The Meaning of the COVID-19 Pandemic on The Eve of Passover

Saturday, Apr 11 2020

Jorge Diener’s column “The Meaning of the COVID-19 Pandemic on The Eve of Passover” for Thrive Global reminds us that there is nothing better than remembering that we must all find a way to express our collective responsibility to free ourselves of the danger we face today. Currently Associate Director, Hadassah International, Jorge promotes Hadassah’s mission of healing, teaching and research.

In his column, Jorge reflects on how the story of Exodus is not just the story of one hero who ran away from slavery, but the collective efforts of a group of people who only together could cross a mighty river. This column is part of Hadassah’s ongoing series of articles in Thrive Global, the media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.
