1913 – The Hebrew-Speaking Physicians’ Society is established in Jerusalem

The Jewish physicians residing in Jerusalem established The Hebrew-Speaking Physicians’ Society. Its founders were the new immigrants Dr. Arye Behem, Dr. Zeev Breene, Dr. Arye Goldberg, Dr. Arye Feigenbaum, Dr. A. Shimoni-Mekler and Dr. Miriam Nofach. The main issue on the agenda was whether the Hebrew-speaking physicians should differentiate themselves from the general physician population. Ultimately a compromise was reached according to which the society would operate under the name The Hebrew-Speaking Physicians’ Society and its membership would also be open to Hebrew-speaking physicians who did not reside in Israel.
