Passover During Coronavirus

Passover During Coronavirus

This year, Passover will be like no Passover before. Self-quarantined in our homes to avoid doing harm to ourselves, our loved ones, and society, Passover will be smaller than ever before.But it will also be powerful. We are, after all, living through a plague of our own, one deserving of inclusion in the list of the Ten Plagues that God meted out against the Egyptians as he rescued the Israelites from slavery and brought them out of Egypt and to the Promised Land. The plague of the coronavirus will leave no community untouched, no family unscathed, whether in terms of health or finances.What can we learn about this modern day plague from the Ten Plagues in the Book of Exodus? What can coronavirus teach us about the Ten Plagues? We asked 20 influencers to write about the 11th Plague: Passover in the Age of Coronavirus.Here’s what they had to say.Illustrations by Noah Lubin.
