Montefiore’s Windmill

Bread Baking Festival at Montefoire’s Windmill

Bread Baking Festival at Montefoire’s Windmill

After 180 years, we return to the beautiful tradition of milling and baking bread at Montefoire’s windmill. 180 years ago, a person that wanted bread, came with a sack of wheat to the windmill in Mishkenot Sha’ananim and together with other Jerusalemites they would slowly turn the millstone together. Then they would sift the flour, and bake together in the communal tabun (which still exists at the gates of Mishkenot Sha’ananim). Then they would sit together and eat and enjoy fresh bread – and the sense of satisfaction of a significant, slow and joint effort!

This Friday, the eve of Shavuot, we return to this beautiful tradition on a one-time basis!

** Kids will also enjoy creative workshops booths!
