Welcome to Hotel Corona, Such a Lovely Place!

When Noam Shuster checked into Hotel Corona in Jerusalem, nothing had prepared her for the multicultural, unforgettable experience that would unfold in the following days.

Two Nice Jewish Boys is a weekly Israeli podcast in English. Naor Meningher and Eytan Weinstein offer you a glimpse of Israel and some of the interesting people here. Since February 2017 Two Nice Jewish Boys is featured on the website of the Jewish Journal, America’s top Jewish news outlet. Naor Meninger is an independent filmmaker. He’s obsessed with Italy and runs the Israeli parmesan black-market. Eytan Weinstein is an interactive scriptwriter. He grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and pronounces the word “drawer” funny.

AS of today, Israel hasn’t been hit very hard by the coronavirus, relatively speaking.

The government took extreme measures early on, and managed to limit the spread of the virus and death toll. One of the unique steps taken by the Israeli government was to rent out entire hotels throughout the country, and convert them into quarantined hotels.

The idea was simple – if you have corona, and can’t isolate, check into the hotel, receive food and medical treatment and once you recover, you can checkout. Welcome to the Hotel Corona! Such a lovely place.

Noam Shuster is a stand up comedian, a peace activist and recently, patient number 3555. When she checked into Hotel Corona in Jerusalem, nothing had prepared her for the multicultural, unforgettable experience that would unfold in the following days.

We’re happy to host one of the only people in Israel who CAN’T infect us with COVID-19 (hopefully), Noam Shuster.
