Here’s what’s on the agenda:
The mental health of our communities.
As we continue to reopen post-pandemic, the mental health issues that were both revealed and exacerbated by the pandemic – particularly with our young people – take center stage. We’ll hear from thought leaders and experts within the field. And we’ll explore how, despite the critical shortage and the affordability of mental health care professionals, we can provide maximum support to our communities and help to alieve this crisis and better recognize the stressors young people face.
The continuing rise of violent antisemitism.
The next 50 years of flourishing Jewish communities, depend on the ability of all our people to safely and securely participate in Jewish life. Together, we will dive into this crucial challenge and examine what actions we can take to make a significant impact here at home and worldwide.
Answering the critical needs of our Ukrainian brothers and sisters.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine forced tens of thousands of our extended Jewish family to flee their homes, and tens of thousands more to be displaced. They’re calling on us to help them rebuild their lives and build Jewish community whether they resettle here in North America, in Israel, or return home to Ukraine to create their thriving Jewish community once again. And we Lions, the world’s most dynamic philanthropic women, are joining together to determine how we can best answer that call.
