The coronavirus pandemic has altered life in profound ways for all of us. But perhaps it is most acutely felt in communities housing the elderly. For these high-risk adults, visits with family and friends are no longer an option, and casual afternoon Zoom calls are not always possible.
On this episode, we talk with Rabbi Marc Baker, president and CEO of CJP, and Amy Schectman, president and CEO of 2Life Communities, which helps seniors age affordably and live well. They discuss how their organizations are responding to the coronavirus crisis, the importance of connection and community, and what gives them hope in the days leading up to Passover.
