synagogues. Like its parent institution, it focuses on educating baal teshuvas ("returnees" to Orthodox Judaism). It has three branches in South Africa - Johannesburg, Sandton (north of Johannesburg) and Cape Town. In Johannesburg, Ohr Somayach operates a full time Yeshiva, headed by Rabbi Yechezkel Auerbach - with its Bet Midrash established in 1990, and its Kollel, "Toras Chaim", in 1996; it also operates a Midrasha. It runs a Bet Midrash in Cape Town, under Rabbi D. Brett.
