Ultra-Orthodox Jews and Covid-19

Zoom

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the ultra-orthodox Jewish community attracted media attention for non-compliance with public health mandates, including masking and avoiding large gatherings. More recently, questions have arisen concerning ultra-orthodox Jewish hesitancy to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This talk will explore the experiences of Hasidic Jews in the New York area during the pandemic, based on in-person research conducted in the summer of 2021.
