Trip with Women in Green Isru Chag Shavuot at Sinai Farm in Sussya
On the day after Shavuot there will be an activity for the entire family at the Sinai Farm in Susiya, in South Hevron Hills. (See the attached Hebrew flyer)
Background on Sinai Farm: In 1996, members of the family of Yair Har-Sinai, hy”d, and his wife Dalia Har Sinai and their nine children, decided to establish an agricultural farm on the outskirts of the community of Susiya, near Nahal Rahim. It is an agricultural farm that uses methods from the past and organic methods. A herd of sheep was established, as well as orchards, a vegetable garden and wheat fields. All of the hard work was conducted with the ideal of blending with nature, a modest, un- materialistic lifestyle and first and foremost, love for the Land of Israel.
For Jews to preserve the state’s lands was, in their eyes, a supreme value and therefore they did the agricultural work and allocated more and more plots of land to shepherding.
In 2008, Yair Har Sinai was murdered by Arabs from the area. His wife Dalia made the decision to continue their shared path, to continue developing and preserving the grazing areas and continuing the activities in the area of shepherding and producing cheese from their milk.
To the family tragedy of the father’s murder, was added the theft of 170 sheep from their pens in the middle of 2010, but even this did not break the vision of the family, which continues, together with friends, to work in the farm and develop it. On the day after Shavuot, as mentioned, an event will be held at the place for the entire family and it will be a good opportunity for the People of Israel to see with their own eyes, true love of the land and dedication. Details in the attached flyer. The main activities will be from 12 noon to 4:00pm. Entrance fee: 90 nis per family. 20 per person.

Scallion Spinach Pancakes or Bourekas: There is an alternative to frying. I took a prepared potato bureka like the one in the photo. It is made of many layers of thin filo dough. I sliced the boureka in four sections across the square and pulled out the potato filling. I mixed that with my prepared filling for the pancakes without the eggs and flour. I laid out the sliced squares on a baking paper lined tray and baked them thoroughly and turned them. I removed my altered pastry and dropped my mostly vegetable filling on the pastry. I baked this at 450 degrees and pulled the tray out. The dough was sufficiently soft to fold it and make a closed pocket. This I warmed on top of the stove Shabbat evening.
Using the prepared pastry saved time and the added carb calories.
Yield: About 14 to 15 pancakes, or burekas filling.
12 scallions (mine were very thin; I’d use fewer if yours are on the thick side)
1 handful beet green leaves, rolled in a stack and sliced into very thin ribbons
1 cup defrosted spinach pressed dry
2 eggs, lightly beaten or substitute with ground flax seed meal
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon coarse or kosher salt (use less if your mashed potatoes are already seasoned)
Freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup fresh bread crumbs or panko (plain and lightweight) or your non glutin flour mixture
1 1/2 cups cold leftover mashed potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Clean and trim the scallions, leaving about 2 inches of green stems; I reserved the darker green tops for garnish and salad additions. Cook in boiling water until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, wring out well, and chop finely. Place the scallions in a medium-sized bowl, add the chopped leaves, eggs, nutmeg (if using), salt, pepper, bread crumbs and potatoes and stir to combine. The batter will be loose and wet; this is just fine.
Heat the oils in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking. Use about 2 tablespoons batter (I used a cookie scoop that holds slightly less) per pancake, flattening them as they hit the pan. Cook until golden brown underneath, just a couple minutes, before flipping them and cooking them on the reverse side until golden and crisp as well. Drain on paper towels, but be gentle as they are still fragile. You can keep them warm in a 200 degree oven while cooking off the rest of the batter, adding more oil as needed and letting pan cool between batches if it gets too hot.
Serve scattered with reserved scallion stems, if desired, topped with a crispy egg or alongside a dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt. They also make a wonderful meal with a big salad. Leftovers keep well in the fridge for a few days.
Watch the ubiquitous sparrows in Gan Haatzmaot. On a spring or summer morning they quiver from branch to branch, their wings catching the wind like sails. When they diminish in number it’s a signal that the watering spots on the cement are drying, and the air’s humidity from overnight has been sucked dry. I try to exercise before 11:AM. The body heats up and reaches a time to rest. Miraculously, that halt coincides with Hashem’s glorious day. A breeze turns the corner and drifts closer and closer and in a second it lovingly smacks me in the face, as a nother wave hits. Here’s a suggestion for a better origin of the timely breeze – it was flooding around me, but until I stopped and felt and breathed, it passed unnoticed.
From Leora Parker:
I hope you will be able to come to the opening tonight, 6:PM. It is a beautiful exhibit featuring Jerusalem as different artists and photographers see it. It adorns every available wall space in AACI in Talpiot.
I will be bringing extra artwork for sale for the Opening as well as many as the other artists may do also. A lovely catalog will also be available along with refreshments.
If you can’t make it for the opening, you can still come and see the exhibit during their regular hours until June 29th. AACI ph. 02-566-1181
Come and support the art and artists in Israel.
