Stay Safe In Israel was written in response to the recent tragic deaths of two American yeshiva students who were traveling while studying in Israel. Just a few weeks ago, as Stay Safe In Israel was going to print, a student touring Masada fell, suffered heat stroke, and died. That same day, twenty five American seminary girls who were hiking needed to be evacuated to a hospital due to dehydration. These incidents further demonstrate the critical need for the handbook, which provides lifesaving trip and hiking instructions as well as detailed tips on personal, street, and travel safety. The handbook can also be beneficial to both new and seasoned tourists.

For seminary girls, the Keep Your Community Safe Initiative also recommends Seminary Savvy, the outstanding newly released book by Debbie Fox, LCSW.

Hello macro friends,


DUQQA is a fantastic, ancient Egyptian condiment prepared with roasted sesame seeds, hazelnuts, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, sea salt & a bit of black pepper. Absolutely delicious! I prepared it with whole sesame seeds instead of white.

There are many recipes on the net. I adjusted the quantities as follows:

3/4 cup whole sesame seeds, 1/2 cup hazelnuts, 1 heaped tablespoon cumin seeds, 1 heaped tablespoon coriander seeds, 1 teaspoon thin sea salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Enjoy!
