Join us to hear from leaders in the US and in Israel
During the past few months, the world has watched the unprecedented Covid 19 crisis unfold marking a turning point in the way relevant actors manage a humanitarian crisis on a global scale. In the US and Israel, the pandemic and the responses to it have been vivid but the crisis is not over. This is a critical time to bring our collective intelligence together, to learn from one another and support the emergence of new, best practices with the goal of improving our fight against the virus and its societal impact.
Join us and hear from leaders and experts from the American and Israeli non-profit and philanthropic sectors, as they pave the way for the emergency management of tomorrow.
The simultaneous phenomenon of lockdown, full homes to feed every day and a major economic crisis have suddenly disrupted the lives of millions. For those most vulnerable, unemployment, closed schools and outside risks of contamination significantly restricted access to the most basic need: food. How did the third sector provide a rapid response while the State was slow to react?
For many elderly and holocaust survivors, day to day activities are already a fragile balance of ensuring access to basic needs, health services and a social support system used to prevent loneliness. Small changes to that balance can destabilize and threaten their lives. With lockdowns in place, how can organizations cope with minimizing the impact of new restrictions while continuing to provide essential services?
With a public health crisis of this magnitude, a collective response is the only way to effectively manage the pandemic. However, the response must be tailored to the specific needs of every community, including ones with unique needs like the Ultra-Orthodox community.
