  • Day School and COVID-19

    Monday, April 06, 2020 at 01:00 PM EDT

    How is the coronavirus pandemic impacting Jewish day schools now, and what will its future impact be?

    Join us for an open discussion between funders and experts in the field. Presenters will share day schools' needs as they look at what we know now and what are the anticipated needs. We will discuss what still needs to be learned, what is currently happening, what gaps need to be filled, and explore opportunities for partnership and collaboration. Please come to the conversation prepared to share your questions, current thinking, and any actions you may have already taken.

  • Israeli Tech Ecosystem and COVID-19

    Tuesday, April 07, 2020 at 12:00 PM EDT

    Responding to requests by countries and organizations around the world, Start-Up Nation Central has published a growing index of Israeli technologies helping the world combat coronavirus, and launched “CoronaTech,” an online knowledge-sharing platform facilitating rapid collaboration and implementation of innovative Israeli anti-virus solutions.

    Join JFN's President and CEO Andres Spokoiny and JFN Board Member Terry Kassel, in a discussion with Start-Up Nation Central CEO Professor Eugene Kandel as they focus on tools philanthropists can use to deal with this crisis. They will discuss what the Israeli tech ecosystem needs right now, how funders can get involved, and provide tips on how to identify Israeli companies doing real work.
