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.

World ORT added 2 new photos — with Mazi Shalev.

Kol hakavod to the students from Hodayot Religious Youth Village who ran the 10 km route at the Jerusalem Marathon!
Their achievement was the result of weeks of training – and a strong team spirit.
English teacher Mazi Shalev, who led the team, said: "We went out to run as one cohesive group with matching T-shirts. It was great fun to run together. It was a formative sporting experience. We were grateful for the opportunity of seeing Jerusalem’s astonishing sites. Like the rising of Jerusalem's hills, the experience raised our spirits.”
Hodayot Youth Village is one of six schools in the World ORT Kadima Mada קדימה מדע network. It is home to 250 students, most of them from disadvantaged families. When children arrive at the school they have fallen far below the average educational level for their age.
The Jerusalem Marathon run was just one opportunity for self-awareness and character development the school gives students. They learn how to be hardworking, persistent, and target oriented – and, through their achievement, they boost their self-esteem.

Teenage girls doing the Young Ambassadors programme at World ORT's YOUniversity in Tsfat were in Thessaloniki to mark the 74th anniversary of the first deportation of Jews from the Greek city to Auschwitz.

They took part in the city's March of the Living, joined a round table with the students from the Anatolia school and met with Israel's ambassador to Greece.

One of the Ulpana AMIT students, Noga Reshbelch, said: "For me, visiting the Jewish school was the most exciting event. During the mission, I learned to deal with changing situations and uncertainty."

Another, Etti Gerbi, added: "I felt pride and solidarity to represent the State of Israel and Judaism."

Thessaloniki, also known as Salonika, was home to the oldest Jewish community on the European mainland and became the largest centre of Sephardic Jews on the continent. Before the war, Jews comprised 20 per cent of the city’s population – the port was so dependent on Jewish trade, investment and labour that it was closed on Shabbat and Yom Tovim.

Between March 1943 and the end of the war, approximately 96 per cent of Thessaloniki's Jews were deported and murdered. Today, a community of around 1200 remains in the city.

The Young Ambassadors programme helps students to develop skills in public speaking, interpersonal communication and community involvement through public relations-related activities both in Israel and abroad.

The Tsfat YOUniversity is one of seven centres of excellence providing extra-curricular enrichment for Jewish and non-Jewish schoolchildren in under-resourced communities. There are two in Jerusalem and one each in Kiryat Gat, Nazareth, Dimona and Nahariya. The YOUniversity programme is operated by World ORT Kadima Mada קדימה מדע in partnership with the Ministry for Development of the Negev and Galilee and local municipalities.
