More than 1,000 children benefit from an ORT education in the capital, Kishinev, thanks to the support given to two Jewish schools there – the ORT Herzl Technology Lyceum and the Lyceum Rambam.
The Technology Lyceum joined the ORT network after receiving a fully equipped ICT centre in 2000. In 2015, World ORT secured the school’s move to larger, fully refurbished premises with facilities geared to providing a top quality 21st Century education.
The Lyceum Rambam opened in 1992, and has been supported by ORT since 2008. ORT has equipped the school with a modern computer centre.
Together, the schools play an essential role in developing the identity of a small but increasingly confident community by providing a quality education attractive to aspirational Jewish families many of which had only minimal connection to their heritage.
