Israeli Arab women and children engage in an art project in Lakiya, Israel. The challenge of cultural norms, childcare responsibilities, language difficulties, and lack of workplace skills contribute to especially high rates of unemployment and underemployment among immigrant and minority women in Israel, including Ethiopian, Kavkazi, ultra-Orthodox, Druze, and Israeli Arab women. The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is working with the government of Israel to build a network of one-stop employment centers throughout the country to integrate Israeli Arabs, Bedouins, and Druze into the workforce. JDC’s interventions help women complete their education, get appropriate training, and eventual placement in rewarding jobs.
