One of the ideologies of the people that live on Itamar is going green. The Zimmerman family has been farmers on Itamar almost since the founding of the community way back in 1984. Their dream is to turn their farm into a complete self- sufficient eco system. They are experimenting with permaculture and hydroponics and the production of methane gas using cow’s waste. Enjoy the first movie of a series of movies that we will be showing on their attempts to incorporate this into a successful system.
Enjoy the answers to last week’s Chidon on Chanukah.
Enjoy Rabbi Moshe’s torah about Mikeitz and how it connects to Zachariah chapters 2, 3, and 4, which is the Haftarah of this week’s portion.
