In November 1998, a group of young, like-minded Baalei Batim formed a committee who wished to create an Ashkenaz Minyan which enhaced their Tefillos. Their aim was to create an atmosphere which was in keeping with the Halochos of Tefillah in a warm and friendly environment.

The result is Ohr Yerushalayim, a vibrant Shul under the leadership of our dynamic Rov, Rabbi Berel Cohen שליט”א.

Housed in a custom built Beis HaMedrash in Salford, Manchester, the Shul has become recognised as a Makom Torah and Tefilla where all feel welcomed.
