Dear Parents and Applicants,


Thank you for your interest in the Tzohar Seminary for Chassidus and the Arts.


We review each application in its entirety using a holistic review process to determine whether a student will thrive at Tzohar Seminary. Since not all students showcase their abilities in the same way, each application is given careful consideration before an admission decision is reached. Tzohar seeks students who are focused and serious about their Torah learning as well as those who are talented in the arts and looking to integrate creativity and the arts into an authentic seminary experience.

Applicants must submit the following:

1. Completed application for admission (including the attached essay)

2. Official high school transcripts

3. Two letters of recommendation + two additional (non-family) references to call.
4. Photograph of student

5. $100 application fee

After submitting the above items, applicants will be contacted to complete an interview (either in New York or via skype). Feel free to bring a portfolio (samples of art, writing, performances, etc.) to your interview.

Please download our application in your format of choice:


Please email your application, forms, and questions to:

When we receive all of the above, we will contact you to arrange a personal interview.

**Please note that Tzohar Seminary does not provide visas or legal paperwork for non-U.S. citizens.

Initial application deadline: Monday, January 10, 2022 (Interviews will take place in Crown Heights over Chof-Beis Shvat weekend.)

Applications can be submitted after January 10th and will be considered on a rolling basis as long as space is still available.
