Rami's Israel Cheese Guide - 3

Cheese Shop - Mahane Yehuda Market JerusalemShavuot (Feast of Weeks, or Penetecost) is celebrated seven weeks after Passover)and is the third ancient agriculture holiday in the Jewish tradition. Shavuot celebrates the first fruits of the harvest and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.

 

The culinary tradition associated with Shavuot is the eating of dairy foods. There are many explanations (some religious and some agricultural) associated with this tradition but I will mention two of my favorites here: firstly, Shavuot falls at the season of the year with most milk production and secondly, the white clean color of milk is associated to the holy ceremony of the acceptance of the in Mount Sinai.

 

All the dairies in Israel (and on top of 3 huge ones and around 10 smaller ones there are about 100 of them in all) are preparing for Shavuot special events.

Nahal Saar Golan
January 2013 was particularly wet, with dramatic storms, a healthy rise in the level of the Kinneret and even a very heavy Snowfall in Jerusalem.

One of the favorite places with locals was the Saar Waterfall and Spring. The Saar is located on the main road (99 at junction with 989) from Kiriyat Shemona to the northern Golan, to the Druze Villages of Majdal Shaams & Maasade and to the Mount Hermon resort and national park.
