      ISRAELI-ARAB WOMEN TO SERVE IN NATIONAL SERVICE PROGRAMS

      Israeli Arab women will soon take part in the National Service
      Program, the Israeli newpaper YEDIOT AHARONOT reported. The National
      Service Program was originally created to allow Jewish Orthodox women to convert
      mandatory army service into national service, usually in
      humanitarian fields such as medicine or education. This is the
      first time the program is offered to Israeli Arabs, who will
      perform these services in their own communities.
      The program will begin in the city of Taibeh, following an
      agreement last week between the Mayor of Taibeh Issam Masrawa and
      Office of the Prime Minister representative Uzi Gadur. Over the
      weekend, Masrawa issued a statement calling on young women in
      Taibeh to join the National Service Program. Officials in the
      Office of the Prime Minister said on Monday that they are
      considering expanding Israeli Arab women's involvement in the
      program.
