The Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT), an Orthodox Jewish college, is making waves in Israel’s male-dominated hi-tech industry. Specifically, Machon Tal (The Tal Institute), JCT’s Women’s Institute of Engineering, is helping women from the full gamut of Israeli society to earn degrees that will propel them into top positions in engineering, computer science and biotech fields.
My wife Suzy and I will never forget our wedding day. It was not just the uplifting ceremony and beautiful party that left an indelible mark. Some life-altering advice that we received from one of our guests informed and shaped our lives from that day forward.
