How devastating was the force of this raging storm over Florida!  Remember your social studies, Spanish explorer Ponce de León, named it for the day he arrived, “Flowering Easter”. Some flower.

Szechuan Tofu, Pepper, Cabbage, Konjak and mung bean thread boodles

Bean Thread Noodles

Bean thread noodles, also named as mung bean noodles, cellophane noodles or bean vermicelli is a popular non-flour noodle in Chinese cuisine. It is healthy, easy to prepare and always taste great in stir-fry dishes, soups, stews and salad.

Bean thread noodles (中(zhōng)文(wén):绿(lǜ)豆(dòu)粉(fěn)丝(sī)) belongs to glass noodle group. There are also sweet potato thread noodles (红(hóng)薯(shǔ)粉(fěn)), konjak thread noodles(魔(mó)芋(yù)粉(fěn)), pea thread noodles (豌(wān)豆(dòu)粉(fěn)丝(sī)) and etc. Among them, mung bean thread noodle is the most famous and popular one. We Chinese call it thread baby noodles (丝宝宝). What a cute name, right?

 

Bean thread noodles salad

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 ounces firm tofu-
  • Konjak wide noodles
  • Sweet Chili Sauce about 1/3 cup for 2 lbs tofu
  • 1 package dried angel hair green bean noodles
  • ½ cup chicken stock or vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or more or softened miso
  • ½ teaspoon sugar or omit
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil, rice bran oil or grape seed oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 or lore large garlic cloves, minced
  • sweet chili sauce- to your taste to addd last few minutes of stir fry, before vegetables.
  • ½ medium cabbage, chopped (about 1/2 pound, 5 cups chopped)
  • 1 red pepper, cut in 2-inch long julienne
  •  Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup broken walnuts or omit
  •  Cooked rice or quinoa for serving

PREPARATION

  1. Cut the tofu into dominoes or cubes and drain between paper towels. In a flat glass tray or measuring cup combine the stock, 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce, the sugar, rice wine or sherry, and the sesame oil. Place tofu in this mixture. Remove 1 tablespoon to a small bowl and stir in the cornstarch.  (I omit the cornstarch). Stir until it has dissolved. Let sit at least half day and turn so all sides are covered. Have all the ingredients within arm’s length of your pan.

  2. Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or 12-inch steel skillet over high heat until a drop of water evaporates within a second or two when added to the pan. Swirl in 1 tablespoon of the oil by adding it to the sides of the pan and swirling the pan, then add the tofu and stir-fry until golden, about 3 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or to taste), toss together for a few seconds, add chili sauce, and transfer to a plate. Alternatively, if you are making enough for a crowd or to have leftovers, place tofu in a paper lined tray and bake in a 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.

    • Remove and stir fry in batches.

    The sauce is used to marinate the noodles.

  3. Open package of conjak and rinse. the green bean noodles are brittle. Have a large bowl filled with boiled water available and place the green bean noodles in the water for 2 minutes  to soften.

  4. Swirl in the remaining oil, add the garlic and ginger to the wok and stir-fry for no more than 10 seconds. Add the red pepper and stir-fry for 1 minute, or until it begins to soften, and add the cabbage and walnuts. Stir-fry for 1 minute, add salt and pepper to taste, and stir-fry for another 1 to 2 minutes, until crisp-tender. Return the tofu to the wok, stir in the walnuts and the stock/soy sauce mixture and stir-fry for another minute, until it has just about evaporated. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and stir-fry until the ingredients are lightly glazed. Stir in the noodles and keep stirring. Remove from the heat and serve with quinoa or rice.

Post 451: Punctuation in Hebrew or lack of it, ATIME Israel and Meals with Heart

A Matter of Punctuation from Orly and Yoal/Ulpan Or

​Shalom, (From Orly)

Being so busy with moving to our new office did not leave much time to put together our usual newsletter.

But, many of our students told us how much they expect to get it, so we are posting a short one.

As we previously mentioned, this was not a planned move, we were forced to leave our previous location because of the construction which is starting soon right under the windows of the previous office.

So, this unexpected move reminded us of the verse in Proverbs 19, 21:

רַבּוֹת מַחֲשָׁבוֹת בְּלֶב-אִישׁ וַעֲצַת ה’ הִיא תָקוּם

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. A literal translation of this verse:

Many are the thoughts in man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s advice “it/she” that will stand up. (Notice no commas in Hebrew).

A story is told about a young couple with a baby crying all night long. Both husband and wife are exhausted and here the baby cries again.

 

 

The husband says to his wife: You get up now.

She says to him: No, you get up.

He: You get up.

She: You get up.

 

The baby is still crying and the couple continues to argue.

 

Then the husband tries to manipulate the wife using his knowledge of the bible. He recalls the above verse and says – it clearly states:

רַבּוֹת מַחֲשָׁבוֹת בְּלֶב-אִישׁ וַעֲצַת ה’ –   הִיאתָקוּם

Many are the thoughts in man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s advice – “ she” should get up.

But, the young wife knew better. She said –  you should read the verse with the following punctuation:

רַבּוֹת מַחֲשָׁבוֹת בְּלֶב-אִישׁ וַעֲצַת ה’ הִיא –  תָקוּם

Many are the thoughts in man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s advice – “ you” should get up.

(In Hebrew verbs in future tense for second person masculine and third person feminine are the same)

 

​ 

 

Wishing you:

 

Shabbat Shalom,

 

Orly & Yoel

Making up a Brochure for Love Your Lymph Exercise class – more information latter this week

Vegetarian Moroccan : From Spruce.com:Mixed Vegetable Tagine

What You’ll Need

  • 1/4
  • cup olive oil or argan oil
  • 1
  • onion, sliced into rings
  • carrots, peeled and cut in half lengthwise (or sliced)
  • 2 tomatoes, thickly sliced
  • 2 or 3 small zucchini. cut in half lengthwise or thickly sliced
  • 1 or 2 large potatoes, peeled and quartered (or cut into 1/4″ thick slices)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • pinch of saffron threads, crumbled (optional)
  • a handful of red or green olives (optional)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley or cilantro, for garnish

How to Make It

  I just returned from the shuk with a load of yellow and orange vegetables  It’s always nice to combine some frozen vegetables with squash, zucchini and  pumpkin gourds

  1. Wash and prep the vegetables

  2. Place the potatoes, carrots, and zucchini in a bowl; add the spices and toss to coat the vegetables evenly

  3. Pour half of the oil into the base of a tagine or in a skillet. Add the onion slices and top with the tomato slices

  4. Arrange the vegetables in conical fashion on top the tomatoes; or, if they were sliced, layer the vegetables over the tomatoes: first the carrots, then the potatoes, then the zucchini

  5. Add the olives. Drizzle the remaining oil

Rinse the spices from       the bowl which held the potatoes by swirling one cup of water in the bowl. Add this water to the tagine or skillet and cover

  1. Place over medium-low to medium heat (use a diffuser between a tagine and the burner) and bring to a simmer. It’s normal for this to take 15 or 20 minutes if cooking in clay, so stay patient.

  2. Once you hear the tagine simmering, adjust the heat to the lowest temperature necessary for maintaining a simmer. Allow the tagine to cook undisturbed for about one to one-and-a-half hours. Check to see that the vegetables are tender and reduce any excess liquid

  3. Garnish the tagine with the chopped parsley or cilantro and serve warm

 

Post 447: Trip to Shilo and several other soaring places tomorrow, Listening to Lisa Aiken, PHD, Dinner on the Hudson, Tuesday, August 15, 2017, Contra Dance in Ramot Bet, Vertigo Dance Performance

If you have never been to Shilo or its rich environs and a few years have  passed since your last trip nearby, you have an opportunity for a free trip tomorrow: I found out about this a few hours ago: All the details are provided on the link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfO9s_IrWMrFOnzazunpqeXE16fuyOzPW6TM11kwbVEnouCdw/viewform

A simple thing like joining a Webinar is a challenge with it’s frustrations. In fact, Lisa Aiken’s talk could have been entitled, “How to meet the Challenge of Joining a Webinar”. Yes  to get it started is a challenge . For on old hand, it can be a trifle. I felt it  empowered by getting and staying connected. a seminar conducted over the Internet.

What is a webinar? A webinar is a seminar conducted over the Internet.

I’m sorry to say that my idea of a seminar is a class at a college or university in which a topic is discussed by a teacher and a small group of students, and the burden of the class falls increasingly on the students.

At the beginning of the webinar the manager announced that 40+ students enrolled. During the hour she listed some of the single word answers of listeners. No feedback.

Notwithstanding the fact that Dr. Aiken’s message was well developed, it wasn’t so  important what she said, because, there was a sense of familiarity to it.

But getting on to a webinar, that was new, for me anyhow.

Some may say the purpose of a webinar is for arousing interest, where little or none exists. That person would not join a webinar; he uses his time to follow his range of interests and none other. Touchy-feely talks are seen as a waste of time. Dr. Aiken wore her therapist’s cap throughout, and had you think for a brief moment that a therapy session was in progress.

When one joins a Webinar you have a general idea of the contents. After a single listening experience,  I know that a webinar is really another type of Info-mercial, a television program that promotes a product in an informative and supposedly objective way, in this case promoting a series of Lisa Aiken webinars.

Heaven is wonderful, but getting there is most of the fun. This statement has been attributed to the Chofetz Chiam. I imagine the “fun” that the great Chofetz Chiam is referring to is the trial of living a life  seeking a connection to his creator. On the outside he lived a life of great difficulty and what we would call poverty. It was “Life”. He saw life with a capital “L”. Nothing was trivial.

His spiritual life was rich beyond imagination.

The speaker is Dr. Lisa Aiken.  Her topic, Overcoming Challenges with Resilience, was about “Life”. She urged us to make our stresses into small trivialities.

Firstly, what is a challenge? As a typical therapist, she threw the question out to her listeners. You’ve undoubtedly been in a room where the psychologist asks the audience members to utter their personal challenges.

Then after hearing complaints of the mundane variety from a somewhat embarrassed audience of listeners, the speaker comes up with some heavy complaints and then some and guess what, Dr. Aiken continued, “those folks are sunny and bright and not down on the world.”

I suspected she would supply many stories and examples from her hospital patients. One  a woman, suffered a stroke in her ninth month of pregnancy

Dr. Aiken was summoned to tell the woman that after delivery, she would never be able to walk or hold her baby. The lady burst out, “I’ve always been told that I was a good for nothing. You’ll see, I’ll be back in three months walking and holding my baby”. Three months later she proved Dr. Aiken wrong. More to the point, the woman didn’t know how resilient she was. But she learned and taught Dr.Aiken a thing or two.

Other stories were told describing near fatal accidents, that in the end helped wake up folks to the dangers of living in the fast lane of drugs and alcohol.

Making the necessary changes in their lives didn’t happen UNTIL they felt isolated, with  their backs up against the wall, without family, friends, job etc.

Post 446-Three issues for Retirees-Voting no on Upcoming NYState Convention, lowering parking costs in Tel Avi, launching a second career as a lymphedema specialist/therapist, and Last chance to view USA and Canadian ice-hockey teams at the Maccabiah games

Members of New York City’s United Federation of Teachers retire and rely on the three pillars of retirement security: Social Security, a pension and free employer-sponsored health insurance. Many UFT members also have a fourth pillar to bolster their retirement security: a Tax-Deferred Annuity.

However, UFT members’ pensions are among the many benefits at risk if New Yorkers vote this fall to hold a constitutional convention.

Please Vote “no” on Nov. 7. New York should not hold a state constitutional convention.

For those contemplating a new career: There are scholarships to train as a lymphedema therapist.

Looking for a break in Tel Aviv  parking?-This system allows you to reserve on line: http://nofryers.com/reserve-your-space-park-in-tel-aviv-israel-for-half-price-with-pink-park/

Looking for a Break in the Heat? Last Chance to see USA and Canadian Maccabiah Champions! Just a  bus ride away!
Near Malcha Mall, the Benvenishti/mass of bus stop is close to
the Pais Arena- Finals Sunday
at 7pm where the Irya has set up a full size hockey rink.
There are lots of great pictures and some video highlights on the Final Teams. Admission is free, there’s lots of parking, lots of buses stop there, and the hockey is GREAT! As expected, the Yanks and Canucks will be battling for gold and neither side has come for second place, so the game is expected to be very exciting.
Not only that, but the city is leaving the rink in for public skating after
Maccabiah until at least the middle of August!
Due to public pressure the game time was moved from 8:30 to 9 Motzei Shabbat to accommodate
frum hockey fans. Yes, there are LOTS of frum hockey fans, let alone frum hockey players in Israel (we got 20 people for mincha after the the
USA-Canada game last Thursday!).
Please come and cheer and enjoy great high-level competitive ice hockey without having to drive all the way to Metulla! Bring flags, wear hockey shirts and hats, and come cheer and support ice hockey in Israel.

Post 445: Link to Jerusalem Light Festival, Street Party July 7th Noon Rechove Ben Yehuda, Jump Rope and resilience, reaching out to breast cancer survivors and volunteers, way to find a particular gravesite in Jerusalem

This post is about energy-Maybe you have some energy to support an initiative to help Breast Cancer Survivors by volunteering some time? Please reply to chavaida@gmail.com.

If you have not seen the Jerusalem light festival tonight’s the last night. http://www.jr.co.il/videos/jerusalem-festival-of-light-2017.htm

The Jerusalem Municipality is throwing a street party on the most exciting street in the city! Everyone is welcome to join friends on Rechove Ben Yehuda to mingle, and relax. Live bands/musicians will provide the entertainment! Noon on Friday, July 7th

I have not been blogging. By breathing slowly in these last heat filled days and dry windy evenings, some chores have been accomplished. Morning jumprope was cut short. I did half my usual and gave myself a break when I read that the temperature was already 90 degrees.

As has been written earlier, my future jump rope for breast health class yet to be filled with students. Dry weather, dry class of students? What to do? Perhaps a little bit of yin and yang can work. Think water. playing near it.

I have been reaching out to professionals and have been asked, “So what are your credentials, yes you are a survivor.” “What is my exercise called? “Lymph and Let Lymph”.

Now, I have more of a “leg to stand on”. I learned that there there is dragon boat racing on the Yarkon in Tel Aviv for women survivors! And the benefits – increasing upper body strength, moving lymph , strengthening bones, increased resilience closely parallel those of rope jumping. https://dragonboatisrael.com/

No water for racing near Jerusalem. However, jumping with a weighted rope is the next best thing to build upper body strength.

When it comes to women who have been through breast cancer treatment there is an instantaneous connection. With the goal of informing other breast cancer organizations about my class, I learned that I needed to have MORE than my enthusiasm on the plate. I made many phone calls to solicit volunteers.

Now I have a team of friend who will be going thru my list of about 60 women who have expressed interest in the class.

May Hashem bless these women volunteers.

I  made connections to medical professionals and  organization in Israel that have yet to see the need for women in treatment to make exercise pivotal.

Here’s where resilience comes in when faced with such challenges.

From Psychology Magazine: Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes. Psychologists have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient, among them a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. Even after misfortune, resilient people are blessed with such an outlook that they are able to change course and soldier on.Resilience is not a shield against suffering. It enables us to feel and to move through emotions like pain and guilt so that we can continue to feel alive and experience happiness.

A diagnosis of Breast Cancer is not the time to buy into the idea that you just feel your feelings and take all the time in the world; what if,  you have other kids at home, a demanding job, and an urgent need to function in the real world? There are concrete strategies for regaining your equilibrium even in the greatest pain. Among them: Choosing where to focus your attention (not on hating someone or something, which consumes energy);  and re-establish routines, particularly if you have children, who may need that structure even more than you do.

Despite her insistence to the contrary, there is a strong whiff of “just-get-on-with-it” matter of factness.  He began to see the wisdom of the writer Isak Dinesen, Karen Christence Dinesen, who said,  “The cure for anything is salt water — sweat, tears, or the sea”.

I don’t mean black humor here!

If you are looking for a relative or other person’s grave: Here’s some light on the subject: Some important information: There are 4 burial societies in Jerusalem that handle Ashkanazi burials and over a dozen all together.

Jerusalem community
Hasidim
Purshim
Western (Mostly French)

In addition, many who claim to be buried in Jerusalem are actually in Eretz Haim near Bet Shemesh.

You must have one or more of the following:

ID number of the deceased, since this can be searched easily.

Name of deceased and father’s name and/or date of death/burial.

No names other than the fathers are usually recorded or searchable.

Once you have found the “address”, finding the grave can still be difficult.
If in Jerusalem Community, there is a map after the parking lot bear to the left and on the right directly after the small building is a map. It is incomplete. If the grave is in a different area, or even in this area, go to the cemetery in the morning and call the society and ask to be directed to the correct spot

Thank Hashen for Shabbas. Here’s my to do list and am genuinely happy to put it aside. Lists are good but sometimes starting at the top is hard.

a) Finish the Medical Form and Liability Release for new hesitant exercise class members and suggest we get together at 7AM before her Ulpan.

b)Prepare Social Media Letter seeking volunteers to call survivors.

c) Separate the list of survivors into Hebrew and English speaking class members.

d) Improve flyer.

e) Prepare Shabat chicken potatoes salad

f) Follow up with organizations request support for survivors who lack funds for class.

g) Try to organize meeting of Volunteers for phone calls on skype so I don’t repeat myself and develop a team.

h) Finish Sewing project. (this has low priority except when I am frustrated).

i) Arrange small move of furniture details straight for next week.

j) Volunteer for Jerusalem Marathon

k) Before moving antique furniture -go to the apartment in Romema and clean, polish, wrap furniture, and tie; bring grandsons if available to help, so movers don’t break the small table.

l ) Get Prescriptions. High priority.

m) Water Roof Plants and maybe buy water replacement drink. So you understand why I am not blogging?

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 !!
