Watch All Six Sessions in our Briefing Series on Covid and Jewish Poverty

Since May, the National Affinity Group on Jewish Poverty has been hosting webinars and virtual meetups to discuss the many challenges the coronavirus pandemic has created for Jews facing poverty and the agencies that serve them. In these webinars, we hear the needs from the service providers on the ground supporting our front lines, share best practices and information, and strategize on ways to respond collectively.

Each webinar is moderated by Susan Ditkoff of The Bridgespan Group Boston.
