Happy Chanukah, Chag Sameach and thank you!

Chanukah is a special time of year for all of us – lighting candles in the darkness of winter and reflecting on a story of commitment, dedication and pride. For the young people and students in our schools, such as those pictured above at ORT Educational Complex in Kiev, Chanukah is a particularly exciting time, bringing doughnuts, latkes and gifts at the end of their winter term.

Twinning with Kiev

Following on from the success of last year’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah twinning project with Vilnius, Lithuania, ORT UK in partnership with Muswell Hill Synagogue, are thrilled to have launched their second annual twinning programme – this time with Kiev!

11 children from the Muswell Hill community have been matched with Ukranian students from the Kiev ORT Educational Complex #141 and the ORT Simcha School, for a year-long journey of discovery and learning. Throughout the programme, both sets of children will connect and build friendships through email and skype.

The days between Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur are traditionally a time for contemplation and aspiration. Apple and honey give us a taste of our hopes for a sweet year and the sounds of the shofar are an opportunity to stop and listen to its call for reflection and action. Across the world these traditions are part of the fabric that weaves diverse Jewish communities together within the rich tapestry of Jewish peoplehood.

  • Meet Daniel, Shachar and Olga from the Kfar Hassidim school. these three young Israelis will receive their education thanks to ORT and will be the next generation of computer programmers, paramedics and mechanical engineers. In the words of Olga who is studying computer science and physics, "I want to be a computer programmer in the future. There were hardly any computers in the school two years ago but now in our new science lab the teachers help me achieve my dreams. I came from a difficult family background and being in the boarding school has helped me to turn my life around and focus on my studies. Thank you for everything you have done for me and my friends at this school."
  • Hodaya and Yasmin both dream of becoming doctors. Luckily, they're studying at the World ORT Kadima Mada Kfar Silver school near Ashkelon, Israel, which thanks to YOUR support, has brand new chemistry labs. No wonder it's their favourite lesson! "When we first came, the paint was coming off the walls and chairs were broken. The new classrooms help us learn better, because the teachers have better facilities and the room is more comfortable, making it easier to concentrate in class." It's all part of our long-term project to renovate the entire campus.
