More than 3,000 men and women are expected to join the Orthodox Union (OU)‘s third annual Torah Yerushalayim, featuring leading rabbinic scholars, educators, and Jewish communal leaders on Sunday, September 12, 2021.
This year, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be held virtually.
It will consist of five keynote addresses, 16 classes, and two panels covering topics ranging from the upcoming Shmita year, Yom Kippur, teshuva and Sukkot. Another key topic to address will be parenting during this unique pandemic age.

Speakers such as Israel’s Chief Rabbi David Lau, Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Rimon, Rabbi Herschel Schachter, Sivan Rahav Meir, Dina Schoonmaker, Shani Taragin, and others will feature, as well as a musical performance by Rabbi Shlomo Katz.

“The days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur provide a unique opportunity for introspection and connecting to Hashem. The goal of Torah Yerushalayim is to uplift your Aseret Yemei Teshuva (Ten Days of Repentance) and Yom Kippur, and we have assembled leading scholars and educators to create a dynamic virtual worldwide event that offers something for everyone,” said OU Israel executive director Rabbi Avi Berman.
“As we enter the Shmita year, this year’s program will feature a learning track focusing on the unique Halachot that will guide us through this year and even impact next year as well. We are excited to offer so many remarkable and incredibly inspiring shiurim to Jews around the world who have been unable to come to Israel and learn with these rabbis and educators in person due to the pandemic.”
