COVID-19 has been at the focus of our lives for the past six months. Our lives have taken on a “new normal” that would have been impossible to believe in February of this year.

Understanding the need for additional guidance, Agudath Israel partnered with United Task Force, in conjunction with the many Jewish agencies of the Task Force, to host a virtual event focusing on “Maintaining your Sanity” immediately after the yomim tovim, at this most challenging time when parents are adjusting to the new school year.

The event was chaired by Boruch B. Bender, president of Achiezer, who offered introductory remarks. The program covered a series of topics together with a discussion for parents by a panel of professionals, namely, Dr. David Pelcovitz, Azrieli Graduate School, and Dr. Yitzchok Shindler, CEO Pesach Tikvah. There was a fascinating Q&A with the panelists after the program.

Agudath Israel looks forward to hosting more of these events.
