An article by Rabbi Joel and Leon Wiener Dow about Pesach in the time of Covid-19 (April 2020). 

Corona and Seder-ing Alone

As Masorti in the UK continues to grapple with issues around Shabbat during this pandemic, this article looks at the conceptual (as opposed to halachic) issues about what is at stake; what Shabbat is for, why it matters, and how that impacts the debate on streaming on Shabbat (June 2020).
