The Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT) was pleased welcomed the Honourable Jill Dunlop, Ontario Minister of Colleges and Universities, to campus in late January during her first visit to Israel.

JCT President Professor Chaim Sukenik, JCT Rector Professor Dan Bouhnik, JCT Vice President Daniel Fogel, and JCT professors conducting cutting-edge research with Canadian counterparts, shared details of current research underway and provided a tour of the campus.

Canadian students, studying in English in the college’s International Program, as well as Larry Zeifman had the opportunity to speak with the Minister about their experiences with JCT. Mr. Zeifman is a long-time member of the board of Canadian Friends of JCT.

Fogel spoke about the college’s top-ranked Selma Jelinek School of Nursing and together, he and Minister Dunlop discussed the role higher education plays in solving the nursing shortages in both Israel and Ontario. 

Fogel also highlighted the numerous awards JCT graduates have won from Israel’s Ministry of Defense, how JCT empowers underserved populations such as ultra-orthodox students, religious women, and Ethiopians. The campus tour concluded with a visit to an advanced electro-optics laboratory and the LevTech entrepreneurship center.

“It was a pleasure to visit the JCT campus and learn about how the college is prioritizing student success, research, innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Minister Dunlop.

She observed that “Ontario, like Israel, is committed to supporting ground-breaking research and is a leader in research excellence. Strengthening global relationships with long-standing innovation partners like JCT will spur new ideas and partnerships that will benefit both jurisdictions for years to come.”

JCT recently collaborated with the University of Toronto’s Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, which developed Israel’s first program in health informatics, a cutting-edge discipline that enhances patient care by leveraging big data. As such, Israel’s Council for Higher Education last year approved the Samson Health Informatics Master’s Program.

“We know that the social and diplomatic relationships between Canada and Israel date back to Israel’s founding. The advancement of educational, political and business relationships to benefit both countries are crucial, and I celebrate JCT’s and the Ontario government’s moves in these areas. It was an honour to participate in this important visit by Minister Dunlop to JCT, one of Israel’s truly great and important schools of higher learning,” said Zeifman.

Additionally, Dr. Yehoshua Socol of JCT’s Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department presented his collaborations with colleagues at the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories and McMaster University.

“It was a privilege and pleasure to host Minister Dunlop and show her the many ways we educate and empower our student body,” said Fogel. “Our successful collaborations with Canadian institutes are stellar examples of the partnership JCT has with Canada. We look forward to future collaborations.”
