As part of Scientists in Synagogues, Temple Beth-El members Jennie Lavine (DPH, Tulane SPH) and David Evelyn (VP of Medical Affairs, Cayuga Medical Center) will be discussing with Rabbi Rachel Safman the communal and ethical dimensions of the decision to take the COVID vaccine.

How and why is this a decision with implications beyond your personal well-being?  How does Jewish thinking resemble or diverge from that of secular sciences (medical, public health) as to whether individuals should be encouraged – even compelled – to take a preventive vaccine? What factors should we be weighing as individuals as we decide how aggressively to pursue (or avoid) vaccination?
