Sh'or Yoshuv Rabbinical College says

Nestled in the scenic coastal suburbs of Nassau County, Yeshiva Sh'or Yoshuv provides a venue for the aspiring ben Torah seeking to forge a formidable lifelong kesher with rebbeim in an all-encompassing environment of aliya b'torah. The Yeshiva's pleasant serene setting, removed from the distractions of the big city, provide the ideal conditions for growth while acquiring a clear approach to learning. The energy that pervades the walls of Sh'or Yoshuv is nothing less than awe-inspiring. The Sh'or Yoshuv revolution began in 1967 in Far Rockaway spearheaded by none other than the illustrious visionary Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld, zt''l. He conceived an idea to create a place of Torah study which would bring together under one common roof Jews from all walks of life, regardless of background. His goal was to make every Jew aware of his innate potential, and to have that potential actualized. He would often quote our Sages: "Ein davar ha'omeid bifnei haratzon," that is, "Nothing can stand in the way of will." Sh'or Yoshuv continues to stand by its founding mission to develop the potential in each and every student. Following its model approach to scholarship, Sh'or Yoshuv imbues its students with the joy and warmth of Torah learning and living. Our graduates go on to take their places in communities throughout the world as Torah-committed educators, professionals, businessmen and lay leaders .
