THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

TEL AVIV (ZINS) - The
Building Contractors Asso-
ciation in Israel says the
cost of housing rose 130-150
percent in Israel in 1978.

NEW YORK - The
newly issued ORT Year-
book reports an enormous
leap of enrollment in ORT
programs around the world.
The single major feature of
ORT during the decade of
the '70s was achieving a
peak of 100,000 youth and
adults in its training and
educational facilities ear-
lier this year.
Released by Sidney E.
Leiwant, president of the
American ORT Federation,
the 1979 ORT Yearbook de-
scribes this growth as "no
mere phenomenon of the
year under review, but in
reality the ongoing trend
that has characterized ORT
in recent years. A projection

of rising demand for ORT
services of all kinds and in
many parts of the Jewish
world, documents the con-
tinuing growth of ORT in
the next period."
In an introduction to the

559-82091

study, Leiwant calls atten-
tion to a historic milestone.
"On April 10, 1979, the
organization created by a
founding document issued
in St. Petersburg on that
same date in 1880, entered
its Centennial Year. How
ORT fared over the course of
10 decades, and how it man-
aged to survive to achieve
its current position as a
force that is firmly rooted in
Jewish communal realities,
will be the business of the
ORT Centennial Congress
which will assemble in
Jerusalem in May 1980."
The yearbook focuses
on the developments of
1978 - ORT's 98th year.
It records that 1070

all ORT

programs in 24 countries
was 97,776. This com-
pares with 84,000 the year
before, or a rise of 14,000
trainees in a single year.
Israel reported an in-
crease of 12,000.
In the perspective of what
has been happening in ORT
expansion during the '70s,
the yearbook finds that
ORT enrollment has added
40,000 persons to its annual
roster, an increase of more

than 70 percent.
Among the enrollments
which have increased, the
yearbook reports: Soviet
Jews served in the Rome
area numbered 6,000 in
1978; ORT schools in
France, whose youth popu-
lation is 85 percent of
Jewish North African ori-
gin, totalled 7,761, an all-
time record.
However, largest propor-
tionate increases have oc-
curred in Latin American
communities. New pro-
grams and others that have
been vastly enlarged and
updated include the open-
ing of an ORT computer
center as part of the huge
orvr c.ckaa.-,pic.2E in au.61105
Aires serving the half-
million Jews of Argentina; a
similar development in Rio
de Janiero; and establish-
ment of ORT programs in
community day schools in
Chile, Mexico, Colombia,
Paraguay, Peru and Ven-
ezuela.
In a separate section
focusing on Israel, the
yearbook states that last
year, the ORT program,

educational schools and
facilities. The number of
people enrolled, from
ages 13 to 60 and over,.
was 67,750, compared to

53 percent, or the equiv-

Joseph Harmatz, director o

ORT Israel, in explaining
this upsurge. "A marked
shift in national values as to
what- is considered good for
the children in school has
taken place.

ORT education has helped-
raise vocational and techni-
cal schooling in the eyes of
the people of Israel, in the
national outlook," is the
finding of the yearbook
study.
