Eshet Chayil and Avihayil for the Arab Population: Evaluation Study

By Hassan Suzan Daher, Nurit Strosberg

Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute, 2011

The Eshet Chayil ("woman of valor") program was developed by JDC-Israel in the 1990s to help Ethiopian-Israeli women integrate into the labor market and ensure they remained there. The program follows the approach that integration into working life is achieved by a gradual, supervised entry into employment. In light of the program's success with the Ethiopian-Israeli women, and since some of its components could be adapted to a range of target populations, the TEVET employment initiative decided to adjust the model and implement it for women and men in other populations (immigrants from the Caucasus and Bukhara, non-immigrant Jews, and Arabs).
