The coronavirus 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?

Listen to our timely conversation with two experts: Dr. Jonathan Sarna, a historian, author and Brandeis professor who provides the context of the time we’re in, and Rabbi Marc Baker, president and CEO of CJP, a large Jewish organization at the forefront of responding to a community in crisis.

Edited by Jesse Ulrich, with music by Ryan J. Sullivan.
