Ort Sets Up Institute in Switzerland to Train Jewish Teachers for Its Schools

An ORT training institute to prepare some 80 Jews to serve in the organization’s schools and installations throughout the world has been opened near there. It is expected that the graduates of the new school will ease the shortage of qualified Jewish teachers in ORT centers.

Located near the Swiss-French border, the institute will offer instruction in technical subjects, as well as in Hebrew, French, history and mathematics. The students–all of them young men from various sections of the world–will study in specially-renovated classrooms and will also have at their disposal workshops equipped with up-to-date machinery.
