On Passover, it is tradition to practice ma’ot chitim, providing the poor with matzah. This feels especially relevant this year amid a pandemic that is causing economic hardship and a public health crisis. How can we help our community in this critical time while practicing social distancing? Jodi Rudoren; Eric Fingerhut, CEO, Jewish Federations of North America; Cindy Greenberg, President & CEO of Repair the World; Lara Pukatch, Avodah alum and Director of Advocacy at Miriam’s Kitchen; Rabbi David Rosenn, Executive Director of Hebrew Free Loan Society; and Nancy Volpert, Director of Public Policy & Strategic Initiatives at Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles give advice on how to be a mensch this year.
This is part of our new series, “#ForwardFocus: Talks in Trying Times,” in which Jodi is moderating weekly talks with Jewish leaders working to build community through this crisis.
