Dr. Yehuda Sabiner is a graduate of the Technion’s Rappaport Faculty of Medicine. He is the first Israeli-born member of the ultra-Orthodox community to graduate from medical school.
Growing up a Hasid, Dr. Sabiner’s secular education ended when he was 13. In order to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a doctor, he attended the Technion’s Mechina, a preparatory program that helps ultra-Orthodox students catch up and pursue higher education.
Since graduating in 2019, Dr. Sabiner has begun his medical internship at Sheba Medical Center in Israel’s Tel HaShomer. He has also been encouraging other ultra-Orthodox to pursue medicine.
