Download PDF for this date

An ambitious expansion program for the ORT in South Africa was outlined here last night at the opening of the first national ORT conference to be held in this country.

Dr. H. Sonnabend, chairman of the South African ORT, declared that the development of the CRT in this country has reached the stage where training- schools must be set up for South African youth and those who intend to migrate to Israel. He announced that the first classes will be opened next month. Dr. Aaron Syngalowski, executive chairman of the World ORT Union, who was the featured speaker of the session, reviewed the achievements of the agency throughout the world, with particular emphasis on its activities in Israel.
