This heartfelt video was created by Community Counter, a volunteer organization created to help the Orthodox Jewish Community stay safe throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. This short video also links to the full video which features over 20 of our Chicago neighbors and friends showing our community's support for wearing masks and helping to save lives every day.
As the Covid-19 pandemic swept the nation last spring, Orthodox Jewish communities around the world emerged as hotspots of ongoing Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths.
Originally launched in Chicago, Community Counter (CC) was founded in June of 2020 to provide culturally competent support for the Chicagoland Orthodox community’s engagement with the official contact tracing efforts
of local health departments. CC has since evolved into an organization that provides scientifically-accurate, culturally-sensitive health education and materials to the Orthodox Jewish community throughout Chicagoland and the United States.
