Reflecting on the mental health of Orthodox Jews during the COVID-19 pandemic

By Michelle Shain

Did you know that among Orthodox Jews, it was not the elderly but younger people who had the highest rates of stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness during the COVID-19 pandemic?

That is just one of the findings from our COVID-19 Community Portrait Study that our Senior Fellow, Adina Bankier-Karp, shared in her new op-ed: Who will enjoy tranquility and who will suffer: The impact of the pandemic on mental health. The Center is grateful to eJP for the opportunity to share some of our findings with the Jewish community.
