Shabbat is marked traditionally by refraining from work and partaking in communal meals.

According to the Undergraduate Student Government COVID-19 Student Input Survey report, 69.1 percent of respondents rated their mental health as “somewhat worse” or “significantly worse” in comparison to before the semester became remote. In this virtual semester, isolation from friends, difficult living environments, or stress from current events can exacerbate these problems.

In private memory, this place [Princeton] is its halls, its library, its chapel worn to satin by the encounters and collaborations among and between strangers from other neighborhoods and strangers from other lands. In private memory, it is friendships secured and endangered on greens and in classrooms, offices, eating clubs, residences.
