Oholei Torah ("Tents of Torah"), [properly referred to as Oholei Menachem ("Tents of Menachem") after Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson,] is the common name of the Lubavitch schools Educational Institute Oholei Menachem and Talmudical Seminary Oholei Torah. The main branches of the school, and its administrative offices, are located in Brooklyn, New York City.
Educational Institute Oholei Torah is a yeshiva for male students in Chabad-Lubavitch Movement, drawing students from around the world and providing a vast majority of the Chabad Shluchim from amongst its graduates. Oholei Torah's curriculum consists solely of torah study, with a strong emphasis on the teachings of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. The curriculum has been noted for its exclusion of all secular studies. Founded in 1957, at Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson's directive, with four (or three) students, Oholei Torah now enrolls over 1600 students annually.
