Not your mortarboard, but rather something more interesting: nurses hats with stars of David on them (or Jewish Stars if you prefer).  Likely a reaction to the prevalence of the standard cross on medical uniforms in Europe and the United States at the turn of the 20th century, these symbols are emblematic of the early Zionist project in Palestine, which sought to support to bring western-style welfare institutions to the region.
Health was an important concern of the small Jewish settlement in Palestine in the early 20th century.  Henrietta Szold, an American Zionist and nurse influenced by the American public health and settlement house movements, founded Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, in 1912 to provide health services to the Jewish community in Palestine.  Hadassah established modern hospitals and created the first nursing and medical schools in Palestine.  Together with Kupat Holim (the health fund of the national labor movement), Hadassah helped lay the foundation for Israel’s modern health-care system.

Just because you haven’t read 54059845084508 books doesn’t mean you can’t call yourself a reader. The fact that you read is in itself a great accomplishment that many aren’t lucky enough to have.
