World Jewish Congress
In The Time of Covid 19

Supporting Jewish Communities Across The Globe

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Jewish Congress is fully committed to supporting our Jewish communities across the globe as they confront unprecedented challenges caused by this global crisis. We are doing everything in our power to ensure that all Jews everywhere, individually and as communities, are secure, defended and protected as we all go through the vulnerabilities of what we hope and pray will be a short-lived new reality.

From Our Communities

The COVID-19 crisis has forced Jewish communities across the globe to redirect their activities to the digital sphere to enable them to provide critical up-to-date information and resources on urgent matters: the supply and accessibility of kosher for Passover food; religious rulings pertaining to video conferencing to conduct a virtual Seder; guidelines for burials and mourning practices while in isolation; and important, potentially life-saving community updates. They and the members of the WJC’s Jewish Diplomatic Corps have truly embraced the ancient Talmudic principle of Kol Israel Arevim Zeh la-Zeh, all Jews are responsible for one another.
