“Shall There Be No Needy?” Jews Working to End Poverty

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Almost half the world – more than 3 billion people – live on less than $2.50 a day. More live in extreme poverty, less than $1.25 a day. Jewish organizations and Jews around the world work every day to address poverty, but we can do even better than that – we can end it! And our tradition enjoins us to do just that. In this session, you’ll hear from global and domestic organizations about how they are working to eradicate poverty at home, in Israel, and around the world, and what you can to do make a difference.
