Crisis Response – Coronavirus


When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in early 2020, it raised unprecedented challenges and difficulties throughout the entire world. The Fellowship acted immediately, establishing an emergency fund to assist Israel’s hospitals and to continue to provide basic care to Jewish populations in need. In support of this effort, The Fellowship mobilized its donors to raise funds to help people cope with both the short and long-term effects of the pandemic.
