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.

Shavua tov! To start the week we’d like to introduce our new Director General and CEO – Avi Ganon. Avi’s well known in the ORT family through his many years of service, first leading World ORT operations in the Former Soviet Union and then leading World ORT Kadima Mada קדימה מדע in Israel.

Avi’s appointment is an exciting moment for the organisation. As World ORT President Dr Conrad Giles said: “Over the last 10 years Avi has demonstrated extraordinary leadership, imagination and drive in establishing our affiliate in Israel. I know that he will be successful in expanding World ORT’s activities in all our regions.”

Dario Werthein, the Chair of World ORT’s Board of Trustees, added: “Avi’s dynamism in expanding World ORT Kadima Mada speaks volumes for his ability. I know that he will bring the same skills to his position at World ORT. I look forward to working with him closely.”

Avi’s taking on the professional leadership of World ORT at a critical time. As he says: “Growing social and economic polarisation and the instability that results from it makes education society’s top priority. Only through an education which is attuned to the demands of the 21st century can we raise new generations with the skill and confidence to thrive. That is precisely what World ORT’s emphasis on scientific, technological and ethical education provides. It is a tremendous honour to follow in the footsteps of people like Aaron Singalowski, Max Braude, Joseph Harmatz and Robert Singer, who have led World ORT to groundbreaking achievements in Jewish communities around the world. I am grateful to the leadership of World ORT for giving me the opportunity to lead this great organisation on the next stage of its 137-year-old mission of Educating for Life.”

Music-fuelled interest in South Korea was raised to fever pitch in Latin America when the performer PSY laid down the Gangnam plank to closer cultural ties with a 2012 smash hit that’s now approaching 3 billion views on YouTube.

Universidad ORT responded by hosting the Instituto Rey Sejong Montevideo, one of 144 official centres for the teaching of the Korean language around the world, and signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Korea University.

Now, the innovative university has turned up the volume with an academic cooperation agreement with KU, which is ranked 90th among the world’s universities and 16th in Asia. The agreement was signed by ORT Uruguay’s Rector, Dr JOrge Grunberg, and his opposite number at KU, Dr Jaeho Yeom (pictured).

“This agreement will allow regular student exchanges,” said ORT Uruguay Academic Vice-Rector Julio Fernandez. “Our students will benefit greatly from the synergy between this opportunity to study at a prestigious university and our teaching of Korean language and culture.”

ORT Uruguay now has 89 student exchange agreements in operation, covering 20 countries.

“Each year we receive approximately 150 students in exchange, typically for one semester, and send abroad a somewhat smaller number. Students take back the academic credits earned during their semester abroad, which is also an important component of some study programs such as the BA in International Studies,” said Mr Fernandez.
