Liberal Rabbi urges greater unity amid social distancing

Liberal Judaism’s Rabbi Elli Tikvah Sarah called for greater unity amid social distancing measures in a prayer written during the pandemic.

“As social distancing prevents us from experiencing the joys of life in community, may the need to withdraw and stay well be accompanied by the urge to reach out to others with compassion and care and to forge and renew connections, even in the absence of physical contact,” it says.

The prayer was shared on Twitter last Friday by the senior reform rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner.
