Collection

For more than 40 years, Jews have been affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic—as doctors, activists, and artists, as well as those suffering from the disease and their loved ones. Tablet has shared these people’s stories, focusing on how they bring Jewish values to the ongoing battle against AIDS, and how that battle has affected their lives as Jews.
