A joint post on Times of Israel with my friend Rick Light of Kavod v’Nichum and the Gamliel Institute about how the pandemic has changed some of our oldest rituals – and how it hasn’t changed them. While we write about burial practices, we are really talking about why all of our rituals and routines are the way they are, even in the most non-routine of times.
