Are We All in This Together? Rent Cancellation and Covid-19

October 6 , 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

T’ruah continues its series of webinars exploring Jewish law and ethics for the age of Covid-19 with a discussion of Americans who are in danger of losing stable housing. Tamar Zaken, Chief Program Officer at HaMaqom|The Place in Berkeley, Calif., and Dr. Raphael Magarik, an assistant professor of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago, will lead a discussion of how Jewish law and lore reframe the way we think about rental agreements and tenants’ rights, and their research findings from T’ruah’s Jewish Law and Ethics Hackathon.
