We hope you will join us for this unique opportunity to experience ORT in action with an international group of ORT supporters.

See our projects, meet our students, and discuss the future of education first-hand. After two years of travel obstacles, we are excited to bring the ORT family back together in person for this special experience, so long as international travel guidelines allow us to do so.
