Amid the coronvirus lockdown, thousands of Israelis came out to their balconies to sing ‘Mah Nishtana’ together on Wednesday night to celebrate Passover 2020.
In cities and towns across the country people joined together to sing Mah Nishtana, or the Four Questions, a song traditionally sung by the youngest member of the household that asks: “Why is this night different from every other night?”
While most sang, in some places people flicked their apartment lights on and off, cheered, clapped and shouted happy holidays to their neighbors.
Some resident resort to using programs like Zoom and FaceTime to connect virtually for the meal, that puts a focus on passing traditions down from generation to generation.
Israel and the Palestinians have been struggling to contain the local outbreak of covid-19 that has virtually halted daily life and led to tens of thousands of people entering quarantine.
9,404 Israelis have so far tested positive for the coronavirus; 74 people have died. In the West Bank, 250 cases have been diagnosed so far. One woman in her 60s has died. In Gaza, 13 cases have been diagnosed.
