Jerusalem Faculty of Expertise wins $9 m. to construct new college

The Jerusalem Faculty of Expertise (JCT) was awarded $9 million by the Helmsley Charitable Trust for the development of a brand new School of Life and Well being Sciences, based on a press launch.

The college shall be established within the new Tal Campus for Girls and features a nursing program, educating 1,000 college students per yr. This system was awarded the Well being Ministry’s Nationwide Prize for Excellence.  

Expressing hope the brand new college will go a good distance in direction of fixing the “unlucky scarcity of nurses in Israel,” Helmsley’s Trustee Sandor Frankel stated that they’re “dedicated to supporting high quality healthcare in Israel.”


“For the previous 50 years, JCT has been woven into the material of town,” stated Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Leon, “I’m assured that this grant and their new Tal Campus will solely amplify these contributions within the years to come back.” 

JCT is the primary in Israel to supply a nurse practitioner certification, in addition to a bachelor of science in bioinformatics.  

CT President Prof. Chaim Sukenik stated he’s “grateful to the Helmsley Belief for his or her beneficiant reward to our nursing division and to our new Tal Campus for Girls.”   

The late Leona Helmsley, who handed away in 2007, was a flamboyant Jewish-American real-state businesswoman. She left most of her immense wealth, roughly $four billion, to charity.
