Why is the OS jInternship such a smashing success?

It’s because OS jInternship is an Ivy League program. It’s a program designed specifically for the accomplished and intellectual intelligent University student /graduate. Not only will you obtain a high quality, career launching internship, but you’ll be able to explore the fundamentals of Judaism in an intellectual environment. Ohr Somayach is proud of its highly qualified teaching staff. A number of the rabbis you’ll be studying with have doctorates in fields as diverse as philosophy, linguistics and law and have been members of the faculties of prominent universities.

But, that’s not all. After a rigorous working and learning schedule you’ll have a chance to relax and let off steam. Nobody parties like OS jInterns. Among our many extracurricular activities is the Mentor’s Mission (Winter & Summer sessions), where you’ll spend 5 days being wined and dined, touring the country and learning from some of the most successful businessman you may ever meet. It’s your chance to network with the best.
