JCT Male Nursing Grads

This year 215 new JCT students received graduation certificates and are now ready to embark on positions in management, health and nursing professions. This year JCT also certified 19 male graduates from the nursing department. The first of its kind in Israel, the new and unique program opened in 2015 and is revolutionizing career possibilities available to religious men.

The ceremony’s guest of honor was Professor Yonatan Halevi, co-director of Shaare Zedek Medical Center, who remarked: “The connection between JCT and Shaare Zedek is that both are proudly known as religious institutions. Ever prior to its construction, the hospital’s founding constitution was dedicated to ensuring that the institution’s management would forever operate according to Jewish law.

We expect doctors, nurses and anyone who comes in contact with patients to make decisions from a place of compassion, empathy, and sensitivity to others. As Maimonides wrote: “He who sees the patient must be happy”. He understood then what we are beginning to understand today: the body and the soul are completely interconnected; giving joy and hope to a patient offers immediate relief and directly impacts their chances of healing. A robot may be able to help provide more accurate treatments, but it can never replace the value of human empathy that is exchanged between a doctor and a patient”.
