Unlike the rest of the year, Jews, on the Holiest Day of the Jewish calendar are "not watching television", are "not going to cafes", are not doing what they would be doing if this was a Modern Secular State. Instead, they are walking together, getting to know each other better, enjoying the fact that they can do what they please without the benefit of the commercial outlets. Yeah, they aren't pent up in their homes afraid of what will happen if. They know what to do with themselves when "there is nothing to do". Yes Virginia, you can have a good time without sitting at the local MacDonalds and eating a cheeseburger in Tel Aviv with a milkshake. What's eerie about that?!
