Remaining engaged during this trying time is critical. With the closing of schools and institutions and much of the world practicing social distancing, the World Jewish Congress will be rolling out a number of new virtual programs designed to ensure that activists working from home have a steady stream of timely educational and enriching content about the issues that they care about.
Each week the World Jewish Congress invites a different guest to join us on Facebook Live to talk about a wide range of issues including the United Nations’ fight against antisemitism, the latest from the field of Holocaust education, Israel’s battle to end the bias at the Human Rights Council, the effects of COVID-19 on Jewish communities around the world, and more.
