The ORT Colegio Estrella Toledano in Madrid joined the ORT network in May 2017.
The school community is excited by the opportunities opened up by being part of World ORT’s international network Speaking after the Spanish capital’s only Jewish day school formally joined the ORT family, the Chair of the organisation’s Board of Trustees, Dario Werthein, said the development “gives power to revive Jewish life in Spain”.
“More than 500 years ago the Jews had to go through the Inquisition and expulsion. The culture of the academy, the art and intellectual life of Jews, which was so important, was lost. Now that the local Jewish school has joined ORT we can work together for the resurgence of Jewish life in Spain,” Mr Werthein said.
