Empowering small business owners with skills and support

ORT JET was established in 2005 to create a support structure for small Jewish business owners in South Africa. ORT JET aims to facilitate business growth and financial sustainability using the business knowledge, resources and skills that already exist within our community.

By empowering Jewish business people, ORT JET significantly contributes to a healthier business environment.
The organisation capitalises on the business acumen existing within the Jewish community and offers a very unique and proactive solution to the financial challenges facing business people in a tough economic environment.

As a division  of ORT South Africa, ORT JET operates according to ORT’s philosophy of ‘Educating for Life’,and is working towards educating entrepreneurs, business people and job seekers who will then be secure in their ability to provide for themselves and their families.
