‘The Jewish Nielsen’

Who’s watching what, Week 13

As in-person convenings across the country have been rendered impossible due to the coronavirus pandemic, organizations have taken to the internet to connect with supporters and expand their reach. Since the start of the pandemic, Jewish Insider has compiled statistics, released weekly, on the webinars and online events being held across the community.

This week, the American Jewish Committee held its virtual Global Forum, with thousands of attendees tuning in to hear from speakers including Israeli Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former White House deputy national security advisors K.T. McFarland and Tony Blinken. The Orthodox Union held its “Battle of the Singers” this week, with an audience of over 5,000. The event raised more than $150,000 to help individuals with special needs combat social isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
