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.

Zog Nit Keynmol - The Partisans' Song
You can see how the students at the ORT school in Chernivtsi, Ukraine were inspired by Zog Nit Keynmol, the partisan song written by the young Vilna poet Hirsh Glik to a melody by Soviet-Jewish composer Dimitri Pokrass.
See how one man is spurring on new generations to appreciate the song more deeply: elirab.me/teaching-the-partisan-song-to-a-new-generation/.

A song for Yom HaShoah
With each Yom HaShoah the number of Survivors dwindles making the challenge of engaging new generations more difficult and more urgent. But Australian film maker Eli Rabinowitz has found a way – and it’s inspired ORT students across the Former Soviet Union.

Eli has started an international push to popularise the partisan song Zog Nit Keynmol by linking ORT and non-ORT schools in an online programme to not only learn its Yiddish – or Hebrew – words but also to delve into its meaning and historical significance and to share what they learn.

The result has moved groups of students at World ORT schools in Kiev, Odessa, Kishinev, Vilnius, Chernivtsi, Tallinn, Moscow, Kazan and Samara to prepare videos for Yom HaShoah singing the anthem written by the Vilna poet Hirsh Glik to a melody by the Soviet-Jewish composer Dimitri Pokrass.

“This is a powerful statement and shows that we can link the generations this way,” South Africa-born Eli said. “How many Survivors will be with us next year? Let’s honour them and their legacy. Yom HaShoah is such a significant day for them and for our youth - for all of us! We are all survivors!”
