Past Projects

Providing Informal Jewish Education at ORT Rambam School, Kishinev, 2010-2012

The ORT Rambam School is one of two ORT Schools operating in the city. It provides ORT's specialist education in Jewish Studies and Information Technology alongside a full state curriculum.

Most of the school's students grew up in homes where little, if anything, was known of the traditions of the Jewish faith. Years under Communism had left parents and even grandparents out of touch with even the most basic aspects of religious practice.

SMART Classrooms in Megiddo, Israel, 2009-2013

As part of World ORT's '1,000 SMART Classrooms' initiative, Megiddo Regional High School was provided with 10 SMART Classrooms in March 2010.

Megiddo Regional High School caters to 700 students from grades 7-12, integrating students from all faiths and those with disabilities in a single school environment.The school has been identified by the Ministry of Education as a 'red' priority educational area, requiring assistance to raise the educational standard.

Social Needs Provision, Sha'ar HaNegev, Israel, 2009

Sha’ar HaNegev Regional High School, located just outside Sderot in Southern Israel, has been a regular target for Kassam rockets from Gaza.

An anonymous ORT UK donor approached the organisation, keen to do something to help. He offered to support the school expenses of a number of children to reduce at least this area of worry for their parents. The money was used to purchase school books, sports kit and equipment for a number of students identified by the school councillors as needing extra help.

Dr. and Mrs. M Brynberg Scholarships, Israel, 2009-

In her legacy, left to ORT UK in September 2008, Mrs Anna Brynberg requested the establishment of a scholarship in her and her husband's name.

The Dr. and Mrs. M Brynberg Scholarships were established in 2009, and will be given each year to two students from Kadima-Mada supported schools in Israel whose economic situation makes it difficult for them to pay for their tertiary education.
