  • Receive an up-to-date analysis
  • Understand emergency mechanisms in a strategic perspective
  • Identify the gaps within the short, medium, and long term response efforts



  • Home Front Command Representation – Situation Report from the Field
  • Representatives of Organizations – The Israeli Forum for International Humanitarian Aid: Yotam Polizer, CEO of IsraAID, – An in-depth look at the evacuee centers, needs, responses and a long-term perspective
  • Voices from the Field – Gadi Yarkoni, Head of the Eshkol Regional Council – Pressing challenges and the role of regional councils in the current crisis


* If time permits, we will continue in conversation to discuss effective and sustainable ways of responding in philanthropy at this time.
