Haredi Society in Israel During COVID19

Tuesday, May 05, 2020, 11:30am – 1:00pm EDT

*18:30-20:00 Jerusalem

Join us for a discussion on the unique needs relating to Israel’s ultra-Orthodox society in light of the Corona crisis. We will address the prominent aspects that emerge in the face of the crisis: the socioeconomic development of ultra-Orthodox society, the engagement of local authorities and local leadership, and the role of Haredi civil-society organizations in providing solutions tailored to the needs of ultra-Orthodox society.

We will hear from leading experts and professionals in the field led by the Haredi Institute for Public Affairs and joined by the Haredi Employment Coalition (a partnership started by JFN through members of the network) and followed by JFN funders involved with the philanthropic efforts supporting the Haredi society.
