Morbidity rates in the city are significantly lower compared to Tel Aviv and Haifa, and rates of successful treatment are among the highest in Israel.</p>||To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Jerusalem Municipality and the Hadassah Medical Center will hold an information event at the municipality building auditorium on 18.11.2018 (Sunday), from 930 to 1200. The event is intended for female Jerusalem Municipality employees, and during the day free, anonymous screenings will be conducted by Hadassah doctors.Jerusalem Municipality Chief of Staff Michal Shalem will open the event. Afterwards, Prof. Tamar Peretz, Director of the Sharett Institute of Oncology at the Hadassah Medical Center, will review the screening process, the importance of early detection and treatment methods. Other experts will present the various perspectives of dealing with the disease – both mental and physical, as well as those which concern the patient, her family and those around her. In addition, the employees will hear the personal story of a patient named Ruth, who was diagnosed, treated and had successful treatment. At the end of the event, a panel of experts will answer audience questions and provide extensive information on the subject.Jerusalem Municipality Chief of Staff Michal Shalem explained that, "The Jerusalem Municipality attaches great importance to raising awareness of the struggle against breast cancer. Each November in recent years we illuminate the municipality building with pink light in an effort to increase awareness and to cause many women in Jerusalem to get screened and understand that a simple exam could save lives. Thanks to early detection, treatment rates in Jerusalem are the highest in the country, but we must still continue and encourage younger and older women alike to be screened every year. It is our duty and our responsibility." Stabilization of Morbidity Rates and Low Rates in JerusalemProf. Tamar Peretz noted that the trends in morbidity rates in Israel show that up to five years ago, an increase in the incidence of the disease was observed. However, the trend has changed and rates have now stabilized. Nonetheless, there is an increase in the incidence of the disease and a decline in the morbidity age among women born in the country, both of Jewish and Arab origin.Morbidity rates in Jerusalem are significantly lower than those in Tel Aviv and Haifa, but there are many young women being treated for breast cancer at the Hadassah Medical Center. At the same time, rates of successful treatment of the disease in Jerusalem are higher than those around the country. Prof. Peretz also emphasized that demographically, patients being treated at Hadassah's Sharett Institute come from all areas of the city and from communities located around Jerusalem. Some 30% of patients come from other parts of the country. In addition, there is also a clinic for healthy women who have a high risk of getting the disease."Every woman understands that it is important to diagnose breast cancer early on," said Peretz. "With that, it's clear that there is a certain difficulty in getting screened. We are familiar with the hard-working residents of Jerusalem, and among their many activities, the women of the city can't always find the time to get screened. Therefore, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we provide them with access to screening and information. We will arrive at the Jerusalem Municipality from Hadassah as an entire team in order to enable women to hear, to know and to be screened," she concluded.||11/18/2018 10:00:00 PM|
|Jerusalem is Fighting Violence Against Women||https://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/JerusalemFightingViolence.aspx||Jerusalem is Fighting Violence Against Women||<img alt=" " src="/RecreationandCulture/tarbutuopnay/PublishingImages/EliminationofViolenceAgainstWomen.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />||<p>Many events for different audiences and age groups will be held in Jerusalem in November in order to increase awareness of violence against women and bring about change. The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will be observed around the world on November 25.</p>||Events held throughout the city will include workshops, professional conferences, exhibitions and other discussions. According to United Nations figures, at least one in three women worldwide has been physically assaulted or otherwise abused during her lifetime – usually by someone she knows. Michal Shalem, Jerusalem Municipality Chief of Staff, emphasized she was happy that, "the discourse and awareness about setting clear boundaries against physical and verbal violence against women is on the rise. More and more women are stepping forward and saying 'no more'. There is zero tolerance towards violence. In Jerusalem, the policy in this matter is clear. All the activities and events are another stepping stone in our efforts to denounce these phenomena and make the environment in which we live safe and respectful for women. It is our duty as a society." Ariela Rajwan, deputy director general and head of the Culture and Sports Administration, said that, "Jerusalem has been blessed with dozens of women's organizations that promote and advance gender equality. I myself am the Deputy Director General of the Jerusalem Municipality, and I proudly head a department for the development of women's leadership in all communities and ages, with the aim of instilling Jerusalem's public discourse throughout the entire country and eliminating all phenomena of violence against women." One of the most difficult and disturbing aspects of the phenomenon is the conspiracy of silence. A woman can be the victim of ongoing violence without anyone seeing or knowing about her distress. Many women experience the violence acted out on them as a source of shame, sometimes even blaming themselves and taking responsibility for their attacker's actions. They hide the pain and carry it with them as an onerous secret, sometimes for the rest of their lives. When the attackers are family members or someone familiar, - the conspiracy of silence becomes even stronger, and these women's ability to seek help and assistance and to stop the harm is immeasurably reduced. Orly Ben-Aharon, the mayor's advisor for the advancement of women's position, discussed the Jerusalem Municipality's actions in the matter of violence against women. "A process of disclosure has begun in recent years women around the world are starting to talk and rise up in various ways against the past norms of violence, which to our regret and anger still exist in society. The #MeToo movement began a year ago and refuses to subside. On the contrary, it is only deepening and expanding. The circles of exposure give us more power and reveal another face of violence, which was actually known to everyone; and yet was for too long seen as a given – an irreparable social disease." She added that, "During the past month, following harrowing murders of women, there has been a nationwide outcry – and in Jerusalem we joined forces. Various organizations and groups are advancing a national move to combat the phenomenon, and we must continue to do so together. During November, many different events will be held, for different audiences and age groups, aimed at increasing public awareness. Together, we are breaking the conspiracy of silence. And every voice matters. Every voice forms another crack in the wall and enables more women to hear that they are not to blame and they are not alone."

It is part of the campaign led by the Municipality of Jerusalem for raising awareness of co-living solutions, also including a conference discussing these solutions. Arising from the realization that the current housing market caters only to families, the ultimate goal is to adapt the co-living model to Israeli reality, including bringing government housing regulations up-to-date. Co-living 90 percent of our time in 40 percent of our living spaceCo-living is a growing housing trend around the world. Cohabitation in cities started out as a community co-housing model in Scandinavia in the 1970s-1980s, when residents came together to purchase and manage communal housing solutions.This model has been adopted around the world, and some of the most successful co-living projects include Carmel Place (Ollie) in Manhattan, 5 buildings at Old Oak in London, and communities in Brooklyn, Washington, and Pittsburgh.Co-living redefines housing as a commodity and a service. It rests on the realization that 90 percent of the time, people are using only 40 percent of their living space. Co-living means shrinking personal space and increasing communal areas instead.Practically speaking, the housing model offers rent-only units with shared public spaces, operated by a management company offering serviced living, including maintenance, resident screening, and a rich community experience.Renters enjoy a communal life, but as opposed to the older co-living community model, do not take part in ownership or establishment of either the building or the community. Co-habitation is now a new market commodity – a rewarding residential experience for young renters, and a lucrative opportunity for developers.Communal areas in the building include a laundry room doubling as a lounge, a large common room with seating areas and a dining area, and a residents' club for parties, events, and movie screenings. The living units come fully-furnished with a bed, a sofa, etc., and equipped with a fridge, a television, and other amenities.Residents pay a monthly fee covering rent, community events, personal unit utilities (water, gas, electricity, city tax), communications (cable TV, internet), cleaning services (twice a month), and a maintenance fee. The conference on co-living will be held at the Koresh Hotel in Jerusalem on Monday, July 30.The co-living pod will be on display at Safra Square on July 30 – August 15, 2018.For further details, please contact Ravit Carmeli at Stern-Ariely-Saar PR, on 052-6678357.Competition terms and conditionsFurther details available on the Airbnb site||7/28/2018 9:00:00 PM|

Mayor Nir Barkat, said: "The large investments that we have made in the fields of tourism, culture, and high-tech directly project the success of Jerusalem's businesses. They are an important economic growth engine, and I am proud that our efforts are bearing fruit".</p>||Prior to the elections in the local authorities, the Israel branch of Dun & Bradstreet rated the local authorities that are the best for businesses, and their performance in accordance with the heads of the local authorities. Jerusalem was ranked first among the large cities as the best city for business. It pushed Petah Tikva to second place, while Tel Aviv was ranked third, after it was ranked last year in second place. In the company's statement, it was written that "in thegreater Jerusalem area, the development of business is positive, and even exceeds that of the central region". Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat explained that "Jerusalem's rating as the best city for businesses in Israel reflects the return of Israel's capital city to its natural location as a leading and groundbreaking city. The great investments we have made in the fields of tourism, culture, and high-tech directly project the success of Jerusalem's businesses. Dun and Bradstreet's ranking joins the international rankings of Jerusalem as one of the cities with the most advanced high-tech in the world. Alongside this, we have led revolutions in introducing various sectors into the employment cycle in numbers that increase from year to year. We have implemented reforms in business licensing and in advancing the city's creative status. We have set up hubs that provide training, we have created "Green Lanes" for businesses, we have built thousands of new hotel rooms, and we are setting up a business district at the entrance to the city providing 60,000 jobs. Jerusalem businesses are an important engine of economic growth, and I am proud that our efforts and our focus on these areas are bearing fruit."The Jerusalem Municipality enumerates a series of processes that have brought Jerusalem to the top of the list decreasing the bureaucracy and the procedures, developing and strengthening the local economy in the neighborhoods, developing the city's creative status, developing the high-tech sector in cooperation with the Jerusalem Development Authority; professional training that advances businesses towards the digital age; creating a cultural scene in the business environment, and customer service for businesses that includes close attention to public inquiries, a unique start-up service for businesses that appeals to new businesses and entrepreneurs, and provides support and guidance until the opening and licensing of the business, as well as municipal mediation services that were launched just recently.||7/1/2018 9:00:00 PM|
