Shared Society in Jerusalem: How We Live Together

Presented by: The Jerusalem Foundation of Canada and the ASPER Foundation

May 1, 7:30 pm


The Women’s Advocacy Group and Israel Engagement Committee welcome you to join us for a conversation between Michal Shaul Vulej and Reham Abu Snineh, women leaders in the Jerusalem Business Development Centre (MATI). Our speakers will share their experiences in East and West Jerusalem empowering under-served communities in workforce development and business opportunities and in creating entrepreneurial opportunities for women, new immigrants, ultra-Orthodox and East Jerusalem residents. Their stories will speak to the important work women are doing to focus on shared values to both build relationships between different communities and harness the power of that diversity as an example for all in Israel.

We will be honored to have the Consul General from the State of Israel, Idit Shamir, join us for this beautiful and meaningful program.


Ms. Vulej, Deputy CEO of MATI and Ms. Snineh, East Jerusalem Manager of MATI are on a cross-Canadian tour to tell their story, and through them, the story of Jerusalem. MATI was established with the support of the Jerusalem Foundation and this tour is sponsored by the Asper Foundation.

Michal Shaul Vulej has been with MATI for more than 20 years. She has vast experience and in-depth knowledge of business entrepreneurship, program and resource development, with an emphasis on disempowered populations in Jerusalem. She started her career as a senior consultant to the Israel Defense Forces School of Leadership Development and holds a BA and MA in Clinical Social Work from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.


Reham Abu Snineh has been the Director of MATI East Jerusalem since 2016. She has extensive experience in strategic planning, mentoring and business coaching. She holds a BA in law from Al-Quds University and MA in Gender and Diversity from Bir Zeit University.
