Our Philosophy

An Ohr Torah Cincinnati learning experience is like no other.  Great attention is given to maintaining the Kedushas Hamakom (holiness of space) within the classroom and the Kedushas Ha’Zaman (holiness of time) of the children’s school day, thus communicating to the children that Chinuch (education) is incredibly important. Children come to treasure their daily experiences as constant opportunities to elevate their conduct and thus build their Kesher (connection) to Hakadosh Baruch Hu. This connection lays the groundwork for true and lasting Simchas Ha’Chaim (happiness in life), commitment to Yiddishkeit, and diligence in one’s pursuits.

We focus on fostering and infusing a love for Torah and Mitzvos in all that we do and an appreciation and awe for learning across all subject areas and throughout every aspect of your child’s day. Specifically, we provide a carefully planned, stimulating, and structured learning environment along with an integrated, robust curriculum across and within Judaic and General Studies.  Our approach to learning builds independence in students and honors the innate yearning for discovery inherent in all people. The daily experiences facilitated at Ohr Torah Cincinnati help children to develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, and ideals essential for a lifetime of creative thinking, effective problem-solving, strong relationship-building, collaborative interpersonal skills, advanced learning, growth and leadership.  These, in turn, will enable our students to live purpose-driven, fulfilling lives and make meaningful contributions to the World and Klal Yisroel.

Derech Eretz (positive character traits and personal conduct) in our Ohr Torah Cincinnati classrooms is the foundation for everything we do, and each child will learn many important life skills as we promote personal self-esteem, respect, responsibility, academic excellence, and Ahavas Yisroel (Love of one’s fellow Jew). Each child will feel empowered in the Ohr Torah Cincinnati classroom and learn how rewarding it feels to be challenged and accomplish things on their own!

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower and inspire Jewish children to live fulfilling and joyful lives and to develop into diligent, competent life-long learners and leaders who are deeply devoted to Yiddishkeit and who make positive and meaningful contributions to the World and Klal Yisrael.

Inspiration

Inspiring, multi-sensory, impressionistic, “big picture” lessons tackle complex concepts in concrete and integrative ways that are both accessible, even to our youngest learners at age 3 and intriguing to our oldest learners in upper elementary. These special and highly memorable lessons build students’ Emunah and help them to deeply internalize Hashem’s love for them along with a personal sense of purpose to their existence.

Methodologies

Methodologies build internal motivation for learning and a laser-focus on the goal of constant improvement in learning and character development. Learning is often multi-sensory and hands-on and is crafted to stretch students’ knowledge and research skills, build sustained focus and independence, and provide opportunities for discovery.

Penina Heigh
“The OTC teaching has a handle on the child’s understanding of the material and guiding the children in a stress-free way to absorb the most possible from their education. It makes the education relevant to the child so that the child is interested and feels enriched by the material that they are taught.“
Leila Kibel
“I remember feeling ownership and pride of my work as a child and an adolescent. I did always strive for excellence. I have taught for many years and had always been disappointed in the decline in the responsibility of today’s youth. Being a parent and a teacher at OTC has restored my faith in education.“
