Looking at how the Jewish Community within American Society can come together to mourn the loss of lives from COVID-19, as well as how to mourn for/with marginalized communities who are suffering beyond the disease. A number of the lecturers from this week draw from the Jewish experience to bridge understanding between social issues affecting American society, with a focus on the black community and the Black Lives Matter movement. All three videos of this collection depict how broader social issues in both American society and the world impact the Jewish community.
