Top Places to Donate & Help Fight Coronavirus

The Best Quarantine-friendly Businesses, Services & More in Israel

Surely you've heard by now - we've got a global pandemic on our hands and she goes by the name of Corona. Most countries are taking extreme measures to contain the spread of the virus, and it seems that little old Israel is on the forefront of that with travel restrictions, closed schools, and now the 5-week partial lockdown of basically everything.
