Who struggled the most in the Jewish community at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic? Join the National Affinity Group on Jewish Poverty and the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis for a data-centered conversation on the financial and material hardships experienced by members of the Jewish American community. First, we will hear from experts in the field on the pandemic's economic impact and who in Jewish communities struggled the most. Then, we will discuss the surprising and powerful effect that staying connected through Jewish community networks has in supporting both mental and financial well-being. Integrating data and theory, we’ll learn how the Jewish community has kept us feeling connected and supported through the pandemic, and learn how we can ensure others do not get left behind.
