Ort to Transfer to Israel a Number of Its Schools for Displaced Jews in Europe

Dr. Aaron Syngalowski, chairman of the executive committee of the World ORT Union, sailed for Israel from Venice yesterday. He will confer with the Israeli Government about projects for a large-scale ORT vocational training program in Israel.

Dr. Syngalowski’s trip is made following a decision by the central board of his organization to give full support to the upbuilding of Israel’s skilled labor force. This program will include the transfer to Israel of a number of ORT schools for Europe’s DP camps, along with the equipment and teaching personnel.
