MANAGING THE IMPACT OF CORONAVIRUS ON OUR COMMUNITY
 
The Jewish Federation of Edmonton mobilization around the coronavirus has been a top priority, with much attention focused on the safety and wellbeing of our community as the key objective. While we are dealing with a dynamic and challenging situation as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread worldwide. We have created an information hub to provide resources and practical advice to help you stay informed.
 
Our goal is to facilitate a coordinated approach to maintaining a safe environment at Jewish institutions, ensuring the continued vibrancy of Jewish life in our community during this challenging time.

The Hub will be updated regularly over the coming days and weeks, so please check back often. You are also encouraged to reach out to Tal Toubiana, Federation’s Head of Security for more information or questions.
