While AACI’s Shira Pransky Project is committed to making the Israeli healthcare system more accessible for English-speakers, it is always important and recommended for anyone living in Israel to master the Hebrew language to the best of their ability.

The following glossary of key health-related Hebrew vocabulary can come in very handy especially if and when you find yourself struggling with the Israeli healthcare system!

Very special thanks to Joel Yaron Publishing for providing this valuable resource, which was taken from the book English Hebrew by Subject.
