Congregants around the Commonwealth can now return to their houses of worship, as Massachusetts begins phase 1 of its reopening. We check in with local religious leaders to see how they're interpreting the new guidelines, and what those guidelines mean for being in community and for sacred practices.
We hear from:
- Shaykh Yasir Fahmy, instructor on Muslim Studies at Harvard Divinity School.
- Rabbi Joel Sisenwine, senior rabbi of Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley.
- Rev. Laura Everett, executive director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches.
- Father John Unni, pastor of Saint Cecilia Parish.
