  • next to the Passover observances beginning tonight.

  • A veces Terry Moran has this snapshot of how one local faith community is rallying during the global crisis.

  • In a world where so much human contact has been cut off, the Jewish community in Baltimore, like so many communities, is finding ways to stick together and keep the faith.

  • Local business leader had a proposal to help both a struggling business and those on the front line.

  • This idea was his defeat.

  • The staff in the hospital in Sinai Hospital who are working overtime on our behalf to keep us safe.

  • And for those frontline health care workers, lunch is served.

  • You see the best in worst of people in difficult times, and I could say we are privileged that we are truly as a community seemed best of people.

  • The Corona virus pandemic Shut down Rabbi Silver Synagogue, but not his community.

  • You feel that this is a moment you have to reinvent what you do.

  • Our religion always teaches us that no matter what the circumstances adapt, reinvent and then do something spectacular.

  • Sometimes the spectacular happens in seemingly ordinary ways.

  • In shopping carts.

  • Even Oh, I found it, volunteer shoppers mostly younger.

  • Six.

  • Gold Delicious.

  • Let's do it, getting the groceries for older members of the community and the medically vulnerable.

  • But life goes on, even during a pandemic.

  • And for so many Jewish boys, that means a bar mitzvah, a joyous coming of age ritual.

  • My original Berman was supposed to be at the finish up, which is a pretty room.

  • Instead, it took place on Zoom, the video conferencing platform.

  • Hundreds of people showed up.

  • Rabbi Sober presided from his home muscle, and it was plenty fun when he finished, everyone started dancing.

  • I was sitting with my two sons in my study, and we still we held hands and we started dancing and everyone started dancing way All be dancing together soon Terry Moran, ABC News and we think Terry Moran for that report.

  • And as Passover celebration start and quarantines continue, many of us are marking ancient traditions in a brand new way.

  • One faith leader says that can actually be a good thing.

  • Senior rabbi of Beth El Synagogue in ST Louis Park, Minnesota.

  • Rabbi Avi Galitzki is here with more on that and welcome Rabbi.

  • You recently wrote an op ed in the New York Times about how this pandemic is inspiring you to find, yes, new ways to practice your Shabbat.

  • So tell us how you're coming together is a congregation during these times.

  • Thanks, Jamie.

  • You know, it's quite a challenge.

  • We always think about technology as a distraction and a burden.

  • But for us in our community, it's really been a savior in a way, because we've been able to come together for worship.

  • Service is for study groups, for pastoral care sessions for meetings, for mourning gatherings like Shiva rituals and ship it.

  • Prayer service is, and it's been really eye opening and company.

  • Yeah, we know Passover begins this evening.

  • It's a holiday that so many people associate with gathering together for a meal, being with friends and family and even inviting strangers in as well.

  • This year obviously will be much different.

  • But you think there are some positives that can come out of all of this?

  • I do indeed.

  • You know, this idea of Passover, like you said, is about wide, robust tables with people that you might not obviously welcome into your home or regularly welcome into your home.

  • But this year they're going to be so many more people gathered into our homes using platforms like Zoom and other meeting platforms, specifically because those infirm or unable to travel, or who can't afford to make the trip or the time doesn't afford them to make the trip.

  • This is going to be one of those years where we actually do get to gather even with an iPad prompt on the chair or with the young Children seeing their cousins for miles away because they can't make it our savior's.

  • This year, I'm gonna be that much more joyful, even if we don't anticipate it that way.

  • Yeah, I mean, it's a good way to look at it.

  • And before we let you go, is there a message of hope you can share with all of those who are out there who are feeling pretty hopeless at this time?

  • What I've been reflecting on over the past few days and in the mending about this different year is I think about those Israel lights wandering in the desert.

  • When they left Egypt.

  • They didn't know where they were headed.

  • They heard of this promised land, but they didn't know when they would get there.

  • They didn't know when they would stop, and they didn't know the path they were taken.

  • And for me, I feel like we're in that same wilderness.

  • We don't know where we're going.

  • We don't know where we're headed.

  • But we do have this promise.

  • We have a hope of blessing and peas and health and harmony.

  • And if we look in that same journey that the journey will take us there.

  • Yeah, it's about faith, Right?

  • At the end of the day, Rabbi Avi Zelinsky, thank you so much.

  • We certainly appreciate those calming words and happy Passover to you and yours.

  • Thank you.

  • Thanks for having me.
