— ORT schools in Israel recently reported a record student registration for the 1981-82 school year which begins September 1. More than 10,000 new students are expected to attend the 115 ORT schools throughout Israel, bringing the total enrollment to an estimated 75,000, announced Sidney Leiwant, American ORT Federation president.

“We consider this particularly significant since registration began on April 10, coinciding with the 101st birthday of ORT, ” Leiwant said. “Clearly, the high level vocational and technical training which students receive at ORT schools is in great demand. ORT schools fill a vital need in preparing young Israelis for places in the country’s technologically-oriented industries.”
