Academic Studies for Women Combined with Midrasha Studies
Machon Tal, JCT's Women's Institute of Engineering in Jerusalem, established in September 2000, is the first college of higher learning to offer the opportunity for religious women to combine Judaic studies with academic degrees in high-tech engineering and marketing and enter Israel’s high-tech industries as professional engineers. Much encouragement for JCT's establishment of Machon Tal has been given by the Israel Council for Higher Education, who positively regards JCT’s contribution to the high-tech workforce in Israel as well as the opportunity provided to this sector of Israel's society to be able to study subjects in this field.
Presently situated in temporary rented facilities in Jerusalem, JCT is seeking to build a women’s campus, which will include academic buildings, laboratories, dormitories, recreational facilities and a baby crèche. This will enable Machon Tal to expand and provide urgently needed academic opportunities to women that will enable them to find employment in the high-tech and business community.
