Instead of Exodus, like Pesach in exotic places, the motto is: Don't roam, stay home. Reminiscent of World War II. Except for unfortunately some of the haredi sector, who believe to be immunized by Torah study - and pay the price.

Israel changed its lifestyle into total lockdown. Will today's babies ever know the warm hugging and kissing of Israeli society?

New York: The city that never sleeps fell into a coma.

Minister Bennett's: Welcome concentration on our elderly may send confusing signals to the young that they are immune (Paris lost a 16-year-old without underlying problems).

Hear: A report from ERAN, Israel's major helpline for emotional and mental problems and an interview with their CEO.

Why: The 2020 Tokyo Olympics were cancelled.

Also: The embarrassment that was of Mossad, our secret service.

Plus: My open letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu and General Gantz as published in the Jerusalem Post this weekend about what was and what should be.

Hear: Walter's political commentary.

And: Golden Oldies to bring back pleasant memories.
