Israeli Beaches in the Winter

What do you do in Israel on a nice sunny winter's day?

You go to the beach of course!
The water may be too cold to swim in. (Except for a few brave souls whom I suspect of being former Russian immigrants :))And the lifeguards' huts are all boarded up.No umbrellas cover the beach cheek by jowl.And the smell of coconut suntan lotion is absent...

Safta Yocheved's Bageles (Granny Yocheved's small bagels)

It may not come as a surprise to you that we eat a lot of bagels here in Israel.

Jewish communities from Poland brought them to Israel, just as they brought bagels to the States, Canada and England. And from there the bagel basically conquered the world. The astronaut Greg Chamitoff even took a few bagels with him abroad the space shuttle Discovery.
