Join us as we recognize 100 years of ORT activities in the United States and the achievements of so many dedicated volunteers and supporters who made it possible. Since 1922, the impact of this work has made a world of difference to young students and their families, resulting in new opportunities for safe and secure lives, and the building of stronger Jewish communities.
