In one of the Biblical stories, prophet Balaam blesses the tents of Israel for being good. But what can be so good about the tents? The traditional Rabbinical interpretation is that the placement of the tents provided full privacy. In our previous paper, we considered the consequences of visual privacy: from each entrance, one cannot see what is happening at any other entrance. In this paper, we analyze the possible consequences of audio privacy: from each tent, you cannot hear what is going on in other tents.
