The coronavirus pandemic and its vast ramifications have also affected the Herczeg Institute's activities; research and communal events have been delayed, and some of our staff took a leave of absence due to COVID-19 related movement restrictions in Israel.

The virus has imposed new challenges for the health care systems, researchers in the fields of old age, and retirement homes, among others. Currently, one of the Herczeg Institute' main goals is to advance research and communal activities related to these challenges, and to understand the expected difficulties in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis. Please follow our updates through email to get further information about our activities.

In these hard times, we would like to offer our modest condolences for those grieving the loss of their partner, family member or friend.
