The pandemic has transformed, perhaps forever, how we experience the most banal of activities, whether it’s a trip to the supermarket or a walk in the neighborhood.

In this episode, we hear from ToI’s opinion editor Miriam Herschlag about why she keeps muttering “amen” on her evening jogs in Jerusalem, and from Ann Bar-Dov on her epic journey to pick up groceries in Israel’s northern town of Karmiel.

The WhyWhyWhy! True Stories from Israel Podcast, hosted by Miriam Herschlag and Noah Efron, is a collaboration between The Times of Israel and TLV1 Podcasts. New story submissions are welcome. If you have a story to tell that you think might be a fit, contact the hosts at
