The contest aims to increase engagement with Jewish learning, to develop new skills through project-based learning, to identify talented students and to develop their creativity and skills through animation.
For students from grades one to nine, the project integrates Jewish education with technology and themes can include traditional Jewish stories, parables and proverbs. Students may use stop-motion, Flash or other software animation techniques to create finished products which are submitted to the judging panel.
The winning videos are published online and shared with schools globally to celebrate the talents of ORT’s younger students, educate their peers about their common Jewish heritage and to motivate new students to participate in the future.contact our education team to find out more

“The children come home and explain to their parents about the holidays – what to eat, what to pray. This is how the parents learn.”
“This program brings value to ORT schools because it increases the motivation of students to study Jewish traditions and history, helps talented students to develop their creative interest in the field of ICT and to implement new knowledge in the production of films for Jewish education.”
