Susan R. Karon

Susan R. Karon’s column “Observing Shabbat during COVID-19" reflects on how Shabbat observance is the best part of the week, for her and, with the current climate, among the things she misses the most. A Life Member of Hadassah, Susan is Member Engagement Manager of Temple Beth Elhoim, Wellesley, MA. This column is part of Hadassah’s ongoing series of articles in Thrive Global, the media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.

In her column, Susan writes about how she can’t wait for the day when she can greet the congregation’s members in 3D and not on a computer screen.
