Tel Aviv, Yirmiyahu- As life in  the city of Tel Aviv slowly grinds to a halt in preparation for the solemn occasion of Yom Kippur, loyal readers of the popular site “Secret Tel Aviv” are scrambling to find a way to support one anothers’ need to make snap judgements on other people while also asking total strangers completely off the wall questions.  To this end, a number of readers have banded together and promised to take advantage of the total lack of traffic in order to wander the streets giving unsolicited advice to random passersby and asking other people questions seemingly pulled out of a hat.

“Yom Kippur is a special time, so I can’t wait to go up to somebody I don’t know and tell them about the time the sushi restaurant put shrimp in my order that was supposed to be kosher. noted loyal reader Danny F. “Also, if  two people having a discussion on the street, I might interject and imply that one of them doesn’t know what they’re talking about.”

Loyal reader Jessica K. also discussed her plans for the Chag.  “My friends and I are going to walk along Ayalon Highway, and ask anyone if they have a  nature-themed jigsaw puzzle they are giving away.  That’s a reasonable thing to ask, right?”

Unfortunately, not everyone on the site seems to be on the same sheet of music.  Secret Tel Aviv regular Matti C. was somewhat confused by all of the activity and planning. “Wait…..so there’s something going on tomorrow?  OMG I need to get on Secret Tel Aviv and find out tomorrow’s bus schedule.”
