Ohrsom Student Australia is an organization aimed at enhancing the lives of young Jews of Australia. In a world where many university age students feel trapped on the surface of life, our mission is to teach the tools for diving deeper. We expand students’ horizons with trips abroad to Israel and the United Sates and help them manifest those expansive experiences into real growth with weekly programming back in the hometowns. Judaism, when understood and practiced properly, is a lens that empower people to contribute to society and feel personally fulfilled. Our Belief System is simple: Learn it, Live it, and Love it.
