For thousands of older Israelis like Weinsten, being housebound alone during Israel’s second nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic is difficult and depressing. But each week ahead of the Jewish Sabbath, which starts on Friday at sundown, a home-baked cake is delivered by one of thousands of volunteers bringing pastries to home-bound older Israelis.
