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.

What is Education?

Education helps people realize their dreams, become who they want to be. Education empowers poorer communities, giving them the opportunity to grow and become self-sufficient. It’s also about sharing and connecting, to learn from each other.

Mazal tov Issur Danielovitch (aka Kirk Douglas) on your 100th birthday!

World ORT shared ‎אקדמיה לנוער YOU-niversity‎'s post.

"Knowledge of the Divine cannot be attained except through knowledge of the natural sciences," the great mediaeval polymath, Maimonides, wrote in the preface to his The Guide for the Perplexed. His view was that by learning the laws of nature, which are "the will of God", then human beings are drawn closer to God.

Through World ORT Kadima Mada קדימה מדע’s Torat Haim programme, Haredi educators in Tsfat and Jerusalem are learning how to teach scientific knowledge as an integral part of their schools’ curriculum using hands-on learning techniques.

These pictures show a robotics training seminar for Melamdim at Tsfat’s Talmudei Torah. The training was developd by Robotech Technologies and specially adapted for the Haredi community.

“By examining questions such as why we don’t use electricity on Shabbat we can learn about electricity and principles of physics,” said one teacher. “We’re not taking children away from the Halacha [Jewish religious law], we’re not following the ways of non-religious communities; we’re giving them the possibility to explore this material and the opportunity to learn.”

World ORT added 8 new photos to the album Warm appreciation for Israel's firefighters — with Moshe Kahlon.

The fires which threatened Israel are no more – but the appreciation and gratitude Israelis feel for the emergency workers and volunteers who battled the flames warms the heart.

Students, parents and staff at two schools in World ORT Kadima Mada קדימה מדע's network - Rabin High School in Kiryat Yam and Hodayot Youth Village - personally thanked their local firefighters.

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon joined the Rabin High School community when they took cakes and other treats to the local fire station while the Hodayot community made a similar trip to the fire station in Tiberias.

Miraculously, no deaths were reported as a result of the fires, some of which were a result of arson. However, some 5,000 acres of land was burned, and hundreds of homes were destroyed leaving more than 1,000 people homeless. However, World ORT Kadima Mada programmes, staff and students were left unscathed.

The multi-award-winning novelist David Almond thrilled his many young fans at Moscow ORT Technology School (Московская технологическая школа ОРТ - гимназия 1540) last week with a personal visit.

The internationally renowned author of Skellig toured the school, answered children’s questions (with the help of interpreter Olga Varshaver) and autographed books.

Among the highlights of his visit was a screening of an animated film the students had made of his book, The Boy who Swam with Piranhas – the story of a boy who runs away with a circus and finds his destiny with its piranha-taming act. Take a look: www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU4gzWbXs6A
