ORGANIZATION 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.

GRANT PURPOSE

The Social Hall and Shul Additions expands the synagogue and social hall space on the first floor and create an outdoor patio for school use on the second floor.
