As we continue to stay at home during the current coronavirus pandemic, we all have questions. Questions about the best medical protocols, questions about how to destress and manage our sudden fears and anxieties, questions about our jobs and our money.
To answer these questions, The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore and Jmore have teamed up to offer “The Upside,” a new virtual program featuring some of the community’s leading experts.
Hosted by Beth Goldsmith, Chair-Elect of The Associated, and Scott Rifkin, Publisher of Jmore, the show will tackle some of the most pressing issues on our minds … as well as tips to find meaning and enjoyment during this time. The Q&A format was designed to allow the community to ask these experts the real questions that are on their minds.
The program, which streams on Tuesdays at noon and Thursdays at 7:00 p.m., is available on Zoom, Facebook and YouTube.
Upcoming programs are expected to focus on navigating the current financial crisis, finding a job, homeschooling solutions, researching your family history and more.
