Not even a global pandemic could stand in the way of the much-anticipated ORT JUMP Graduation.

And so on July 6th 2020, as planned, over 300 students, parents, teachers and mentors gathered on Zoom to celebrate the ORT JUMP students’ and mentors’ achievements, marking the end of this year’s programme.

Special guests, Gabe and Ben Turner, founders of TV & Film Production Company, Fulwell 73, joined the event to reveal their secrets to success in an interview with broadcaster and mentor Juliet Mann.

JFS student, Jordana Schlagman, shared her experience of the programme, being mentored by consultant paediatrician Dr Claire Lemer, and explained how it has affirmed her decision to pursue a career in medicine.

We also heard from ORT JUMP Ambassador and mentor Dan Reinhold, ORT UK CEO, Dan Rickman and ORT JUMP Coordinator, Anna Black.

Finally, the moment everyone had been waiting for – the award ceremony hosted by ORT JUMP Coordinator Mia Lyons:


Student of the Year – Zak Wolfson, JFS

Mentor of the Year – Adam Kosky

Mentor and Student Partnership – Sophia Khan (Parliament Hill) & mentor Ian Westbrook

Student Runners Up – Jessie Hakkak (Yavneh College) and Anna Subina (La Sainte Union)

A huge congratulations to all our winners and every one of our students who completed the programme.

A final thank you to our amazing mentors who continued to support their students online and offer their expertise during 17 incredible ORT JUMP lockdown webinars.

Stay alert and have a great summer!
