A seminar for raising awareness of MS

The Israeli Multiple Sclerosis society cares for MS patients belonging to diverse sectors of population that make up the State of Israel: Arab speaking Israelis, Israelis of different minorities, Haredi (ultra-orthodox) communities, and more... The Society adapts its activities to meet the various requirements and customs of the various sectors. For example, two seminar days are held in Arabic. In 2018, the Society held a special seminar for MS patients from the Haredi(ultra-orthodox) sector. This seminar is being conducted for rabbis who are opinion leaders, and have a significant influence in the Haredi communities, where diseases are a private and confidential matter, and turning for help and support is usually based on guidance provided by rabbis.
