COVID-19 Series: Part 1
Introducing COVID-19: Perspective Series. For the month of April, DENtalks Podcast episodes will be devoted to discussing COVID-19 through different perspectives. We feel it is extremely important to discuss the global pandemic but in a way that spreads a sense of calm and peace. Many of us are dealing with anxiety and trying to fill our time with purposeful activities, so we wanted to make sure that our podcast can help aid with whatever you are going through during this time. We are all in this together.
Our first series guest is a dear friend of the podcast, Rabbi David Wolpe. To learn more about this incredible man, go back and listen to his first podcast with us episode #32 – it’s a great one. Today, Rabbi Wolpe joins us to discuss COVID-19. As a leader in the community, Rabbi Wolpe shares with us the ways that he has been continuing to spread joy during this time. He talks about the importance of learning how to smile at ourselves when we’re alone, keeping traditions alive, being flexible with change, and finding the resources within OURSELVES to make us happy, calm, and content.
Rabbi Wolpe also shares the 3 lessons he believes we are supposed to be learning from this pandemic. He also recommends that everyone should be journaling at this time because we are living through history and he predicts it will be hard to look back and comprehend what our current reality is – we couldn’t agree more! We even discuss the positive impact social media is having on the community, how we are moving away from superficial content and leaning into deeper more impactful conversations.
There are so many positive takeaways from this episode that we can all turn towards during this time! If you have any questions or want to join a community, please join our Facebook group, DENtalks Podcast, where we will be discussing these episodes and supporting each other through any difficulty that arises.
