Building Jerusalem

You may not be able to travel there just yet, but
you can build your own little Jerusalem. All
it takes is pens and papers.
First, look at any book that tells the story
of Israel's capital. You'll certainly be able to
find one at your synagogue or temple library,
or even the public library. Take a look at the
shapes of the buildings and homes and see
how different they are from American archi-

Someling Fishy

Try drawing outlines of some of those, and be

sure to make your collection diverse. You could
draw a synagogue, an apartment building,
the prime minister's home, the Israel Muse-
um. Then cut the shapes out and, if
you have time, get them laminated
(this will make your buildings last
much longer). You can keep your lit-
tle city in a bag and take it out to play
whenever you want.

Torah portion,
Deuteronomy 11:26-
16: 17, is Re'ey. The

With a little imagination and
some strong coffee, you can
make an Israeli cafe in your
own home.
One of the most popular
drinks in Israel is Turkish
coffee, made by boiling the
grounds with water. The re-
sult is a thick, strong drink
with soft grounds (called
bootz, mud) at the

ly served with a lot
of sugar — but never milk.
Another frequent addition
is hell, or cardamom, which
gives the coffee a rich, fra-
grant flavor and produces
an aroma anyone who has
ever visited Israel
will recognize.
