Series: Financial Assistance in Israel (Part 3)

If you haven't yet seen the other parts of this series, please be sure to check out Part 1 and Part 2.

Today I'm writing about Rental Assistance.


There are a number of criteria - and they are somewhat complicated - for eligibility. The only way to find out for sure if you are eligible is to check with one of the companies that works with the Ministry of Construction and Housing to determine eligibility. There may be a small fee to use their services, please be sure to ask when you schedule an appointment.

Some of the people who may qualify are (I am basing this off information obtained from the Ministry of Construction and Housing's website):

Elderly people whose only income is ‘Old Age Allowance’ and ‘Income Supplement’
Disabled people whose income is based upon on a 75% or more ‘Unfit for Employment’ Allowance – the level of assistance is determined by family composition: singles, couples, couples with children, or single parent families.
Disabled Holocaust Survivors with 49% disability and "damage Level" 1, 2, or 3
Disabled individuals who live on ‘Subsistence Allowances’ and have reached the status of ‘pensioners’.
Individuals who meet eligibility criteria and who receive ‘Child Support’ from NII.
Singles age 55+, couples, couples with children, common-law or single parent families whose income depends upon an ‘Assured Income Allowance’ (Havtachat Hachnasa) and began receiving assistance from June 2002 onwards. The level of assistance is determined according to both family composition and the type of benefits: normal/expanded, special or disability benefits.

Assistance Based Upon Income:

Families without Children:

Qualifying Income is between 4505 and 5631 shekels/month (Gross Income)

Families with Children:

Couple + child: Qualifying income is between 4954 and 6192 shekels per month (Gross)

Couple + two children or more: Qualifying income is between 6059 and 7574 shekels per month (Gross)

Single-parent family: Qualifying income is between 6284 and 7855 shekels per month (Gross)

The process of applying for assistance may not be easy, but if you have low income as listed above, it is worth it to go to one of the companies that helps with this (Amidar, Milgam, and Madar) and apply.

*Olim also receive an automatic rental subsidy as part of the Absorption Basket, but in some cases, they can receive additional income-based assistance.
If you know someone who will be helped by this article, please forward it to them!

Tofu with Date Honey & Ginger Sauce

For Shabbat, I made Chicken in Date Honey & Ginger Sauce. My family really likes this recipe, and it's become my new go-to Shabbat Chicken recipe.

And since I have one vegetarian child, I decided to see how he would like Tofu with Date Honey & Ginger Sauce... (You can do this with chicken cut into small pieces, too, if you're so inclined)

(Note: Date Honey (Silan), even the all natural, no sugar added kind, is MUCH less expensive than Bee's Honey! It has a different flavor, so I don't use them interchangeably, but it's a great option when you are looking to sweeten a recipe without straight sugar.)


Recipe:

1 block of tofu (about 300g), cut into strips
1 "splash" of olive oil for the pan
3 Tablespoons Date Honey (also called Silan)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
ginger (I used dried ground ginger because that's what I had on hand, you can use fresh grated ginger instead if you prefer) to taste
garlic and ground pepper to taste

First, saute the tofu lightly in olive oil.
Add all the other ingredients to your pan and stir while cooking over high heat. 
It's done within a couple of minutes.

Serves 3, at least.



Got a thumb's up from the veggie son!

Enjoy!


All this for 11 Shekels!


I'm posting about my latest sug bet haul. Yesterday I happened to be near the makolet at the very end of the day, and found they'd put out a fair amount of produce on the "sug bet" - 2 shekel/kilo - rack.

Some of it was rotten. Gross.

But some was really great! And since I'm really not planning to spend much on groceries this week, this was perfect for me! (Except that I didn't have any shopping bags/tote bags with me, because I actually had not planned on shopping... So I had to take a plastic bag, and just my luck, it ripped on the way home...)

Anyway, here's what I got for 11 shekels!

4 kohlrabi
1 (small) butternut squash
10 (small-medium) sweet potatoes
2 large red peppers
1 small red pepper
2 (normal size) green peppers
2 (normal size) yellow peppers 
19 (smallish) kishuim (light green summer squash)

Most of these veggies are in good condition, and I'm not sure why they were set outside, but I was thrilled to find them anyway!

They had other things out there that did not appeal to me as much - like those famous root vegetables - because if I could get THESE for 2 shekels/kilo instead of those, my family is much happier. Not that we don't eat the root vegetables too, because we do. But I decided to skip it for now, in favor of these. Especially without any tote bags...

What's your find of the day? Please let me know!

Now I need to decide what I'm cooking with these...

Weekly Menu Planning

Once again, I sit here planning my menu. Not because I want to cook in advance... it's because this cuts down on impulse spending and last minute scrambling for food, which often turns into an expensive endeavor. 

I've got to feed a family of six, including two teenage boys, every meal, every day of the week (plus random guests and friends). Some of you have bigger households, and some have smaller households, but for any household looking to reduce expenses, I believe having a plan makes a HUGE difference and can really help everyone spend a little (or a lot) less.

This week is a minimal grocery shoping week for me, as I want to make room in the freezer and I realized there are too many random odds and ends piling up in there.

So this is a mostly pantry challenge type menu! I'm planning suppers, but of course we'll eat breakfast - probably oatmeal/muffins/branflakes/fruit and lunches will be sandwiches or leftovers from other days' suppers.


Sunday - Pasta Two Ways (wheat free pasta with tons of sauteed veggies, and traditional baked ziti for those who eat wheat and dairy), salad

Monday - Shabbat leftovers embellished with freezer findings

Tuesday - Smorgasbord of freezer findings

Wednesday - Soup using freezer findings, tuna and seaweed patties (chick pea fritters for the ones who won't eat fish), baked potatoes (I've had a bag of seaweed sitting here for a while, time to use it!)

Thursday - leftovers from the week or more pasta and veggies

Do you menu plan? I'd love to hear your thoughts about this tactic!

Sippy Cup Recall


 
Massive sippy cup recall - involving all "Tommy Tippee" Sippy Cups with a removable WHITE valve. The valve can develop a mold problem, especially when washed infrequently.




You can read about the recall in English HERE on the CPSC website.

In Israel, the importer has agreed to exchange the valves for anyone who has these cups, no matter if they were purchased in Israel or abroad (many were purchased abroad).

Please get in touch with the importer - "The Little Prince" on Facebook to make arrangements for your replacements. If you don't have Facebook, please use their "Contact Us" page on their website.

For Mothers of Infants - Freebies and Coupons

If you have an infant at home, you know that things can be overwhelming at times, AND expensive on top of that.

So here are a few ways to get a few freebies and coupons, because every little bit counts.

 I am including links to coupons for formula, not because I am pushing formula, but rather because I know that the reality is that some mothers need to use formula.

Huggies sample pack and coupons

Materna coupons   (sign up to get their emails with coupons/deals by filling out the form at the bottom of the page that looks like this:
)


For first time mothers (first birth) - sign up for "First Steps" - they will send a representative to your house (not to every town/yishuv, though, but I don't have a list of exclusions) with sample products!

"Babysitter" brand diaper coupon

Similac Samples - call 1-800-65-65-01 to request

Superpharm offers a new-mother special. Pay 12.90 for a box full of supplies worth far more. You can only take advantage of this once during the 3 months immediately after your baby's birth. Sign up on their website and then bring the coupon they will email you to a Superpharm store, along with your baby's birth certificate and your teudat zehut to purchase.

New-Pharm has a similar deal, but you need to go into the store to request it. Bring your paperwork and expect to pay about 10 shekels.

Mustela cream sample (choose for baby OR for mom)

Moraz (natural products) coupons

Nutrilon formula coupons

KidsCare - coupons for products

Dr. Fischer coupons (you'll need to like their Faebook page)

Tiptipot free sample + coupons

If you know of more coupons/clubs/freebies, please let me know! I'll update this page as I hear of more!

Not sure if shopping at iHerb makes sense?

I shop there pretty often, as you may already know. I find it makes life easier for me - not only do they make it easy to find some "hard to find" products my family needs (like fragrance free shower products), but I save a significant amount of money on things like vitamins and probiotics. They are definitely less expensive at iHerb than my local stores, and shipping is VERY affordable (currently $4 for up to 4 lbs, if you choose economy shipping).

Here are some of the things I like to buy at iHerb:

--- Retrieved from http://www.kosherfrugal.com/search?updated-max=2016-05-23T14:50:00%2B03:00&max-results=4 ---
 

Palm Oil (this eco-friendly version is not available in Israel at all, and is perfect for making frosting or fudge)

Magnesium Tablets (these and many other supplements are quite pricey in Israel and iHerb is a great way to save!)

Stash Teas (I buy these when they are on sale, as the sale price comes out to less than the lowest price I can find herbal teas for locally, and these are just SO MUCH HIGHER quality!)

Vitamin D Tablets (so many people are deficient, it turns out! And my doctor prescribed a rather high dose, and what's sold here is very low dose and more expensive)

Probiotics are far less expensive from iHerb, and they don't weigh much

EO shower gel (we like this kid friendly all-in-one shower product that doesn't irritate our skin!)

Ricola throat drops (these work out to be only slightly less expensive than the local price, so I use them as a "filler" product, never as my "reason for buying")

Stain Remover (this Ecover product is GREAT, and iHerb's price is slightly lower than I can get it for locally when there's a sale, but again, I just use it as a "filler product" when I'm ordering other things and there's space left in the order)

Witch Hazel (it's really not easy to find witch hazel products locally, and if you love witch hazel, you'll be thrilled with iherb's price. This one is a toner with alcohol in it - great for teens' skin issues - but they also have plenty of no-alcohol witch hazel products)

Coffee Filters (unbleached)

Brown Rice Pasta (only when they're on sale, great for people who don't eat wheat! The local equivalent is more expensive unless there's an amazing sale)

Grapefruit Seed Extract (similar product, 1/4 of the size, cost more than twice as much at my health food store, and so many people are convinced this keeps colds away!)

Essential Oils (I use them in homemade cleaners)

Soy-free Teriyaki Sauce (for my soy allergic child)

Calendula Cream (so soothing and wonderful for eczema!)

I also regularly check the Specials Page to see if products I use are on sale and work out to a better deal thru iHerb during a sale, and I also occasionally will order a hard-to-find spice.

If you haven't ordered from iHerb, now is the perfect time to check it out!
And please let me know what your favorite deals are!

Shabbat Menu

I'm home, cooking for Shabbat again! And looking forward to a day of rest, food, Torah, and family time (with no SCREENS)!

So here's the plan:




Friday night

Whole Spelt and Oat Bran Challot (freshly made, they are rising as I type this!) 
Vegetable Soup
Spicy Roast Chicken
Potato Kugel
Apple Crisp
Roasted Kohlrabi
Roasted Root Vegetables
Lettuce salad the cherry tomatoes and red peppers

Shabbat lunch

Whole Spelt and Oat Bran Challot
Spicy Roast Chicken
Black Bean Cholent with Vegan Kishke
Potato Kugel
Apple Crisp
Roasted Kohlrabi
Roasted Root Vegetables
Cherry Tomatoes with Basil and Olive oil
Some other Salads
Chocolate Chip Squares (wheat-free, vegan) for dessert

Seudah Shlishit

Challah Rolls
Egg Salad
Chumus
Carrot and Cucumber Sticks
etc

What's your plan for this Shabbat? Do you make everything from scratch, too?

Roasted Root Vegetables with Date Honey & Balsamic Vinegar

Ok, I will admit it.

I sometimes (often, perhaps), buy vegetables that my family doesn't like.
Particularly root vegetables - turnips and radishes are very often available for 1-2 shekels/kilo,and are also often on the "sug bet" rack. But they're hardy, and even the ones that are "sug bet" are totally fine inside, even if the outside is not the prettiest:



But despite being so affordable and the fact that they are storable for a long time, my family doesn't really like radishes, turnips, and the like. So I HAD to find a way to make them tastier. I often put them in soup, and I like them that way, but some people in my family will poke and prod at them and eat around them...

Today I decided to roast them. I've done it before, and they're ok roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper, but not delish.

This time, I chopped up a bunch of turnips, radishes, carrots that needed to be cooked, onion, and garlic.

I tossed them with olive oil, a large dollop of date honey, balsamic vinegar, some salt, and some crushed black pepper. And put it in the oven to roast at about 220 C.

It started to smell really good, and when it came out, I snuck a few tastes and decided THIS is what I'm doing with those root veggies from now on!

Food Recall! (Israel)

Hatikvah Smoked Fish announced a major recall, due to the presence of listeria in some of their products (particularly Herring (מטיאס) fillets in oil and Herring Provencal, in 300g packages with expiration dates of 30.6.16 and 11.7.16).

In order to assure public safety, the company is recalling ALL packages of Herring Provencale and Herring Fillets in oil that are currently on stores shelves, with all expiration dates through 12.7.16

This includes those packaged under the "DeliDag" brand and "Hatikvah Smoked Fish" brand.

Consumers are asked NOT to eat these products. Please return them to the store where purchased for a refund/store credit.

Vegan Kishke


This kishke recipe was inspired by a facebook post by my friend Devra. I don't remember her recipe anymore, but she posted about making some vegetarian kishke for her cholent. I decided it needed to be healthified, and needed some garlic too, and after a few different attempts, my family decided this one worked well!

So here's my recipe for Vegan Kishke (not only vegan, but also nut-free and can be made wheat free - that's how I do it) - you'll stop buying store bought kishke once you see how easy it is!



1 onion
10 garlic cloves
6 carrots 
1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 cup oat bran or wheat bran
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
small amount of water, if needed 
Place onion, garlic, and carrots in food processor (fitted with the bottom blade) and pulse till chopped.
Add the rest of the ingredients and process for a few minutes until well combined, adding water if needed to get a smooth consistency.

Spoon 1/3 of the mixture onto a piece of aluminum foil and wrap tightly. Repeat until you've wrapped 3 kishke  packages, using up all the mixture. 

Place in freezer, and keep frozen until you're ready to use it.

To cook, add the frozen (do not defrost) kishke to your cholent pot right before Shabbat starts (I made a vegan cholent - find the recipe here). It will cook and be perfect by the time you serve your cholent for kiddush or lunch! I use one per week, unless we have a lot of guests. If you eat a lot of kishke, you'll want more than one, I assume.

Enjoy! Let me know if you try it out!

Free Museum Day - May 26/Lag Ba'Omer



Lag Ba'Omer, May 26, 2016, is International Museum Day in Israel, and there are over 60 museums around Israel open to the public for free!

Many museums on this list are usually quite pricey for a family to visit, but I will warn you now - get there early or risk having the doors closed due to overcrowding!

*I have tried to list phone numbers and opening hours as accurately as possible. However, I cannot take responsibility for any errors, so please call the museums you plan to visit to verify this information before you go.

I have tried, wherever possible, to link to websites in English. There were some museums/historical sites that only had Hebrew websites, though. My apologies in advance.

The list below represents many hours of work translating and researching, and I request that if you want to share this information, you link to this blog post. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
