Jewish and Arab citizens in Israel are experiencing the Coronavirus pandemic together as a national crisis. But a lack of preparedness and resources within and for Arab communities have led to increased health and economic concerns. In recent days, a situation room has been established for Arab society to enhance coordination and strengthen capacities to implement an emergency response. In what ways is this crisis different in Arab society? What are the main risks, priorities and efforts taking place now? What is the impact, if any, on Jewish-Arab relations?

Hear from Ghada Abu Jaber-Nijem, Executive Director of Injaz and head of the Local Authorities Committee in the National Situation Room for Arab Society and Mohammad Darawshe, Director, Center for Equality & Shared Society at Givat Haviva, about efforts to address emergency response gaps in Arab society as a public health and shared society priority.
