Yehudit

Zicklin-Sidikman

founder and volunteer CEO

"I believe children who know how to protect themselves, set boundaries and respect boundaries, will become adults who respect and protect others also."

Museologist, director and career coach. Formerly CMO of The Israel Museum, and associate at Lord, an international consulting firm for the development of museums and cultural heritage. Formerly employed at the Museum of Modern Art in San- Francisco and the Historic Museum at San Hose, California. Former CEO of Kol HaIsha, a multicultural women’s NGO. Dorit has extensive experience as an active board member in various nonprofits in the fields of education, media, women's advocacy, and rights of medical patients, in Israel, Europe and the United States.

 

Dorit holds a BA in International Relations from the Hebrew University and an MA in Museum Studies from San Francisco State University, specializing in management of museums and NPO. She is a graduate of Tel Aviv university's Lahav executive program and is a certified personal, business, and career coach.  A Jerusalemite living in the Galilee, Dorit is married and a mother to three boys with deep feminist awareness.

 

"I joined the El HaLev board of directors because building a safer society for both women and men is a universal goal, and because instilling skills for self-defense and coping with physically and mentally violent situations through education is a social mission of utmost importance. Being personally aware of the eternal personal and familial damage that is caused by exposure to sexual violence, I thoroughly know how dangerous the lack of knowledge, awareness, and tools for self-defense can be.

The existence of El HaLev is crucial for changing views and mindsets regarding the importance of self-defense education and of instilling physical, behavioral, and verbal means for prevention, to be used in threatening situations and active danger. El HaLev's activity in Israel and its international influence make it a lifesaving organization. Instilling tangible and practical self-defense tools saves the lives of women and girls who learn to efficiently handle violent and risk situations that endanger their bodies and souls."

"As an educator for many years, and a mother of three boys who were involved in martial arts, I can see how education and martial arts go side-by-side. It paves a new path that helps overcome obstacles and allows everyone to express their voice in their own way. El HaLev is a place that offers this innovative path and my hope is that this winning combination will come to fruition more and more.."
