Lycée ORT Maurice Grynfogel, Toulouse

In 1962, M. Maurice Grynfogel and members of the governing body of the Toulouse Jewish community campaigned to open an ORT college in Toulouse, when Jews started arriving from Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.

Mr Grynfogel made available a large villa for the college to open in. Premises were then transferred to Colomiers, where they have remained until now. Mr Grynfogel became the Headmaster of the ORT college in Toulouse and remained in position until 1984.
