What are International Missions

19.06.17

When World ORT members and supporters are asked what encourages them to increase their involvement with ORT, the most common response given is, ‘visiting the schools and actually meeting the students’ . That is why World ORT holds many exciting missions to numerous locations to see ORT programmes and students in action. World ORT missions show donors how their valued contribution has been spent, by visiting the wide range of educational projects ORT provides to Jewish communities around the world. If you would like to see how your contributions are used and visit new and exciting destinations, read on and contact us for further information or view the Diary for upcoming Mission dates. Not only do mission participants get to see how their contribution is being put to good use, but they also have the opportunity to visit destinations they wouldn’t normally venture to on their own. For example, Missions to countries in the CIS give participants the opportunity to see burgeoning Jewish communities, while giving delegates a chance to reconnect to their own Jewish heritage. Last year World ORT lead missions to Cuba, Belarus, France, Ukraine and Moldova to mention but a few. This year we have planned missions to Israel, Argentina, Uruguay, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Ukraine and Kiev. As a World ORT mission delegate, you will have an exciting, spiritual, and historical journey to places you have only dreamed of visiting whilst seeing the wonderful work that ORT is doing in these countries. You can also contact ‘The Missions Co-ordinator’ at the International Liaison Department of World ORT for information on any future missions. or Click here to contact us by email now, or send an email to [email protected]
