Briefings on Jewish Poverty and Covid-19: Focus on Jews of Color (Fourth in a Series)

Join us for an important conversation with the leaders of the Jews of Color Initiative COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. The session will provide an overview of the needs of vulnerable Jews of Color and Jewish communal professionals of color amid the pandemic. In addition, panelists will share lessons learned from initial funding rounds and highlight opportunities for how the Jewish community can better support Jews of color moving forward.

Over the coming months the National Affinity Group on Jewish Poverty is hosting a series of webinars and virtual meetups to discuss the many challenges the coronavirus pandemic has created for Jews facing poverty and the agencies that serve them. We will 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. 

Introductions will be made by Paula B. Pretlow, Trustee, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
