The executive committee of the World ORT Union today approved the agency’s more than $7,000,000 budget for 1963 and voted to go into debt to meet the vocational training needs of the Jewish community in France.

Max Braude, director-general of ORT, said that “the future of thousands of young men on the streets in the major cities in France is a matter of very serious concern and an urgent problem requiring immediate attention.” As part of this program, the executive committee announced that ORT was opening a training center in Toulouse in cooperation with the French Government.
