Israeli type cottage cheese in Boston

My daughter loved Israeli cottage cheese when she was traveling earlier this fall. Can any Chowhound direct me to the closest equivalent in Boston?

    What's the difference? I've been to Israel a couple of times, but don't recall this. I'd love to know!

      When I lived in Israel, the cottage cheese there was simply delicious. The secret? 9% milkfat.

        whoa.....that's cottage CREAM cheese! ;)

        I guess whole milk cottage cheese (4%) would be closer than the usual lowfat that predominates.

      I have never had Israeli cottage cheese, but find that Friendship is very creamy and less "clumpy" that typical cottage cheese. It's the only kind of cc I can eat...for some reason I find most kinds repulsive, but the Friendship (in the blue container) is to die for and I crave it.
      you can buy it at Whole Foods and Shaws.

        Are you talking about G'vinah levanah.... white cheese

        They have it at Bucherie in Brookline. They cary a lot of different kinds of israeli cheeses.
