Episode 46: Virtual Holidays: Lessons from our Muslim friends

Back in April, many of us celebrated Passover with a virtual Seder, or two. Now, five months later, we enter the High Holidays in much the same predicament. It’s hard not to feel disconnected when we can't be at our synagogues or share big festive meals with our communities. But, of course, Jews are not the only ones who have experienced this. Our Muslim friends have already gone through several major holidays, including the month of Ramadan, in quarantine. In this special Rosh Hashanah mini-sode, three Muslim women—Bintou Fall, Sukai See, and Angelica Lindsey-Ali—share advice about getting through a holiday season while social distancing.

Music for this episode: "Waves" and "Canada" by Pictures of the Floating World.
