The Plagues Project
Covid-19 and the Theological Challenge of the Arbitrary
As the world grapples with the effects of COVID and the chaos, uncertainty, and pain it has brought to humanity, leading Jewish thinkers to reflect on the concept of plague in both historical and current contexts.
Grounded in the Biblical text and the narrative of the Ten Plagues, The Plagues Project consists of more than 30 videos, each offering a unique perspective on Judaism and plagues and showcasing the variety of ways that Jews have thought about Plagues – both Biblical Plagues and plagues throughout history – for the last 3,000 years.
