From Our Communities
The COVID-19 crisis has forced Jewish communities across the globe to redirect their activities to the digital sphere to enable them to provide critical up-to-date information and resources on urgent matters: the supply and accessibility of kosher for Passover food; religious rulings pertaining to video conferencing to conduct a virtual Seder; guidelines for burials and mourning practices while in isolation; and important, potentially life-saving community updates.
