COVID-19 Impact Survey: Complete This Confidential Questionnaire to Help Measure the Pandemic’s Local Impact
Posted by Liat Stilman on 03/05/2021 @ 02:42 PM
The unprecedented nature and rapid spread of COVID-19 has exposed critical risks to our local economy as well as our systems of health care and education.
As we approach the 12-month mark of this prolonged crisis, our partners at the United Way of Miami-Dade are conducting a Pandemic Impact Survey to measure how Miami-Dade households have been affected by the pandemic including the financial burden on families in our community. The survey aims to collect responses from a wide range of households, income levels, as well as, small business owners.
Your confidential participation, which will take no more than 10-15 minutes, is critical to understanding COVID’s impact to date as well as help inform long-term recovery efforts. A preliminary report will be published this summer.
Take the survey HERE.

From the very start of the pandemic, food trends have taken over our newsfeeds. From sourdough starter to shallot pasta to the Tik Tok tortilla hack, we haven’t been able to resist testing out all the quarantine food trends over the past year.
For this workshop, we’re taking inspiration from some of these trends and turned our favorite quarantine recipes into out-of-the-box hamantaschen flavours! Join us as we bake Banana Chocolate Hamantaschen and Dalgona Coffee Hamantaschen. We’ll also share our tips for making the perfect hamantaschen every time!
After we’ve baked our hamantaschen, Jamie Elman and Eli Batalion of YidLife Crisis will join us for a Purim shpiel.
The event is pay-what-you-can, with a suggested amount of $18.
