Friday, May 15 2020

Carol Goodman Kaufman’s column “COVID-19 Challenges Children-At Risk in Hadassah Youth Villages” for Thrive Global relates how Hadassah’s Youth Villages in Israel continue to rescue children from poverty, abuse and neglect even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Carol is currently Hadassah’s National Chair, Youth Aliyah, an accomplished food writer and author of “Sins of Commission: The Jewish Community’s Reaction to Domestic Violence.”

In her column, Carol celebrates the proud history of Hadassah’s Neurim and Meir Shfeyah Youth Villages and how its staff and students are coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. This column is part of Hadassah’s ongoing series of articles in Thrive Global, the media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.
