The study investigated teachers' organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey's quantitative analysis (N = 299) revealed that Israeli teachers reported more OCBs “during COVID-19″ than “before COVID-19,” mostly towards students, less towards the school and parents, and least towards colleagues. The qualitative analysis enabled the identification of the unique construct of teacher OCB during the pandemic, composed of six categories: promoting academic achievement, investing extra time, providing support to students, use of technology, compliance with regulations, and compliance with role changes. These findings emphasize the importance of understanding OCB as a context-related phenomenon, especially during crises times.
