World ORT is the world’s largest Jewish education and vocational training non-governmental organisation.

Started in 1880, World ORT is today operational in 37 countries and helps around 300 000 students around the world. Specialised in technology, our mission is to provide communities wherever they are, with the skills and knowledge necessary to cope with the complexities and uncertainties of their environment.

World ORT students rewarded

World ORT’s mission, Educating for Life!, is more than teaching employable skills – it’s about helping children find a positive ethical path. Israelis Noam Shitrit and Noam Eliaz are among the winners of this year’s World ORT Gina Harmatz Award for Social Responsibility, which recognises students who display extraordinary kindness, generosity and compassion. They and the other Gina Harmatz winners are inspirational.

Joseph Harmatz 1925 - 2016

It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news that Joseph Harmatz, wartime partisan and in peace a tireless fighter for ORT's mission of Educating for Life, died today. He joined ORT in 1960 and led World ORT as Director General for 13 years, until his retirement in 1993. Courageous, visionary and determined, his achievements will go on to benefit generations to come. The funeral is scheduled for 2.30pm tomorrow (Friday) at Kvar Shmaryahu cemetery, near Herzliya. The ORT family sends its condolences to the Harmatz family, in particular his sons, Zvi and Ronny.

An energetic crowd of 100 ORT Argentina students swept into the World ORT offices in London today. They learned about the international ORT network of which they are such an important part and were able to see that network in action – a big screen showing their school lead an international challah agula (the round challah traditional at Rosh Hashana) baking workshop linked by videoconference with ORT students in Israel, Russia, Italy, Mexico, South Africa, the Czech Republic, India, and Ukraine.
