As we turn to thoughts of a new year in the Jewish calendar, we reflect on the year that has passed. COVID-19 has been a defining issue around the entire world, and will continue to shape daily life for a length of time we can only imagine.

Please join us as we hear from Dr. David Fisman about the social justice issues presented by the current pandemic, with an eye to how our Jewish values inform our understanding of this unprecedented global challenge. We will include prayers and readings to honour those affected by COVID-19.
