I moved to Hong Kong on the day of a huge protest marking China’s National Day on October 1 and thought it would probably be the wildest experience I’d have all year. Two months later, during Hanukkah, I found out that I had breast cancer. So, while the global coronavirus crisis was the most challenging thing that happened to nearly everyone else on the planet in 2020, it barely made my top five.
