“Religion in Times of Crisis”

What are religions supposed to do: on what domains of life do they impact and what do they achieve? 
What happens in times of crisis? Do crises enhance the functioning of religion, undermine it or both?
 
The recent COVID-19 pandemic allowed us to study the function of religion at a moment of global crisis. 
 
We will hear from scholars of religion what they understand about the way that religions operate and we will hear from some of the world’s most prominent religious leaders about how they dealt with challenges during COVID-19, through a unique series of interviews carried out by the Elijah Interfaith Institute, titled “Coronaspection”.

Topics include:

  • Understanding the human condition 
  • Interconnectivity: the place of humans in relation to each other and to the universe 
  • The role of religions in social service and acts of kindness
  • The forms and functions of prayer and meditation
  • The role of religious leadership

Summer school activities include

  • academic lectures
  • panels of scholars and religious leaders
  • viewing and analyzing video messages of world religious leaders (Coronaspection project)
  • small group textual study
  • prayer and meditation
  • anchoring activities in religious sites in Jerusalem and elsewhere 
  • bibliodrama workshops
  • guided group discussion
It is possible to register without payment. Please choose the full payment option if you plan to pay later or to request a discount or group price. If you live in Jerusalem, host an overseas visitor and receive a full scholarship to attend the summer school.
