Brooklyn in 1927 to an
organization of 135,000
members in 1,055 chapters
across the United States. It
is also the largest group
within World ORT.
Mrs. Minkoff noted that
the original founders of the
women's group were the
wives of men who were
members of the American
ORT Federation which was
founded a few years earlier
or had come from Europe
where they had been famil-
iar with the work of ORT
since it began in Russia , in
1890. One of the original
founders, Florence Dolow-
itz, now 88, is honorary
president of the
organization.
Women's American ORE
grew slowly in its first quar-
ter century. By 1950 it had
only 13,000 members in 105
chapters. Mrs. Minkoff said
the growth began because of
the need for ORT sdiools in
post-Holocaust Eirrope and
the new state of Israel and
because Nathan Gould, now
its national executive vice
president and executive
director, joined it and
worked to expand the
organization.
During the post-war
period, Women's American
ORT provided materials for
classes held in DP camps
and sponsored the construc-
tion of the Aron Syng-
alowski Center in Tel Aviv,
which Mrs. Minkoff said

vocational
revolutionized
education in the Middle
East.
The women's group also
helped as ORT moved in
with vocational aid for Jews
in Morocco and South
America, areas where Jew-
ish organizations had not
gone before, according to
Mrs. Minkoff. She said as
Jews left North Africa the
American group sponsored
projects in France, such as
a school in Lyons.
In Israel, ORT has some
80 different types of schools
including apprenticeship
centers sponsored by*:
Women's American ORT
and the new. Engineering
School at Hebrew
University.
Women's American ORT
recently started a program
with the Israeli Nfinistry of
Iducation and the World
Zionist Organization which
allows American youngsters
to take American 10th and
11th grade cuniculum
courses in Israel while
undergoing a work-study
program which gives them
a chance to get to meet and
know Israeli youths of the
same age.
