More than 130 students, most of them German refugees, have begun work at the new workshops opened by the ORT to give vocational training to refugees. Six shops are open and five more, with accommodations for another 150 students, will be opened in the near future.

The shops were opened Friday with ceremonies at which Chief Rabbi of Paris Julien Weil presided. Rabbi Weil stressed the importance of the ORT as an agency for training Jews as artisans and agricultural workers.

Dr. Henry Moskowitz, chairman of the board of directors of the American ORT, was principal speaker. Henri Bodenheimer, president of the French ORT, greeted the audience. The Mayor of Paris and the Senator from the local district were present.
