About ORT Ohio Annual Brunch

The annual ORT Brunch, begun in 1972, has been the culminating event for the Annual Campaign. For over 40 years, ORT has honored outstanding leaders of the general, Jewish, and ORT communities.

In 2014, the annual ORT Award was renamed to align with the values of the Jewish sage, Maimonides.  Maimonides outlines seven levels of charity; the highest level is to help a man help himself. This has always been and will continue to be, the essence of ORT's mission. The annual award presented by ORT America is now known as The Maimonides Award.

Tickets and sponsorships are now available.

For more information, please contact Ohio Region Director Char Rapoport Nance, 216-364-3022,
