Post 443: Restart Party-fix your broken electronics-also fix furniture next meeting July 17th

  • I am sorry that I didn’t get this out earlier:

    Friday, June 16, 2017

    10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

  • גלריית שודדי ים

    מסילת ישרים 27, נחלאות, Jerusalem (map)

  • זיו 0545611292

ברוכים הבאים למסיבת התיקונים!

פסולת אלקטרונית היא אחד מזרמי הפסולת בעל הצמיחה המהירה ביותר במדינות רבות ובינהן ישראל. בעוד המיחזור חשוב, אנחנו רוצים להתערב לפני שזורקים לאשפה – ע”י מתן השראה לאנשים לקנות משהו שיחזיק לאריכות ימים ולהסיט מוצרי אלקטרוניקה מלהפוך לפסולת. אנחנו רוצים לעזור לאנשים ללמוד לתקן את המוצרים האלקטרוניים שלהם באירוע קהילתי.

הרעיון פשוט:

1. מביאים דברים שהתקלקלו לכם בבית ואין מה לעשות איתם אבל חבל לזרוק

2. מנסים לתקן אותו ביחד ובדרך לומדים איך דברים עובדים

3. אם הצלחנו, מעולה! לא צריך לקנות חדש!

4. אם לא הצלחנו, נוכל למצוא רעיונות לדברים שאפשר לבנות מהמכשיר המקולקל

רוצים לעזור כאנשי תיקונים? יש לכם מומחיות במשהו מיוחד?
צרו איתנו קשר (:

מה כדאי להביא?

• מכשירי חשמל קטנים (טוסטרים, קומקומים וכו’)

• מחשבים (ניידים ונייחים)

• מכשירים אלקטרונים בגדלים שונים

מוזמנים להציע עוד רעיונות…

הכניסה כמובן חופשית!!

The fastest growing waste streams in many countries including Israel are electronics.. While recycling is important, we intervene before disposal – inspiring people to buy for longevity and to divert electronics from waste.
We help people learn to repair their own electronics in a community event.
The idea is simple:

1. You bring your spoiled or broken things from home that you have nothing to do with them but it’s a shame to throw them away

2. Together we try to fix it and learning how things work on the way

3. If we succeed, excellent! No need to buy a new!

4. If we failed, we can find ideas for things you can build out of the broken device

What should you bring?

• Small appliances (toasters, kettles etc.)

• Computers (portable and stationary)

• electronic devices of different sizes

You’re invited to suggest other ideas…

Entry is free of course !!

Friday Night Singles Shabbat at the OU Center: ages 25-45:Taxi fares for people leaving Ben-Gurion International Airport are due to fall 12% starting Monday, but not all drivers will be charging the lower fare.

Under the interim plan announced by the Israel Airport Authority on Sunday, drivers who agree to the lower fare will be allowed to pick up passengers at the ground-level arrivals hall. Those charging the higher fare will be confined to the departures level, where there is far less business for them.

ה חוש הומור?

השיעור יעסוק בהומור בתלמוד וינסה להראות שההשערה שהתלמוד הוא ספר נטול הומור מוטעית ולא נכונה.

הסוגיא העיקרית בה יעסוק השיעור פותחת בסיפור על חכם הנכנס אחר רבו לשירותים כדי לעקוב אחר מעשיו שם, וממשיכה לחכם אחר הנכנס אחר רבו לחדר שינה כדי לעקוב אחר מעשיו עם אשתו. מה הטענה שמצדיקה התנהגות חריגה כזו?

בסוגיות נוספות נראה באיזה סיטואציה נאלץ רבי אליעזר לרדת מן החמור שלו ולהתחנן לאדם מכוער אחר שיסלח לו? ובסיפור אחר נעקוב אחר התערבות של שני אנשים האם ניתן לעצבן את הלל הזקן נשיא הסנהדרין? נלמד כמובן גם על האופן בו ניסו לעצבן אותו.

לסיפורים אלו המפורטים בגמרא מצורפת הוראה מעשית לגבי התנהגות האדם: תמיד להיות רך כקנה ולא קשה כארז, ולהיות ענוותן ולא קפדן.

Does the Talmud  sense of humor? The lesson will deal with humor in the Talmud and will attempt to show that the Talmud is a book without humor that is wrong and incorrect. The main topic that the shiur will deal with begins with the story of a sage who enters after his master to the bathroom to follow his actions there, and continues to another sage who enters after his master into a bedroom to follow his actions with his wife. What is the argument that justifies such unusual behavior? On other issues we shall see in what situation Rabbi Eliezer was forced to descend from his donkey and plead with another ugly person to forgive him. And in another story we will follow the intervention of two people. Can we annoy Hillel the Elder, the president of the Sanhedrin? We will also learn about how they tried to annoy him. These stories that are detailed in the Gemara are accompanied by a practical teaching regarding human behavior: always be soft as a nest and not too harsh, and be humble :

מחר יתקיים שיעור מאת גיל קופטש בשעה 20:00 במרכז שטיינזלץ.
השיעור יועבר בשידור ישיר
Will take place this week, in hopes and prayers that the rabbi will return to the weekly shiur in Chasidut.

Post 441:Pepe’s Last Battle – If anyone is interested in volunteering for the Maccabiah – the dates are 4/7 till 18/7., volunteer’s meeting this Wednesday. (From Klara LeVine): The International Book Fair begins tonight, (Monday) through Thursday.

On Thursday 8.06 at 20:30 I viewed a film screening of  the documentary, called Pepe’s Last Battle at Barbur Gallery.

F0_0540_0329_PepeLastBattle

Director: Michael Alalu

Pepe Alalu, one of the left-secular leaders in Jerusalem, introduced  the film, In it he is running for mayor,  the candidate of the  Left Wing Party Meretz. In fact he was present to introduce the film. “In a divided city that is becoming more religious and right wing, he knows his chances are low. Still, he believes that his run is important as an idealistic alternative and a ray of hope for the insecure future of the Israeli left-wing. His son, Michael, the director of the film, decides to help Pepe in his fight against windmills.” (from Barbur site). Much of the film was archival footage of Pepe with his family and Pepe speaking at party meetings and Pepe in his office as Deputy Mayor. There was Pepe reaching out to Arab Israeli tribal leaders and the same leaders looking at him quizzically.

Pepe gained a lot of support in his run during the Cottage Cheese Boycott. The cottage cheese boycott (Hebrew: מחאת הקוטג‎‎ or חרם הקוטג) was an Israeli consumer boycott which began in June 2011 using Facebook. The protest was against the continuing rise of food prices in Israel. The organizers called on the public to stop buying cottage cheese, which is perceived as a basic food item in Israel. Within a short time, 100,000 users joined the Facebook protest page.  As the boycott gained momentum, it sparked a public debate on the high cost of living in Israel.

Despite special sales campaigns designed to tempt shoppers, supermarket chains reported a sharp drop in the purchase of cottage cheese by Israel’s three leading dairies, and the price of cottage cheese in the country was lowered.

I remember the tent city in Tel Aviv and a smaller version  in Gan Ha Atz Ma’Ot and in a park near the Central Bus Station. The latter one was populated by soldiers. The families camping in Gn Ha Atz Ma’Ot spent several weeks in tents in during the hottest part of the summer. The grasses turned brown and the families went back to Haifa. I brought them ice for their coolers.

I am now part of a Municipal Forum for English Speaking Jerusalem volunteers.

I was sent this request for Volunteers for the Maccabiah, which I am passing on to you.

If anyone is interested in volunteering for the Maccabiah – the dates are 4/7 till 18/7. Contact person is Michal Magen, she is looking for English speaking volunteers – it is possible to work shifts at your convenience –  Please show up in front of #7 Safir Square near the Iriya at 6:00 PM. She will escort the group to a meeting.

(From Klara LeVine):

The International Book Fair begins tonight, (Monday) through Thursday. There’s a full page ad in last Friday’s Jerusalem Post Magazine. Authors will be appearing at different times. What caught my eye is a book called Five Seasons in the Kitchen: Zen Inspired Vegan Cooking, by Avital Sebbag, who will be appearing Thursday, 15 June, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the First Station (the old railroad station).

I looked up the book and you can read some of it here https://www.amazon.com/Five-Seasons-Kitchen-Inspired-Cooking-ebook/dp/B01ELQDRGM#reader_B01ELQDRGM https://www.amazon.com/Five-Seasons-Kitchen-Inspired-Cooking-ebook/dp/B01ELQDRGM#reader_B01ELQDRGM

What I found missing was the concept of yin and yang creating balance. Yes, she explained the seasons and their effects well but when I looked more on her fb page and looked at the recipes closer, seems to be what many raw foodists enthuse about, shakes, salads and more yin kinds of ingredients. Many will say what’s wrong with that. Nothing if you know that is what you need for balance.

If anybody does go to listen to her, or purchase her book, I’d love to know your impressions.

Post 440: A graphic alphabet combining Arabic and Hebrew is introduced. Read Ann Birstein’s biography- YARD SALE AACI YARD SALE- . Friday, June 9th 8:30 – 12:30

As many of my readers know, I am truly enthralled with Hebrew , so much so, that I have sign on to my second “Five Year Plan” towards the goal of reading a Hebrew Language newspaper fluently. Arabic study is another pre-occupation of mine over the last few years.

Truly amazing: http://jewishstandard.timesofisrael.com/an-israelis-alphabet-combines-hebrew-and-arabic-to-promote-understanding/03-1-F-Aravrit-words

The above seem to be cities: (English)-right side second from the bottom: ACCO

Image result for Aravite alphabet combines hebrew and arabic

 

In the above example, the letters in Arabic and Hebrew are two unrelated letters. They don’t sound alike. They are pretty, though.

A graduate of Shenkar College Turkenich, 32, was inspired to create Aravrit by the road signs in Haifa, the mixed Jewish and Arab city where she was born and has lived most of her life. Although many of the signs feature Arabic — along with Hebrew and English — she realized that she had always ignored the lettering, which like most Israeli Jews she cannot read.

For her final undergraduate project, Turkenich set out to combine Hebrew and Arabic lettering in a way that would allow them to “live together,” as she put it. She started by revisiting the work of French ophthalmologist Louis Émile Javal, who in the late 19th century found that people can read pretty well using only the top half of Latin letters. With some experimenting, Turkenich discovered that the same is true of Arabic — and by happy coincidence, the opposite holds for Hebrew.

“In Hebrew, most of the identifying characteristics of letters’ forms are near the bottom part,” she said. “When I went to check Arabic, I crossed my fingers that they would be on the top half — and they were!”

Based on this insight, Turkenich combined each of the 22 letters in Hebrew with each of the 29 in Arabic to create an Aravrit alphabet with 638 characters. Vowels are used as needed for legibility — below the Hebrew letters and above the Arabic ones, per the languages’ respective rules. Turkenich tested the Hebrew elements on herself and her friends. For advice on the Arabic, she turned to Arab-Israeli commuters on her daily train ride from Haifa to Tel Aviv.

“Whenever I heard someone speaking Arabic, I would ask them if they had time to answer a few questions. They always said yes,” she recalled, noting that she now has Arab friends who help.

Aravrit’s letters can be combined to form words or sentences. A Hebrew-speaker should be able to read the bottom half or the words, and an Arabic-speaker should be able to read the top half. For example, the Aravrit word for “peace” would say “salaam” on top and “shalom” on the bottom.

She has incorporated alternative forms of letters in both languages — some Hebrew letters take on a different form at the end of words — and connected the Arabic elements in traditional cursive style. The changes have given her the flexibility to craft each word in a unique way, and she is working on writing down the rules.

Turkenich said she gets lots of requests to write Aravrit, including recently from the head of a small mostly Jewish city in Israel that she declined to name. She also teaches and gives lectures about her work in Israel and around the world. Aravrit is currently on exhibit at The Museum of Islamic and Near Eastern Cultures in Beersheva   http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Aravrit-A-language-of-coexistence-in-the-Middle-East-494459

Anne Birstein , a writer, was married to Alfred Kazin. Any student of American literary criticism, referred to his social literary writings. But few are aware of the accomplishments of his student and wife Amme Birstein.

A well respected writer in the New Yorker and the New York Times, Birstein penned the  biography of her father, The Rabbi on Forty-Seventh Street, which  delves deep into her Hell’s Kitchen childhood, college life and experiences among cliquish New York City intellectuals.

Her father, Rabbi Bernard Birstein, headed the noted “Actors Temple,” a synagogue that counted Milton Berle, Eddie Cantor, Jack Benny and Sophie Tucker among its members. After beginning with a wryly humorous segment on her visit to a German town bearing her last name, Birstein chronicles her struggles to be accepted by gentiles while retaining her Jewishness. Particularly entertaining are Birstein’s anecdotes of her family, school days and experiences during the 1940s, full of her trademark sardonic observations. Birstein was convinced she’d never be married and is acerbic in her assessments of her young beaux, including one lover who seduced her and then announced his homosexuality, and another who was “a Southern gent scared of Jewish girls but thrilled with them.” But singledom ended when Birstein met the highly respected writer and critic Alfred Kazin, an older divorcé who transformed her future by winning her heart and thrusting her into the heady world of New York letters, involving parties with Clark Gable, Saul Bellow, James Baldwin, Hannah Arendt, Ralph Ellison and others. Birstein’s heartfelt recounting of the writer’s life, her turbulent marriage, her divorce from Kazin and later emergence as an influential scribe in her own right will elicit readers’ admiration. https://www.publishersweekly.com/978-1-56649-267-6

For those of my readers who plan to visit America: “The Jim Henson Exhibition” at the Museum of the Moving Image, opens July 22, 2017.
Following the Museum of the Moving Image’s  Jim Henson (1936–1990) exhibition in 2011, which offered a fascinating peek into the fertile imagination of the creator of the Muppets, Henson’s family made a major donation to the New York museum of over 500 objects from his archives. A permanent exhibition was in the works for four years, and will finally open its doors following a successful Kickstarter campaign this spring that raised over $144,000. Among the highlights will be the chance to see 47 of the puppets for Henson’s iconic characters in person, including Big Bird, Elmo, Kermit and Piggy, the Swedish Chef, and characters from Fraggle Rock and The Dark Crystal.

The Museum of the Moving image is located at 36-01 35 Ave, Astoria, Queens, and is open Wednesday–Thursday, 10:30 a.m.–2 p.m.; Friday, 10:30 a.m.–8 p.m.; and Saturday–Sunday, 11:30 a.m.–7 p.m. General admission is $15.

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.

Join us as we have a special guided tour of the historical site where one of the major battles took place over Jerusalem. The guided tour tells the story of the battle on Ammunition Hill. During the tour we will walk the paths of the paratroopers who fought here. We will talk about the morals that guided the soldiers here during this crucial battle: heroism, courage, initiative and more.

Following the tour, for those who are interested, we invite you to join us (via lightrail train) as we head over to Shuk Machane Yehuda for lunch.

We invite all alumni to join us with their families or dates for this special event. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ammunition-hill-tour-tickets-30753461431 . Tickets are free

Did you know Israel has a Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel (Likud)? The Knesset in March 2017  approved the second and third readings of the Social Equality Ministry’s law proposal which would allow Israeli citizens over age 80 to receive public services without waiting in line.

Currently only a few places allow the elderly to skip lines. The new law proposes to turn this benefit into a right. This will save the elderly time which otherwise would have been spent waiting in line, but is, of course, aimed at helping them physically by saving them the effort of standing in line for lengthy periods of time.The new law allows the elderly to skip lines in banks, supermarkets, post offices, cinemas, theaters, events, sports stadiums, galleries, museums, libraries, national gardens, nature reserves, and other places.

Subject: Fwd: URGENT ACTION NEEDED TO GET SARSOUR’S CUNY INVITATION RESCINDED! 3 THINGS WE CAN DO!

Dear Friends of Israel and the Jewish People,

1) It is urgent that we contact Chancellor Milliken’s office via phone calls (646-664-9100) and emails (chancellor@cuny.edu mailto:

chancellor@cuny.edu) demanding that he rescind City University’s invitation to Linda Sarsour to be the commencement speaker at the graduation ceremony of the School of Public Health. As of this morning, his secretary was answering his phone and promising to give him all messages.

The choice of Linda Sarsour as a commencement speaker is shocking and appalling to those of us who are CUNY graduates, who have children attending CUNY AND to those of us who pay NYC and NY State taxes!

Sarsour openly declared that the convicted terrorist, Rasmeah Odeh, is her hero–a woman who killed two people and wounded nine others in a supermarket bombing in Israel. Sarsour virulently supports boycott, sanctions, and divestment against Israel, the aim of which is economically cripple and, ultimately, destroy the Jewish state. Sarsour masquerades as a feminist but has used violent and obscene language to denigrate women who have spoken out about the mistreatment of women by Islamists. Sarsour has publicly said that feminism cannot include those women who believe that Israel should exist as a Jewish state. Sarsour claims she is a feminist even as she defends Sharia Law which severely restricts women’s freedom. Sarsour is free to express herself….but given her discriminatory and anti-Semitic views, she should not be given a platform to speak at a taxpayer-funded institution that serves ALL people in this city and state. We are also shocked that the commencement ceremony of the CUNY School of Public Health is being held on June 1st, a major Jewish holiday. The date should be changed.
2) Calls should also be made to Governor Cuomo at 212-257-6405 and 518-474-8390 (in Albany). Demand that all resources at his disposal be used to rescind the invitation extended to Linda Sarsour, a virulent unapologetic supporter of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel which has as its ultimate goal the destruction of the State of Israel. It was Governor Cuomo who said, “If you boycott Israel, we will boycott you.”

3) Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who is at the forefront of the fight to get Sarsour’s CUNY invitation rescinded, Nonie Darwish and others will be speaking at a demonstration, spearheaded by Pamela Geller, in front of the CUNY administrative offices at 217 East 42nd St., NYC on Thursday, May 25 from 12-2 p.m. We hope to see you there.

In the words of Jeff Wiesenfeld, “This is a seminal moment in which lack of action will bring regret.”

Falafel Chickpea Patties Recipe

Healthy Vegan Falafel

Healthy vegan falafel recipe, without deep frying, GF flour or eggs and with lots of fresh parsley!

Author: Ruxandra Micu

Cuisine: Middle Eastern

Serves: 20+ falafels

Ingredients

  • 2 400g cans boiled chickpea (You can use dry too, but if you want to have these chickpea patties ready in 25 minutes, then you should use canned chickpeas. If you’ll use dry chickpeas, you have to soak them overnight)
  • 2 Tbsps  ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated omitted
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 garlic cloves, mashed
  • 4 Tbsps chickpea flour, or any other type of flour- I left out
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsps tahini paste
  • oil (3-4 Tbsps) for frying

Instructions

  1. Add boiled chickpeas in the food processor and blend well until they have a paste-like consistency.

  2. Put them in a large bowl and blend in all the other ingredients, except oil.

  3. Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan or heat oil on a paper lined tray in the oven.

  4. Remove tray

  5. Make the patties – Here’s the trick. Use a tea leak holder with the tiny openings in the sides. Frill the tea leak holder with the mixture just OVER the capacity. Cover and squeeze the holder closed. Several drops of liquid will come out. Your parsley has been added to the mixture before hand- 1 Tbsps per patty.

  6. Fry them 2 minutes on each side.or bake/

  7. Put the falafels on a plate covered with a paper towel, in order to absorb all excess oil.

  8. Serve!

Can you imagine any European country doing this to protect an American president?

Posted to the Old City residents:

“As part of the police preparation for the Trump visit, they (sic), the security police, are distributing a form to all car owners. In order to avoid any unpleasant situation, it is to be filled out with your personal information and your cars details and place it inside your front windshield in a VERY VISIBLE PLACE. The forms have been placed on all cars in the lot.

If the Shabak or police have any concern regarding a car parked in the lot they will be able to easily reach the owner.

This request is for all cars parked in BOTH lots.

Thank you for your cooperation.”

Another reason to not own a car in Jerusalem.

The Minhal requests that everyone cooperate in order to save time and trouble for the police…and members of the parking committee.

Savannah Buttermint Ice Cream

A salty, buttery mint ice cream with white chocolate flecks. Turmeric adds a soft ivory yellow.

Savannah Butter mint Ice Cream was inspired by the pastel-colored white chocolate sticks found in old-timey chocolate shops and those powdery, melt-in-your-mouth mint candies in the restaurants of our grandparents’ generation. It’s slightly salty, minty, and very buttery. The white chocolate flecks give it a pronounced creaminess.

There is a special ingredient in this ice cream: the butter flavor. A bit of turmeric gives the ice cream color but no added flavor. The creamy pale yellow hue sets the mood for butter mint:

Makes about 1 quart

2 cups whole  milk

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 ounces white chocolate, chopped
8 drops natural butter flavor
3 to 4 drops pure peppermint

essential oil

Pairs well with:  Chocolate cake or fudge brownies.

PREP
Mix about 2 tablespoons of the milk with the cornstarch in a small bowl to make a smooth slurry.

Whisk the cream cheese, salt, and turmeric in a medium bowl until smooth. Fill a large bowl with ice and water.

COOK
Combine the remaining milk, the cream, sugar, and corn syrup in a 4-quart saucepan, bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat, and boil for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and gradually whisk in the cornstarch slurry. Bring the mixture back to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, stirring with a heatproof spatula, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

CHILL
Gradually whisk the hot milk mixture into the cream cheese until smooth. Pour the mixture into a 1-gallon Zip loc freezer bag, and submerge the sealed bag in the ice bath. Let stand, adding more ice as necessary, until cold, about 30 minutes.

FREEZE
When the ice cream is almost ready to be churned, melt the white chocolate in a double boiler; let cool slightly.

Pour the ice cream base into the frozen canister and turn on the machine. Drop the butter flavoring and peppermint through the opening in the top of the machine. Slowly drizzle in the melted chocolate; it will form into flecks in the churning cream. Continue to spin the ice cream until thick and creamy.

Pack the ice cream into a storage container, press a sheet of parchment directly against the surface, and seal with an airtight lid. Freeze in the coldest part of your freezer until firm, at least 4 hours.

As a youth, Shlomo Horowitz assisted with establishing the Insect Room at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo. Ever since then, with the exception of his years in yeshivah and the IDF, he has been involved with the care of exotic animals and wildlife education. Shlomo has taught classes in zoology and nature at numerous schools in Jerusalem. Aside from weekly classes in several schools, he also taught special sessions at over fifty haredi Talmud Torahs as part of the Jerusalem Municipality’s “Noah’s Ark” projects. He has also led teacher-training sessions for biology teachers in the haredi education system, amongst many other education projects.

Shlomo’s university studies were in the field of geology. He has collected some unique fossils in Israel, including a hippopotamus tusk from the Kinneret and an elephant tusk from Sodom, and he has published articles on his fossil discoveries in Teva HaDevarim magazine. Shlomo has a large collection of exotic animals, biological artifacts and fossils, which he maintains in a Pinat Chai at Sedeh Bar in Gush Etziyon.

The Biblical Museum of Natural History is located at 5 Ha-Tzaba Street, in the northern industrial zone of Beit Shemesh.
