Fodor's Review

Finnish Christians built this moshav, a kind of cooperative farm, outside Jerusalem with pine beams imported from home, lending a Scandinavian setting to the famously abundant Friday brunch of salads, cheeses, quiche, and fish (NIS 95 per person). The moshav is called Yad Hashmona, or "memorial to the eight," to atone for the Finnish government's turning over of eight Jewish fellow countrymen to the Nazis. Call ahead to reserve a space. At other times, this place is open for meals only by request. From Jerusalem, take Route 1 toward Tel Aviv, exit at Neve Ilan, and follow signs to Yad Hashmona.
