How COVID-19 Is Changing American Judaism

Description (Dublin Core)

Judaism in America is rapidly changing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Historically, the Jewish community, while having various splits (i.e. Orthodox, Reformed, etc.), has continued to view itself as one, unified community. However, the pandemic has highlighted the various ways in which the community is perhaps more fractured than previously thought. For example, while the Reformed community has quickly adopted having services over Zoom, the Orthodox community, though allowing certain services to be performed over Zoom, will not allow specific holy days to be Zoomed. The pandemic is not only creating new rifts within the American Jewish community, it is bringing previously extant rifts to the fore.
