Because these matzahs are more fragile than regular ones, they absorb liquid much faster. Therefore, Sheri suggests soaking them only breifly.

2 eggs

1 sheet oat matzah

1-2 tablespoons butter, for pan

Ground flax seed (flaxmeal), for sprinkling, as desired

Ground cinnamon, for sprinkling, as desired

Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Break up 1 sheet of matzah into 2-inch pieces and add to the eggs. Immediately melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.  When butter is melted, pour egg-matzah mixture into pan, making sure that the matzah pieces are evenly distributed.  

Let mixture set, and then flip it whole, just like a pancake. Continue to sauté on the other side just until the Matzah Brei is cooked through.  

Turn out onto a plate and sprinkle with ground flax and cinnamon.  

Makes 1 serving.

From mourning to celebration

This past week in Israel was incredible. Almost as soon as we arrived back in Israel, it was Yom Hashoa, Holocaust Remembrance Day. My school had a program in the evening, we lit candles and read stories of survivors. The next day started off at 10 am with a siren throughout the whole country. The siren brings the country to a halt as the whole country stops their cars, and stands in silence to remember those that perished in the Holocaust. After that, we went on a tour of Har Hertzl. Har Hertzl is Israel's main military cemetery. It is located on the northern slope of Mt. Herzl. It was established in 1948 when soldiers who fell in the Jerusalem area were buried here. In 1949, the government decided to turn the site into the main cemetery for IDF members who have fallen in the line of duty. We heard many stories about individual soldiers who were buried there.
