Note: This is not a JFN event, but we are sharing it on behalf of the Leichtag Foundation, a JFN member.

On Thursday night, Israel experienced one of its worst tragedies ever during the joyous Lag B’omer celebration at Mt. Meron. Besides the 45 people who lost their lives, hundreds more remain hospitalized with critical injuries. One in three adult Ultra Orthodox Charedim were at Mt. Meron, leaving few families untouched by grief. The impacts of this trauma will be long-lasting.

Hear directly from the Ultra Orthodox Charedi civil society leaders and entrepreneurs who mobilized an immediate response to support their deeply affected community in the aftermath of the devastating incident at Mt. Meron in Israel last week. Speakers are Ultra Orthodox Charedi members of the Jerusalem Model, trusted changemaking partners of Leichtag Foundation. These influential leaders are addressing their community's needs 24/6, and will share up-to-the-minute information about the local situation, elements of the tragedy, and community-centric opportunities for support.
