This is a place holder image for bridge blog posts without an image selected.

Cucumbers are a staple of many Israeli salads, offering a refreshing taste that’s perfect for summer. Here’s another way to use this Middle Eastern standard – and, as a bonus, it’s super simple to make! 


  • 1 pound cucumbers, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3 scallions, white and pale green part, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½-1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • A few dashes pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)


Blend, taste, correct seasoning if necessary, and serve.

Makes about 4 cups.

Passover a Sacred Time to Save Lives

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
