Meet our friend Dr. Naomi Weiss.

Born in Belgium and raised in Ohio, Naomi made Aliyah when she was 18. Now living in Shaked, Israel, a yishuv located in the lush forest landscape of northern Samaria, Naomi discovered a passion and talent for baking after her challah became a much-beloved feature of the communal Shabbat meals she attended in her youth. Mentored by a fellow Oleh and master baker in the Judean mountains of Gush Etzion, Naomi's commitment to traditional Dutch oven baking makes her old-fashioned Sourdough bread, cookies, scones, and cream cheese are the best you've had since bubbe's house. Our baked goods and cream cheese from Shaked are available through The Yishuv Kitchen subscription. 



Certified Kosher (certification link coming soon) members of The Yishuv can trust they are receiving the highest quality baked goods and cream cheese, at the best available price, every time. Members enjoy free monthly delivery directly to their doorstep and a percentage of the proceeds from every subscription funds eco-friendly social impact projects in the communities our products are sourced from.
