Do you have to buy 2/3 of the same, or any 2/3 items with the promotion for the bigger discount?

Anyone in Crown Heights buying? I WTB a 28" hardisde and interested in splitting an order (can go on your CC) Shipped to CH.

The Alim Litrufah this week had an earlier mekor than the Apte Rov.

Haven't seen the source, but apparently someone mentions this in the name of R' Pinchas of Koritz.

Up In The Air / Re: Cancelling ticket due to medical emergency

It depends on your fare code.

If it's a cheap fare it might be a deeply discounted fare that officially does not allow refunds, even for medical reasons (Turkish actually specifies that in the fare rules of certain fares). Having said that, they might be willing to change the ticket for a fee (and fare difference if applicable), especially if you call before the first flight on the itinerary.

At least here it was the non-jewish workers. I just heard about a case where the "mashgichim" were bringing in chometz. (I heard this secondhand, from my BIL who heard it directly from his friend who was one of these "mashgichim.")
In fact this "mashgiach" said that the people there were lucky if anything they ate was kosher at all, let alone KFP. The "mashgichim" were sitting around drinking whiskey and totally couldn't give a crap about anything that happened in the kitchen.

I'm not saying this is the norm but apparently it does happen...

That just sounds crazy.

At the end of the day if you want 100% guaranteed kosher you grow your own food and shect your own meat etc.     

Not the first time that equivalence was made in this thread. Chometz on Pesach is much stricter than most other issurim both in its shiur (mashehu) and in its bittul (not batel bshishim on Pesach).

Finally!
Some of the mashpiim are talking.
כמים קרים על נפש עייפה.
I appreciate the unapologetic responses

FTFY

Some of the most successful Shluchim from the 60s and 70s still can't give a proper sermon, but they speak from the heart and people listen. IMHO it's a good thing we don't have "educational experts" modeling our Shluchus prep ("Educational Institute Oholei Torah" is good enough :D )

You are only entitled to question me on statements that I make, not on what people imagine I might say.

But then he should ask JJ what he thinks you believe.

For someone who seems to have coined the term "Chumra"

Sounds harsh to me...

On another note, I have heard that some big rabonim that go to hotels as speakers bring their own food.

If not for the food, what draws them there? Do they get paid any significant $$ besides for their stay being covered?

@lubaby, so now Mashpiim have to start showing YouTube videos?...  ::)

Maybe MMS should become a Mashpia, he's good at drawing circles, lines and arrows too :D :D
