Learn for All Those Struck By COVID-19 (COVID-19 sick)
Refuah Shelema

"My nation" says Hashem to us in Yeshayahu (26:20), "Go! Enter your rooms and lock the door behind you. Hide out, for just a moment, until the rage has passed."

Rashi tells us that this means that Yeshayahu was told to tell the Jewish people to retreat into their Shuls and Batei Midrashim. Rashi also cited the Midrash Tanchuma who says that this means to enter into the depths of one's heart and awaken feelings of Teshuva.

As is generally the case in Torah, these two approaches are both true. They are indeed two sides of the same coin. Learning Torah and focusing on Tefilah are all about becoming even better people, and more committed Torah Jews. "The whole goal of wisdom of Torah is Teshuva and good deeds!" (Brachot 17a, see Rashi ad loc s.v. tachlis)
