Yemenite Faces and Scenes: Photographs by Naftali Hilger

Intrepid photographer and photo-journalist Naftali Hilger traveled extensively in Yemen in the late 1980s and early 1990s photographing structures, street scenes, and the last remnants of Jewish life. These images—including of Yemenite children learning to read Torah upside-down in their father’s shop and a family relaxing in their diwan (salon)—depict an existence that has faded into history as the ever-shrinking community has found refuge in a government compound at Sana’a.

Episodes in Yemenite History: Paintings by Tiya Nachum

A series of eight paintings by the artist and sculptor Tiya Nachum of Encino, CA. The paintings reflect the tragedies and triumphs of Yemenite Jewish history, from the Mawza exile to the founding of the Inbal Dance Troupe by Sara Levy. Each painting tells a story and each story is a history onto itself.

About the Course


 The incidence of inequality in accessing health care services between men and women is a well- known phenomenon around the world. In many countries, women have no or limited access to health care.

 When we speak of women’s health, we need to use a holistic approach. We know that women are not a homogenous group: they represent different ethnicities, cultures, and socio-economic groups, yet we can find common characteristics among them: exposure to poverty, violence, and chronic illness, sometimes little or no health insurance; they are more likely to die from heart disease, cancer, alcohol abuse, suicide, cigarette smoking, and obesity.

 It is important that health care professionals and all levels of government be aware of these disparities and find ways of reducing these health inequalities in women, specially those living in remote areas. In the next decades, the international community is set to focus on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) such as goal number 3

 – “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”. These goals promote access for all for safe, effective, quality and affordable medicines and vaccines. Both of these major global agendas deal with health, including its economic and social aspects. In building and strengthening health services and systems for women, these issues need to be taken into account with regard to Primary Health Care (PHC). This course will focus on challenges in Health Care services, systems, and policies that affecting women.

 During the course, we will tackle issues such as scarcity of medical facilities, lack of primary health care, societal and cultural norms, and inadequate policies and funding that often make women reluctant to seek services. Furthermore, we will examine the human resources needed in different settings to provide the care and support needed by women.

 The state of Israel has succeeded in meeting challenges in the field of healthcare, due to a combination of innovation, technology, and national commitment, including policies and funding. These topics will be explored through different methods, such as lectures, professional visits and sharing of case studies.


•          To broaden the understanding of the gender gap and inequality in access to health care services for women

•          To spread awareness and provide tools and skills for creating better health care services, policies, financing, and management of those services

•          To view Israel’s models for accessing health care services for women.

•          To learn about support programs that provide outreach and education

Main Subjects

•          Policy making and governmental responsibility for improved health care

•          Maternal mortality as an overall indicator of the performance of a health system

•          Health Services Access: current initiatives to improve management of health services

•          Maternal and Child Health Medical ICT: offering technological solutions for women

About MCTC

The Golda Meir MASHAV “Carmel” International Training Center (MCTC) was founded by Golda Meir in Haifa in 1961. MCTC was the first of its kind in the domain of women’s empowerment, and since its inception has had a profound influence on both individuals and policy making. MCTC endeavors to provide professional women and men from developing countries and transitional societies with the necessary tools for women’s empowerment. It aims to enable women to contribute to the socio-economic development processes of their communities and consequently advance their status. To this end, MCTC conducts training activities, both in Israel and overseas, to advance women’s participation in public life.

TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON: THE YEAR IN YIDDISH SONG shines a brand-new musical light on traditional holiday tunes (“Dayeynu” and “Khad-gadyo” will never be the same!) and celebrates secular holidays as only the JPPC can (“Auld Lang Syne” and a Labor Day medley — in Yiddish!). On a more serious note, you’ll hear a moving new arrangement of the “Partisan’s Hymn” to honor Yom HaShoah.
