In Fighting COVID-19


In fighting Covid-19 Israel has been among
the countries which have managed the crisis well.

Israeli scientists – always in quest for global solutions
– have been working to find a cure and a vaccine.

The Jerusalem Press Club is proud
of having shared this with the world media.


In the midst of this crisis the Jerusalem Press Club is giving the journalists covering Israel access to the Israeli decision makers, doctors and scientists standing on the front line fighting the Coronavirus, as well as analysts and the people on the streets (or rather in their homes!) who can share their reflections on their experience of this unprecedented and momentous time.

While we understand that each and every one of us must look inward while we face the challenge of the Coronavirus in our own homes, we at the Jerusalem Press Club are determined to continue looking outward and sustain interest in Israel, sharing the particular way that Israelis deal with crisis. ​
