Fear of Coronavirus


Dear rabbi, I am afraid of the current situation of the world because successful eradication of coronavirus is still in a stagnant position. I know the human brain has no power to know what is the next plan of Hashem. But God always punishes many wicked people on earth when He gets too angry. Has the time already come or do we still have enough time to survive? What does the Torah and works of kabbalah say about it?

Please reply, rabbi, because I am worried and I don’t know what will happen to me.



  1. The Sages teach that when a plague is released into the world – and there is no doubt that the coronavirus is definitely a pandemic – the best thing the individual can do is to pray and perform acts of kindness in the hope that we will be be spared. That means that each concerned person needs to focus on their prayers and to concentrate on the words and the meanings behind them so that they can connect to God through the words that they are saying. As well as that is the need to be involved in kind acts that help others and bring some joy into their lives.
