Team Up! Punahou School Podcast
A Chaplain, a Deacon, a Rabbi, and a Buddhist Walk Into a Pandemic
Apr 10, 2020 · 16 min
For the Judeo-Christian religions, mid-April – the time around Passover and Easter – represents one of the holiest times of the year. In a typical year, millions gather together to celebrate seder or Easter Sunday, but this year, COVID-19 means sheltering in place. The inability to gather with friends and extended family, and the indeterminate duration has caused anxiety and restlessness for many. We spoke with Punahou Chaplain Lauren Medeiros, Transitional Deacon Jenn Latham (whose husband is Punahou President Mike Latham ’86), Rabbi Ken Aronowitz of Temple Emanu-El in Honolulu, and Bishop Eric Matsumoto of Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii to learn how they are counseling their own congregations.
