Chabad of Southern Minnesota will be offering a Jewish Learning Institute accredited class called "What Goes Around: Perspectives on Pandemics in Jewish history."

The class Tuesday is offered as an online Zoom class. To register, visit www.ChabadSouthernMN.Com/JLI.

The novel coronavirus is not the first of its kind. The class offers a sweeping survey of major plagues and epidemics in Jewish history, from biblical through Talmudic to modern times, with a view to how people reacted to them.

Assembling advice, antidotes and anecdotes relating to the practical, Halachic (Jewish Law) and spiritual aspects of the plague, it considers how Jewish life has been historically disrupted by plague -- and ultimately recovered from and adapted to it.
