VIDEO: Learning From Pandemics Past: Jewish History and Coronavirus

By Dan Seligson, Senior Director, Strategic Communications

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has triggered an unprecedented wave of changes to day-to-day life in Greater Boston and beyond. 

But existing in a state of crisis is nothing new to the Jewish people. History can be our guide during difficult times. What does the past tell us about how we will emerge from the era of COVID-19? How might Jewish life, including how we gather and how we learn, change after this extended period of radical social distancing and economic turmoil? 

JewishBoston and CJP present this timely conversation with two experts: Dr. Jonathan Sarna, a historian, author and Brandeis professor who provides with the context of the time we’re in; and Rabbi Marc Baker, CEO and President of CJP.
