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.
There will be a lesson tonight by Gil Kopatch at 20:00 at the Steinsaltz Center in Hebrew tonight

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.

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.

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.

Bourekas are a popular Mediterranean appetizer, side dish or snack food.Israeli Kitchen

Potato bourekas

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.
