Description: 

Ohr Haemet Institute (OHI) is a college preparatory high school and community synagogue founded in 1994 to reach out to a segment of the Jewish community interested in a quality secular education for girls, rooted in Jewish culture. OHI teaches both Judaic and general studies; it also offers ESL programs, extracurricular and community service opportunities. The school serves three distinct groups of girls: recent immigrants from Iran; first generation Persian girls; and non-Persian girls who attend the school for its unique qualities.
