We introduce you the article in The Jerusalem Post “Strengthening Communities Through World ORT Education”, in which the ORT education programs of Jewish children in Eastern Europe are introduced. Among those schools – Vilnius Sholom Aleichem ORT gymnasium. Ruth Reches, a Hebrew teacher and psychologist at the gymnasium, explained that the school utilizes the Tal Am system to teach values, traditions and the Hebrew language. Ruth also notes that many parents of the children who attend the school learn about Judaism through their children: “The children come home and explain to their parents about the holidays – what to eat, what to pray. This is how the parents learn.”
