Roni and I just returned from our third trip to Israel and as usual, the experience was terrific. We enjoyed the hustle and bustle of Tel Aviv, the spirituality of Jerusalem, the breathtaking hilltop views in Haifa and the artistic communities in the Golan. And we loved the food wherever we went. You can't beat the chocolate babka from Israel. The rest of our trip was spent deep diving into Jewish National Fund programs near and dear to our hearts.

Coronavirus, from a Jewish perspective: When it comes to good deeds, just do it

By Yossi Kahana, Director, JNF Task Force on Disabilities

The global coronavirus pandemic has really thrown people for a loop. Many of us feel all sense of certainty is gone. What will happen next? We don't know. Our experts don't know. Our leaders don't know. Only G-d knows. So, what we can do? Keep calm, trust G-d, and carry on. Think good and it will be good. Do good deeds, support one another, take every precaution advised by health authorities.

Wash your hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds several times a day, and every time you do, remember whose hands you are in.
