Please note that, as a Jewish organization, CIJA observes Shabbat and High Holidays. This means that CIJA staff are not permitted to work on either Shabbat (the team is usually ‘pens down’ by 2:30 p.m. local time on Fridays) or the High Holidays, including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, the first two and last two days of Sukkot, first two and last two days of Passover, and Shavuot (offices close at 1 p.m. local time on the Erev / first night of the holiday). Our staff therefore do not answer emails or phone calls and, as an organization, we do not participate in interviews or provide comment on those days. However, in the case of an active threat or other extreme circumstance, one of our non-Jewish team members will be available.
