Discounted Glasses - Back by Popular Demand!


It's back! Here's your chance to get a really affordable eye exam and glasses if you missed it last week!


This Thursday, Jan 19, 201,7 you have another chance to get subsidized eye exams and glasses in Karmiel. You'll be able to get a pair of glasses - frames + lenses for just 100 shekels! There is an option to have this fee waived in case of need. I am happy to share information about waiving the fee, please just send me an email (ester@kosherfrugal.com) asking for more info!

The event will take place at The Pitchon Lev Center, at HaLevona Street #1 in Karmiel.
(According to some maps, the street is called Levona Street, so try both ways if you have trouble finding it)

Eye exams are available from 12noon - 4pm

Hope this helps some of you out there! There's been a lot of discussion about the cost of glasses lately. Your savings will certainly be more than the cost of your transportation to Karmiel and home!

I'm sure there will be similar programs in other towns - please let me know if you know of any!

Olive Oil Issues - Fakes in the Marketplace

The Ministry of Health runs random checks on olive oil in the marketplace, to assure compliance with health and labeling standards.

The following oils, marked as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, were tested and found to have significant deviations from the standard, and are most likely not pure olive oil (most likely another oil has been mixed in with the olive oil):

1. "Mary" brand 4 liter can. Marked Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced in Tzur Yigael. The sample tested had expiration date 7.12.17


2. Shemen Zayit HaGalil, 1liter bottles, produced in Kidmat Galil. The sample tested had expiration date 8/2017

3. Shaarei Yerushalayim "Extra Virgin Olive Oil", had multiple issues, including a forged, outdated seal. The sample was found at "Maadanei Achim Eliyahu" at Shuk Machaneh Yehudah in Jerusalem


4. "Umanut Hashemen" (The Art of Oil) "Extra Virgin Olive Oil", 4L bottle, produced in Kidmat Galil

5. An unmarked bottle of oil being sold at "Roshdi, Druze Food" at Sarona Market in Tel Aviv. It was represented as Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
