Jobs Waiting for Ort School Graduates in North America

There are jobs for every skilled mechanic graduated from ORT vocational schools in Tunisia and Morocco. Max Braude, director general of the World ORT Union, reported here today upon his return from a tour of North Africa. He insisted that such favorable conditions “must be exploited” by making every effort to expand ORT’s facilities in the countries involved and to turn out more graduates.

ORT schools have helped make “deep inroads” into poverty among Jews in Morocco, Dr. Braude added, but warned that much still has to be done and at an accelerated pace if a solution is to be found for the “grinding economic helplessness” in which tens of thousands of North African Jews are trapped.
