The Shalvi/Hyman Encyclopedia of Jewish Women Features thousands of biographic and thematic essays on Jewish women around the world. Learn more ORT (the Organization for Rehabilitation through Training) was founded in Russia in the late nineteenth century and opened its American, all-male organization in 1922. Women, mostly wives of male ORT members, became involved in the organization five years later, founding a women’s auxiliary group (WAO). Women fundraised for the social work of ORT through the first decades of the twentieth century, reflecting Jewish women’s expanding role in public life. As the Nazis took power in Germany, WAO helped impoverished Jews in Europe and shifted their efforts towards aid for displaced persons. Much of its work focused on creating vocational and technical schools across the world. In the later twentieth century, WAO expanded to help create medical services for students and provide recreational facilities, among many other tasks. ORT (initials of Russian Obshchestvo Rasprostraneniya Truda Sredi Yevreyev), the Organization for Rehabilitation through Training, was founded in Russia in 1880 to promote vocational training of trades and agriculture among impoverished Jews. Craftsmen received aid to move from the Pale of Settlement to the Russian interior and to establish small trades workshops, trade schools, and vocational courses. ORT gradually expanded to create Jewish agricultural colonies, model farms, and agricultural schools. During World War I, ORT helped Jewish refugees resettle and find employment. After the 1917 Revolution, ORT helped Jewish farmers and craftsmen in Russia, the Ukraine, Belorussia, Bessarabia, and elsewhere in the Soviet Union.
WAO, still a brand-new organization of women finding its way, fit that pattern of social service in connection to larger, male-run groups. By 1933, the women's ... History of Women's American ORT Roots, History and Growth - the History of ORT Past Presidents of American ORT History of Women's American ORT Past Presidents of Women's American ORT Women's American ORT (WAO) was founded October 12, 1927, to assist ORT in providing financial support to the ORT program serving Eastern European Jews. Most of the founders were wives of American ORT leaders. Florence Dolowitz was the wife of the treasurer of American ORT; Anna Boudin was the wife of lawyer Louis Boudin, who was also vice president of American ORT. Their marital connections were critical factors in creating an auxiliary organization to assist their husband’s work. The women's early support for ORT was limited to bazaars and concerts spearheaded by the wives of ORT leaders and their friends, led by Fannie Shluger and Mrs. Jacob Panken. A glamorous recital by Efram Zimbalist at Carnegie Hall in 1928 to help the Jews in Eastern Europe launched their activities as a women's auxiliary. The concert program listed as patrons some of the leading American Jewish women of German origin. Supporters also included Eastern European Jewish wives and leaders of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, reflecting the close support between the labor movement and ORT that would continue throughout its history. In its first years, the women helped raise funds for the ORT Reconstruction Committee, designed to help Eastern Europe's Jews recover from World War I. Only one woman sat on the American ORT National Committee at that time: Louise C. Taussie.
