The coronavirus is devastating Israel’s ultra-Orthodox communities. They represent 12.6 percent of the population, but 28 percent of infections. Large families. Group prayer. Funerals with hundreds of mourners. Social distancing is the antithesis of ultra-Orthodox Jewish life. And when the ultra-Orthodox do fall ill with Covid-19, they often battle it at home, treated by volunteers from a Charity called “Hasdey Amram”. This story gives an inside look at one of the closed communities in the world and allows us to see how they are coping with the Covid 19 crisis.
