In these weeks of crisis, Agudah has redoubled its efforts on behalf of Klal Yisrael, advocating for sanctity of life, cutting-edge research, and federal and state funding. We’ve answered and advised thousands of community members on pikuach nefesh she’eilos, issues of unemployment, and financial and legal counsel, providing guidance and relief in these turbulent times.
Our patient advocates have guided families through delicate end-of-life matters and pikuach nefesh she’eilos, supporting those stricken by the virus with utmost respect and dignity. Agudah also prompted a life-saving plasma research project, working with hospitals and mobilizing potential donors throughout the country, providing hope to scores of patients and their families.
Between our call centers and virtual seminars, the Agudah has answered and advised tens of thousands of community members on issues of unemployment and family leave, resolving constituent questions, providing financial advice, legal guidance, and vital relief.
Agudah has redoubled its efforts on behalf of Klal Yisrael, lobbying for federal and state funding for businesses, yeshivos and schools. We’ve also created and mobilized task forces in 30 states, representing Jewish communities nationwide on issues related to weddings, mikvaos, shuls and schools.
We’re harnessing our most potent resource - the Kol Torah. Our Torah Projects team coordinated an array of meaningful programs that reached hundreds of thousands of men, women and children worldwide, including a virtual Yarchei Kallah, various webinars, and shiurim. Our youth programs, Masmidei Hasiyum, Bnos and Pirchei, also stepped up their programming with hotlines and incentivized learning.
When thousands of business owners were left high and dry,
When hundreds of patients faced end-of-life crises,
When yeshivos and schools were met with brick walls,
