Lauren Stefanelli of PEGASYS interviews IAUJC Chair Marcia Zax and Board Member Howard Erlich of the Ithaca Area United Jewish Community discussing the IAUJC sponsored presentation by Yotam Polizer on the work of IsraAid, an Israeli NGO delivering humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees.

IsraAID, Israel's largest humanitarian nongovernmental organization, includes Jews, Christians and Muslims and has been on the front lines of nearly every major humanitarian response in the 21st century, including the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the 2013 typhoon in the Philippines, and the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, according to a news release.  View a short video about IsraAid's work in Haiti with speaker Sean Penn, here.
