Highly recommend looking at the visually powerful piece on Covid in the Israeli Haredi community.

Listen to this podcast on very incisive discussion on this crisis from the Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. No. 17: Israeli Society and the Haredim - A Turning Point? (hartman.org.il)

    We have a young observate couple with two young children who live in west Jerusalem. They have lost their jobs trying to hang on. They are not Haredi but the reality of the situation is very difficult. What can they do to remain in Israel

      Hi Hope, I wish I could offer you counsel. My main hope is that most people in Israel are getting vaccinated and that the economy will open up when this happens. My best wishes. Thanks for your comment. Rabbi Dov Gartenberg
