NEW APPOINTMENTS TO THE BOARD OF PROJECT ROZANA ISRAEL
Three new appointments have been made to the Board of Project Rozana Israel. We welcome…
Dr Janan Faraj Falah, senior lecturer at the Arab College of Education in Haifa.
Israeli Sana Zayadna, a psychotherapist.
Dr Elias J. Issaq, Chief of Urology at Holy Family Hospital, Nazareth.
Project Rozana Israel now has its most diverse board yet for the organization, in terms of gender, background, ethnic and religious affiliations.
Israel is currently also appointing sub-committees to support the board in management, fundraising and public relations, strategy and implementation, medical and general peace-building endeavors.
Among her many distinguished achievements, Dr Janan Faraj Falah is a senior lecturer at the Arab College of Education in Haifa, a researcher at the University of Haifa, chair of the Academic Committee at the Galilee College, Ghetto Fighters’ Center and academic Center for Conservation in Acre.
She is also author of ‘The Druze Woman’.
In 2003, she founded and managed the ‘Vision of the Women of Acre’ association to advance the status of women in Acre and the north. Recently, the association led a project to support Arab and Jewish diabetics, the first of its kind in Israel.
A firm believer in the power of women to change the destiny of humanity for the better, Janan established the Women’s House for Peace in Acre.
She was a recipient of the Rappaport Prize in 2016.
Sana Zayadna is a psychotherapist from the north of Israel who abandoned computer teaching in favour of behavioural studies. She received an MA in educational counselling and spent three years in a private clinic as a family therapist.
Sana is committed to developing and implementing projects in the youth mental health space. She believes that developing projects for children who transition to teenagers and then adults, enables them to move beyond the conflict that can too easily shape our lives.
A specialist in urology since 1983, Dr Elias J. Issaq is Chief of Urology at Holy Family Hospital in Nazareth, northern Israel. He is a member of the Palestinian Association of Urology, and the Israeli Association of Urology. He is a past member of the European Association of Urology.
Dr Issaq is a past president of the Rotary Club of Nazareth, past president of the Lions Club of Nazareth, and past member of the Christian House Institution in Haifa.
He hails from a proud Palestinian family and is committed to bringing Israelis and Palestinians together, especially in the field of medicine.
We look forward to introducing six new committee members, all highly qualified and committed, who have joined Project Rozana Israel to augment the Board’s work and programs.
