ORT has been an integral part of Ohio’s philanthropic landscape for over 60 years, establishing chapters in Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Toledo and Columbus. Today, the Ohio Region of ORT America has combined the efforts and initiatives of the men and women in the state to become a united voice in Jewish philanthropy in support of ORT schools and programs throughout the world.
The Ohio Region raises funds to support the World ORT global network of schools and programs with its annual campaign and annual fundraising events: Jurisprudence Dinner and Annual ORT Brunch.
Ohio is the proud home of ORT America’s immediate past president Larry Kadis, and National Board members, Suellen Kadis, Michael Perlmuter and Lewis Zipkin.
“I have been involved with ORT for many years and look forward to continuing the strong Cleveland legacy.”
-- Greg Marcus, President, Ohio Region
