In Russia, ORT day schools provide outstanding STEM education and Jewish studies in cooperation with local governments and the Israel Ministry of Education, offering students a solid foundation for higher education. ORT vocational training centers and ORT KesherNet centers for adults serve the Jewish population and others by offering training relevant to jobs in today’s competitive market. ORT makes education infused with Jewish values accessible where resources are limited, strengthens Russian Jewish communities, and provides a bridge to Jewish cultural celebrations and traditions hidden during decades of Soviet oppression. Our mission participants are visiting  a variety of ORT schools and programs and meeting students, teachers and administrators to hear how ORT makes a positive impact.
