The Pittsburgh Jewish community has a robust and well-resourced safety net of services to meet episodic or sudden needs and prevent Jewish households from going over the economic “cliff.” The underlying assumption of this type of system is that households will, for the most part, be temporarily “knocked off course” and will require short-term or limited assistance to get back on their feet. The economic implications of COVID-19 present a very different scenario. Many more households have been thrust into economic insecurity and the projected timeframe of their financial recovery is longer term and will require services and supports that continue over an extended period of time. And the network of services and resources available within the Jewish community will need to adjust accordingly.
Join the Jewish Funders Network as we explore the findings and key recommendations from the Cohen Center of Modern Jewish Studies’ soon-to-be released report: Making Us Whole: Understanding and Addressing COVID-19 Related Economic Insecurity in Jewish Pittsburgh.
Raimy Rubin, Manager of Impact Measurement, Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
