Dear Parents and Applicants,


Thank you for your interest in the Tzohar Seminary.


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 committed to and actively observant of Torah Mitzvot, serious about learning, and interested and talented in the arts and looking to integrate creativity into an authentic seminary experience.

Applicants must submit the following:

1. Completed typed 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 (please attach receipt)

After submitting the above items, applicants will be contacted to complete an interview. 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 type all answers):


Please email your application, forms, and questions to:

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