On behalf of the World Jewish Congress, please accept my gratitude for your continued dedication to our work on behalf of the Jewish people.
We have been monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus around the world with great concern, and hope that you and your family are healthy and safe. It is in times like these when the strength of our community means the most, and we are reminded of the threads that connect us each to one another, no matter where in the world we are.
We are acutely aware of the significant impact this is having on everyone, including our affiliated communities, organizations, and staff. We are taking precautions to protect the health and safety of our staff and communities. We have postponed all WJC global events over the next several weeks, and WJC’s crisis management team is in constant communication with our communities to help them prepare for, and deal with, uncertain times ahead.
Please know that everyone at the World Jewish Congress is thinking of you and wishing you well during these trying times.
Ronald S. Lauder
