Who we are

Ohrsom Student Australia

WHO ARE WE? 

Ohrsom Student was founded in South Africa over 10 years ago.

It’s aim? Simple! To engage with university students. We offer a framework which equips it’s participants with knowledge, understanding and tools for life.

The creation of Ohrsom Student was met with widespread enthusiasm and support. South Africa today boasts a network of over 1000 past and current students.

This success has inspired the establishment of Ohrsom Student Australia. We too are experiencing growth at a rapid rate.

Ohrsom Student Australia offers thought provoking discussions on a weekly basis with over 30 students learning. We host fun social events to celebrate Jewish festivals throughout the year.

Perhaps what Ohrsom Student is most recognized for is it’s heavily subsidised international trips!

Come join us!!
