The ORT Pri Etz Chaim School in the capital, Bishkek, provides education for some of the 1,500 Jews remaining in this central Asian Muslim republic.

For over a millennia Jews have enjoyed the benefits of a tolerant native Kyrgyz people, but the community has been troubled by social tensions in recent years.

The school, which opened in 1993 and joined the ORT network in 2004, provides a safe and nurturing environment for Jewish children. It attracts students with academic and STEM-based excellence and boosts family and communal life with its Jewish education syllabus.

Security measures, safe travel and hot meals help to ensure that this community grows in knowledge and confidence.
