This year, there will be no gathering around the table with extended family for the Passover Seder, and no congregating at church for Easter Sunday.

In Massachusetts and across the world, people are stuck in their homes, distancing themselves to prevent the spread of coronavirus. So what does that mean for these two religious holidays that rely so much on coming together?

We discuss with Rabbi Joel Sisenwine, senior rabbi of Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley, and Rev. Laura Everett, executive director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches.

This segment aired on April 9, 2020.
