Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem
I wouldnt look for a *W Hotel in Jeru for yrs or decades to come. Hyatt,Hilton,Marriott,Best Western, Days Inn,HoJo, are all part of the past as well
Arent they putting up a Waldorf Astoria down the block from the former Sheraton Plaza in J-M? Is there any info out there regarding if they will be participating in the HHonors program and accepting award reservations?

Re: Dans Deals Employment Agency Thread
Oh wow that's bad. Thanks
I recently got a resume for a data entry position, and I will quote the line that explained her experience "writing copy" for an ecommerce company;
"I proof red all the copy etc..."

Re: New trend - Instant approval life insurance Just an update with my experience with Haven Life. I didnt use them for myself (as i already have a policy) I was helping a family member who is close to 60 get a term policy. They did need the medical exam done, but in the end approved a 15yr $250k policy with premiums lower than any other quote I got. (Around $300 less per year on average).

Thanks to the OP, as this was the push needed to finally get the coverage needed.

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants I just got an invite earlier this week to my company's Holiday party to take place at the Prime Bentley in December (we did it there the last 2 years). I wonder if they will still do events or if we need to find a new location.
I sent a note to the planners.

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants
Definitely find a new place , prime is gone
Confirmed, party cancelled- working on a new venue... Surprising that they took our reservation and deposit last week.

Re: {DEAD} Run! Toys R Us Stackable Promos!!
Any major corporations there?
To be fair, a lot of the email addresses are "" and the like, as opposed to direct email contacts, but there are plenty of those as well.

Re: Trump-Republican tax plan bad for large families There is another great strategy if you want to fund a DAF. You are allowed to donate stocks, and the donation is valued at the current market rate. This actually results in a double benefit because you dont pay any cap gains that you may have had.
For example, say you bought $5k AAPL a year ago and it is now worth $10k, when you fund the DAF with these shares you save on the $5k cap gains, on top of the $10k charity deduction you are getting. A variation of this strategy would be, even if you wanted to retain your AAPL position, you can essentially donate the shares, purchase new shares at the same time to replace them and now your position has a new higher cost basis, for your eventual sale thereby saving you on future cap gains.
I am thinking of doing this with any stock position that I currently have high percentage gains, in order to reset the cost basis and maximize the charity deduction at the same time.
I contacted The Donors Fund and they confirmed they can accept stocks as long as they arent penny stocks or unlisted stocks, but prefer it to be valued at least $10k but may be negotiable.

Re: Trump-Republican tax plan bad for large families Sorry I forgot to point out one important point, the below would only work with long term cap gains and not for short term cap gains (stocks must have been purchased prior to 2017).

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants The 34th St battle of "how many restaurants can you shove into one location" escalates ...

Paprika, added "Chicken & Kone" ( ) which is a waffle cone with crispy chicken and a sauce topping of your choice. I spoke to the manager and they also have "Pitaland" coming which will be a fast food menu at a lower price point like Chicken burgers etc.
So they now have 4 menu's including Toastie.

Kosher in Midtown (aka Eden Wok) across the street has 6;
1)   Eden Wok
2)   Koshe Poke
3)   Pitopia
4)   Sushi Donut
5)   Teryaki Wok
6)   Buffalo2go

Mendy's is 2, including "Bedford on Park".

In other news "Basta", also opened up on that block- 34th between Madison and Park.

Re: Vital Card
It's a shame, I don't want Twitter and the texts were driving me crazy so I loved the idea of a telegram channel. Any chance you can create your own with another username?
don't I get an HT?  :-)
Thanks @Dan for creating the official telegram channel
