During this special News & Nosh with Rabbi Marx, we will be joined by guest speaker Joanna Zeiger-Guerra, who will talk about what’s been happening in Israel since last Yom Ha’Atzmaut - both in terms of COVID-19’s impact on the country as well as social and political trends. Joanna will also share how the grassroots educational organization Dror Israel has responded to this changing reality. Dror Israel’s initiatives reach over 100,000 people throughout the country and the organization received a presidential award for its activities over the past year.Scroll down for the Zoom meeting link.

About our Guest Speaker:

Joanna Zeiger-Guerra is a proud product of Congregation Beth Or. After graduating from McGill University in 2012, she made aliyah with a group of friends from the Habonim Dror youth movement.

Upon arriving in Israel, Joanna joined an urban educators’ kibbutz in Dror Israel. For the past eight years she has worked across various educational frameworks to bolster the connection between Jewish youth in the Diaspora and Israel.

Since the onset of COVID-19, Joanna has joined the pedagogy team of Dror Israel’s early childhood education program.

Today she calls Dror Israel's educators’ kibbutz in Jaffa home.
