ORT America’s Donors Fuel Strong 2011
Campaign, Despite Economic Downturn
We begin with our profound thanks to the thousands of ORT AMERICA supporters
throughout the United States who simply would NOT let an economic downturn be the
excuse for a weak campaign. You gave more and you gave earlier, allowing us to fund vital
programs both within the United States (via U.S. Operations) and throughout the world (via
We recommitted ourselves to WORLD ORT’s Kadima Mada (Science Journey) programs
in Israel with a mission of supporters that allowed us to interact with school administrators
and students alike.
Across the board in all the schools where SMART Classrooms are up and running, test
scores on annual high school matriculation exams are up. We should all feel proud to
be associated with the profound impact Kadima Mada is having on the Israeli education
In Argentina, ORT contributions resulted in the dedication of a new school campus in
Buenos Aires to help meet the demand for an ORT education that outgrew the capacity
of its existing ORT schools. In the U.S., more than 80 percent of the class of 2011 found
employment in their chosen fields.
So we want to thank the many thousands of ORT AMERICA supporters, like you for your
generosity and for helping to make 2011 a banner year.
We look forward to working with you for many years to come.

ORT Launches Advanced Science and
Technology Center in Sha’ar HaNegev
In September 2012, Sha’ar HaNegev High School
opened its new Science and Technology Center, funded
by ORT’s Kadima Mada (Science Journey) program.
The campus has been fortified to protect against
rocket attacks while maintaining educational balance,
and fostering a communal and collaborative culture.
The school’s 1,200 students will have a safe learning
environment, which in turn will help the region attract
young families despite initial security concerns. World
ORT contributed chemistry and physics labs, four
multi-purpose labs, a logistics center, and an exhibition
space – an investment of over $1 million.
$15 Million Gift Kickstarts Scholarships
ORT has established the Anieres II Engineering/
Technology Scholarship Program, a $35 million
education program in Israel, benefiting at least 500
teenagers from low socio-economic backgroundstaken in 10 annual intakes of up to 60 students. An
anonymous $15 million donation from a current ORT
America donor, and graduate of the original Anieres
program, made this initiative possible. It will be bundled
with an $18 million contribution by the State of Israel in
addition to $2 million paid through student tuitions.

Fellowship Continues Support for ORT
Students in the CIS
An ORT Education for Mexico’s
40,000-Strong Jewish Community
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews,
often known as “The Fellowship,” provided emergency
funding of $400,000 to assist ORT’s network of 17
schools within the Commonwealth of Independent
States (CIS) cope with funding cutbacks from the
Heftsiba system – the conduit through which the
State of Israel has supported the education of Jewish
children attending ORT schools in the CIS. Without
this emergency infusion to cover essential needs, the
whole system of Jewish education in the CIS was in
danger of collapse.
ORT Mexico is extending into university-level business
education with the University Center in Advanced
Management and Business Development at the CIM–
ORT School, in Mexico City. ORT Mexico expects the
center to increase its enrollment substantially. It will
provide B.A. degrees in Business and Development,
International Trade and Globalization, and Marketing
2.0 and Advertising, as well as an M.A. in Advanced
Business Management. Although scholarships will be
available, the integration of classroom teaching with
online courses will also make the center affordable.
New Digital Media Program
Gaining Momentum
Naomi Prawer Kadar Foundation and
ORT Launch New Training Seminar
Los Angeles ORT College is located in the heart of the
movie and television industry, so it makes perfect sense
for the college to have recently developed a program
that offers students an Associate of Applied Science
(AAS) Degree in Digital Media. The curriculum prepares
students for careers in graphic design and desktop
publishing by learning multimedia, animation and
photography editing. Essential tools for those looking to
branch out in the field of magazine publishing and video
production, especially.
The inaugural Naomi Prawer Kadar International
Seminar for Digital Technology in Jewish Education
was held in Moscow, and brought together nearly
30 Hebrew teachers from Belarus, Russia, Israel,
Kyrgyzstan, and beyond for four days at the Moscow
ORT Technology School. Participants experienced
training, workshops and digital demonstrations using
interactive whiteboards and video-conferencing.

The 1880 Society
Diamond Ladder
Minimum of $100,000 paid within 3 years.
In honor of ORT’s 125th year, World ORT established the 1880
Society as a way of ensuring that ORT continues to provide a
world-class education for hundreds of thousands of children and
adults in an ever-changing global economy.
The 1880 Society’s name recalls the year of ORT’s creation
when its founding fathers – Nikolai Bakst, Samuel Poliakov and
Baron Horace Gunzburg – used their wealth and influence to
improve the future of less fortunate Russian Jews. Their vision
and spirit of philanthropy, which has guided and sustained ORT
throughout its 132-year history, is as relevant today as it was then.
Listed below are the American members of this
prestigious international recognition society.
“The highest degree of charity – above which there is no higher – is he who
strengthens the hand of his fellow Jews through helping him obtain work so that he
may be independent and not be reliant upon others.” — Maimonides

A minimum annual commitment of $5000 a year for 3 years.
The Diamond Ladder Society was developed to reflect the eight
levels of tzedekah identified by 12th century philosopher Moses
Maimonides. The highest form of tzedekah is giving people the
skills needed to become self-sufficient and the gift of no longer
needing charity at all, a guiding principle of ORT since its
inception in 1880. With a three-year commitment at one of the
eight levels of giving, Diamond Ladder members help ORT to
plan and budget wisely, and ensure ORT’s stability and growth.
These levels are:
$100,000 - $179,999
$35,000 - $49,999
$10,000 - $17,99
$180,000 - $249,999
$50,000 - $99,999

pin and ladies’ Golden Circle pin have been proudly worn
for decades, symbolizing ORT’s enduring mission and the
connection the organization’s supporters have to our students
around the world.

The de Gunzbourg Society
Named in memory of one of the founding families of ORT, the
de Gunzbourg Society honors supporters who have generously
provided gifts to ORT America through charitable gift annuities,
charitable trusts, pooled income funds and life insurance
policies or who have declared their intention to leave a bequest
to ORT America.
Additionally, the Heritage Club is a subset of the
de Gunzbourg Society for supporters with planned gift
endowments of $50,000 or more.

ORT’s groundbreaking partnership with Mexico’s
oldest Jewish school, Colegio Israelita de

critical curricular and technological support. In
September 2012, ORT Mexico is preparing to
extend its activities into university-level business
education with the opening of the University
Center in Advanced Management and Business
Development at CIM-ORT.
ORT’s first endeavor was the establishment of
a Media Training Center that focused on digital
technologies, Internet broadcasting and HD video
production. This center was instantly well received
within the Mexican Jewish community, used by
students from CIM-ORT as well as Jewish day
When demand for enrollment skyrocketed - with
more than half of the 4,500 Jewish children in
Santiago not receiving Jewish education - ORT

widespread acclaim and support for its projects,
ORT Chile has helped thousands of people in the
country’s communities, through computer literacy
programs, leadership courses, teacher training,
technical support and more.
ORT Chile is embarking on an ambitious
project to train 20,000 small business-owners in

ORT was launched in St. Petersburg, Russia, by a group of
Jewish businessmen in 1880, aiming to uplift the Jewish
population out of poverty through providing access to
education, particularly through trade and agricultural
schools. This belief in the power of education has
anchored ORT for over 130 years.
ORT’s work was suspended in the region in 1938;
however, it was reinstated when the USSR dissolved in
the 1990s. ORT became the leading Jewish education
provider in a community largely unaware of their Jewish
Today, ORT’s efforts have expanded beyond Jewish
education to include technical training, elementary and
middle schools with affiliate chapters in the Russian
Federation, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Latvia, Lithuania
and Kyrgyzstan.
Serving the demands of the nation, these programs
cater to over 27,000 students in 50 institutions in 40
locations, including 17 schools in ten countries that
provide an outstanding level of education to 6,000
students annually.
ORT provides training for those preparing to
emigrate to Israel and for those wishing to stay in the
CIS and Baltic States.

Jewish studies.
ORT works throughout Ukraine with Jewish populations
that have lost their Judaic identity. ORT outposts can be
found within the cities of Odessa, Kiev, Dnipropetrovsk,
Kharkov and Zaporizhzhya. The schools’ programming
ranges from training in web design and computer
animation to Hebrew and Jewish studies.
ORT’s work has been so effective that in 2008, the
Ukrainian Ministry of Education adopted ORT teaching
strategies and methodologies in technological subjects
at several state schools.

Revolution in Israel
Israel has faced an educational crisis in science and
math. Its students, once ranked among the top 10
nations, slipped to 41st, putting the country’s ability
to innovate at serious risk.
To address this educational emergency, ORT
has embarked on a rare partnership between nonprofit and government organizations to institute
the Kadima Mada (Science Journey) program.
Since its launch in 2007, Kadima Mada has
revolutionized science and technology education
for over 150,000 students in 165 schools, including
27 schools situated within public hospitals, located
in communities stressed by high unemployment,
high student dropout rates, and social changes.
Kadima Mada’s educational technology
comes in two “flavors.” The first is the Smart
Classroom. Teachers connect their computers to
interactive whiteboards, which link to students’
laptop computers. These interconnected laptops
allow students to visualize concepts and examine
their studies in greater depth than with traditional
blackboard methods.
The second “flavor” is the Intelligent
Laboratory, filled with up-to-date equipment
