Post 276: Israeli Senior Citizen Card, sign up with an e-mail. Jerusalem Card is Free for Seniors starting February 2016, Khan Theate’s in house café-bar hosts nightly live shows and jam sessions, with a focus on giving exposure to the next generation of local musicians – all performances are free of charge. Information Relating to the number of updates in your location Mircaz Ha”Ir:

I have found that nothing happens “automatically ” in Israel with the exception of Arnona (real Estate Tax) and health insurance tax. Those bills are sent by mail and best not to ignore them.

The Israeli Senior Citizen Card, Kartis Ezrach Vatik is another story. It is available thru their website to women over the age of 62 and men over the age of 67. This card provides a variety of discounts and benefits on public transportation, attractions, and several other services.

I don’t understand WHY such a card has a use since one’s birthdate is clearly visible on the Teudat Zehut.

New Olim, wherever they reside in Israel, can receive their Kartis Ezrach Vatik by contacting the Department of Services to the Elderly (Sherut LeMa’an HaZaken) in Jerusalem at: 02- 654-7025 or emailing ezrach.vatik@pmo.gov.il. You may also send a fax with your request to 02-654-7049

Include the information below in your request:

  • Your name as it appears on your Teudat Zehut (Identity card)
  • Your telephone numbers (landline and cell phone)
  • Home Address
  • Copy of your Teudat Zehut

Expect a 1-2 month waiting period before receiving the card in the mail.

The Yeruhalami Card is similarly available to seniors. according to the age requirements as stated above. 

https://www1.jerusalem.muni.il/jer_sys/forms/CreateForm.aspx?idsysform=%20227 (form in Hebrew).

Call center and issuance 1-700-53-00-02 | Sundays, B, D, E at 09:00 to 13:30 Tuesdays at 09:00 to 13:30, 16:00 to 6:00 p.m. | Safra Square. This by-phone works as I just called. I was told that I would automatically receive the card last February.

However, nothing is automatic.

I refer you to common questions regarding the card for seniors. I was told upon my last visit to the Yerushalaymi Card office that I would automatically get a card in February, since the card is free starting February 1, 2016.

Didn’t happen.

I will try  to clarify, (B”H) tomorrow. The office number is 1-700-53-00-02. Common questions follow:

Ideas For Healthy Mishloach Manot

Recipes:

Super Healthy Hamentaschen

Ingredients:

1 cup chia seeds, ground in a coffee grinder.

The one in the photo is ubiquitous in Israel. 

The grinder does a superb job-Gold-line ATL 242

1 cup cashews

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

½ cup oat bran

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp sea salt

1.5 cup or 2 avocados

½ cup maple or brown rice syrup

1 tsp vanilla

Your favorite jam or

2 cups Turkish apricots

Zest of ½ lemon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Soak Turkish apricots in hot water for 15 min. Drain. Blend in a food processor with lemon zest until smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Wash and dry the food processor.

Place chia seeds, cashews, oats, oat bran, cinnamon and sea salt into the food processor and grind until well processed. Remove into a bowl. I find it easier to grind the seeds first.

In the same food processor, mix avocados, syrup, and vanilla until well blended. Add to the bowl with dry ingredients.

Mix all ingredients to form medium-soft pliable dough.

Separate into pieces the size of a golf ball. I weigh out 40-50 grams with your hands or with rolling pin, make circles ¼ inch thick. Place baking paper under pin if you find that the dough doesn’t roll out.

Using a floured spatula lift the circles and place them on parchment paper lined baking sheets.

Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of filling into the center of each circle. Fold over the edges to form three corners.

Bake 20-25 min.

Sweet Crunchy Balls

1 1/4 cups rolled oats
3/4 cups dried apricots
3/4 cups dried currants
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
toasted sesame seeds

Pulse all ingredients in a food processor. Make small balls and roll them in sesame seeds. Easy,delicious, and filling! Great idea for the school snacks!

Add warm liquid to the dry ingredients and mix well with a fork.

Place 1/3 of the mixture into an 8×8 baking dish. Make sure to cover the bottom of the dish.Pack it down with wet hands into a firm layer.

Evenly spread the apricot mix on top.

Spread another 1/3 of the oatmeal mixture on top of the apricots, gently and lightly pressing down.

Cover the second layer of the oatmeal mixture with the lemon preserve.

Crumble the rest of the oatmeal mixture on top of the lemon preserve to fully cover it.

Bake for 30 minutes.

From Drs. Oz and Roizen:

When legendary college basketball coach Dean Smith transformed the traditional fast break into the lightning-fast “Carolina Break”, the University of North Carolina started winning and Smith ended up with a record-breaking career win/loss record of 879-254.
If you’re looking for a major transformation — losing weight and getting healthier — you want to change your break-fast so you become a winner too. How? A 12-week study of overweight and obese women found those who ate a big breakfast https://www.sharecare.com/health/weight-loss/article/flatten-a-big-belly-eat-these-two-healthy-diet-foods-for-breakfast, mid-sized lunch and small dinner lost over twice as much weight as women who took in the same calories, but in reverse order! Breakfast firsters also reduced waist circumference, lowered blood glucose, insulin resistance, and levels of ghrelin, the hunger hormone.
Why does this work ?https://www.sharecare.com/health/eating-habits-nutrition/why-is-breakfast-so-important?myAttribute=yay? While science doesn’t have all the answers yet, here are some possible explanations: Eat more calories than you burn, fat is stored. Burn more calories than you take in — weight loss! Since you burn more calories when you’re awake than when you’re asleep, doesn’t it make sense to eat most of your calories in the morning? Plus, that hearty first meal seems to stabilize weight-boosting blood sugar levels and helps increase your calorie burn all day long.

So to lose weight, have your highest calorie meal in the morning. Enjoy a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats like olive oil, only 100% whole grains, and lean proteins (beans, nuts, salmon, ocean trout, and skinless poultry). You’ll make a fast break from your overweight past by turning your breakfast around.
