Keren-Or Even-Danan
Keren-Or and her husband, Raphael, moved to Judea and Samaria in 1995. In 2000 they founded Havat Massuot Yitzchak where they live to this day.

Havat Massuot - New & Old
The farm is situated next to the community of Bat Ayin, between Hevron and Jerusalem. Massuot Yitzhak was the name of a kibbutz in Gush Etzion that fell in the War of Independence, and in 2000 the Even-Danan family established the Massuot Farm- "Havat Massuot"- that attracts groups coming to study the history of Gush Etzion.

"I have chosen recipes from my mother's home and from my mother-in-law's home– an amazing Israeli combination of an Ashkenazi kibbutznik and a Moroccan woman. I have completely altered both these recipes of course, and today they bear no resemblance at all to their originals – but therein lies our strength; to take the best from everything whilst adding to it our energy, our taste, and our family's love."
