Yeshiva Ohr Elchonon Chabad - West Coast

The original goal of Mesivta Beth Medrosh Elyon – West Coast Talmudical Seminary was to provide facilities for intensive Torah education as well as Orthodox rabbinical training on the West Coast for which purpose it conducts a graduate Talmudical division on a college level.
With the transformation into Yeshiva Ohr Elchonon Chabad, this goal remains intact.
In addition to molding students into conscientious Torah observing Jews and Torah scholars, the Yeshiva, in line with Chabad philosophy, also has the goal of concerning itself with serving the spiritual needs of world Jewry, supplying even the most remote communities with their needs for religious functionaries and communal workers, and bringing the entire Jewish world the warmth of Chassidism.
Yeshiva students and graduates, as the scholarly elite of the community, are particularly well equipped and motivated to bring their superior knowledge, commitment, and enthusiasm to others less privileged.
