Fresh yeast to instant yeast conversion

r

I have translated a pastry recipe from an Israeli cookbook and I don't think I should have any issues converting from grams to English measurements. However, based on the yeast to flour ratio in the recipe I am assuming they mean fresh yeast.

Since all I have are packets of SAF and I'm not about to go buy the fresh stuff, does anyone know what the conversion of grams of fresh yeast to grams (or tablespoons) of dry yeast would be, or where I could find this out?
