Pandemics, Plagues, and Jewish Thought (Jewish Quarterly Review) (Coronavirus)

Theological and philosophical reflections on pandemic and plague here at Jewish Quarterly Review, including Tamar Ross, Martin Kavka, Randi Rashkover, Aryeh Cohen, Laura Levitt, and Zachary Braiterman. A funny little set. Of a piece, these modest little blogposts thread together a complex common theme about inter-connectivity, agency and contingency, religion, meaning, the public good and the city, scenes of disaster and small blessings, solidarity and secular saintliness. From the inside of Jewish philosophy and thought, they look out onto a bigger sense of a shared world at a moment of deep dislocation. Without a strong sense of God. Here, “we” are all together.
