What is ORT you ask?

ORT is the world’s largest Jewish education and vocational training non-governmental organisation. Every year, the ORT Gala Event helps raise valuable funds for Jewish day schools. 

What does that have to do with Akiva? How does our school benefit?

Thanks to a very generous donor, all Jewish schools are offered the opportunity to raise money by selling ads, sponsorship and tickets to the event, with all funds returning directly back to their school. To make it clear, 100% of funds raised through Akiva, come to Akiva!

Last year, we were able to raise $50,000 and hope to surpass that total this year.

We hope we can count on your support and perhaps spread the word to your friends as well.

Please keep in mind that for every ticket, sponsorship or ad you buy, 100% of the proceeds come back to the schools. We have no cost for the event and would love to have great representation.

Looking forward to a great night out together!
