FAQs

How do I sign up? 2019-09-15T11:43:53+00:00

The only way to sign up is by contacting your Olami Rabbi. Delegations are being assembled from around the world, and your ticket to join is by speaking with your Olami rabbi and telling him “I’m in”. He’ll apply to Olami and that will get the registration process rolling.

How much does it cost? 2019-09-15T11:44:05+00:00

This highly-subsidized program is very affordable. Speak to your Olami rabbi to find out costs for students coming from different locations. I’m telling you now — it’s the best deal anywhere this winter!

The Ultimate Learning Retreat is a six-day event in New York and New Jersey, designed for Olami students interested in learning Torah, while connecting with other like-minded young men in the Olami network from around the globe.
One of the highlights of the Learning Retreat is the Siyum HaShas — a once-in-seven-years party that celebrates the completion of the whole Talmud in worldwide Daf Yomi program. Believe it or not, the Siyum HaShas celebration will be marked at Met Life Stadium and will be attended on January 1st by 90,000 Jews. It is the biggest celebration of Torah study in the world!
