One of NA’AMAT USA’s finest contributions is the Women’s Health Center in Karmiel, the first of its kind in Israel. This was made possible through a generous grant from Adele and Maurice Weiner/NA’AMAT Pittsburgh Endowment Fund of the United Jewish Federation Foundation. This comprehensive center filled a void in the health services rendered in Israel’s Central Galilee.
Charitable throughout their lives, the Weiner’s were longtime supporters of the Jewish Community. A teacher, Adele had a strong interest in children and orphans. She and her brother worked jointly in commercial printing. Their commitment to women and children translated into an enduring legacy.
The Center offers an array of education and counseling vital to building awareness about common female health issues so women and girls will be able to detect and ultimately prevent illness. The Center boasts the first mammography machine in the area. The Center provides educational programs on childbirth, eating disorders, prevention of osteoporosis, family planning, menopause and nutrition. There are also individual and group therapy programs for post-natal and menopausal women and support groups for cancer patients and their families.
