Pandemics have challenged religions throughout history. Faith leaders, informed by their beliefs, values and traditions, needed to address challenging public-health realities and take bold decisions and actions in the days of the AIDS pandemic, Ebola, Spanish Flu or the bubonic plague, as they do today.

The Workshop: Faith Leadership During Covid19 in Jerusalem: Responsibilities of Faith Leaders in Supporting National Efforts Fighting Pandemics and the Tools at Their Disposal will highlight the challenges and suggest practical solutions. It is the first in a series of events organized by the Jerusalem Impact Vaccination Initiative.
