What does the Torah say about an epidemic? Is bitachon really expected of me when the world seems to be falling apart? What are the halachos of Shabbos in such a circumstance?
The current situation has turned the world as we know it on its head. Confusion and bewilderment are the norms. Everyone is seeking guidance and a reassuring word.
To answer our questions and to offer Torah’s perspective on the situation, a WhatsApp group was opened with timely messages from Harav Yosef Braun, mara d’asra and member of the Crown Heights Beis Din.
Harav Braun draws on his knowledge of Torah sources to address the many halachic queries that arise, and draws inspiration from the writings of our Rebbeim to give us hope in times that can seem bleak.
