Not if it happened before pesach

if it's a worker eating a sandwich before Pesach during a pre-Pesach-run vs. a non-Pesach regular run, then it's definitely a lot more serious from a Kashrus standpoint. Therefore I believe that a Mashgiach temidi is needed from most KFP packing runs and not as many cold-Pareve packing runs.

Why does KFP need tmidi more that all year? Some products may need it for practical purposes but soda may not be one of them

there are many reasons why these circumstances are different from a Kashrus policy standpoint. One main Halachic reason for this is because all year, the items can be "batul b'shishim" and the products may still be kosher. For Pesach, even a mashehu is chometz.

Kosher L'Pesach run.

yes. That is definitely an issue if it was a KFP run, especially in a non-certified-Kosher plant. Some Mashgichim are paid $500-$600+ per day specifically to be there at the start of the run and to visually supervise all components. (This is why many KFP product cost more than similar year-round products.)


Maybe I didn't explain what happened fully. This mashkiach was supposed to open up the place for the goyim and turn on the machines. The goyim had the keys to the place to come in whenever they please and turned on the machines.

was this for a Pesach run (tmidi needed) or for a regular Kosher run? i.e. Coca Cola and most national year-round cold and all-parve locations don't have mashgichei t'midim in an all-kosher facility, just regular checks, access and yotzei v'nichnas at any time of day or night.

Up In The Air / Re: Unofficial airline weight limits

I'm curious to see how much overweight bags people can get away with by airline. Obviously a YMMV, but would be helpful to know.

Delta: 51 lbs and skycap didn't make me pay extra, though she did mark it as heavy.
El Al: 26 kgs no problem, 9 kg carry-on also no problem (I believe they officially don't give issues until 2 over)

a lot of these vary by the person, skycap individual, or airport and not necessarily by the airline as a whole in my experience.

thank you
they will deliver!

how kosher? taste? recommend anything?

They've had excellent food and desserts at several events that I attended; not sure of the entire line is available for take-out. They catered the White House Seder this year (Jewish staff and some Chabad attended Erev Pesach, no members of trump mishpacha), so they are definitely of high caliber, totally kosher, and enjoyed by many. Entree link:

I will be near dulles airport for 2 day meeting. ( next week) any shul nearby or kosher food?
i see fairfax as the closest shul- any ideas?

Both a caterer and large grocery store. I wonder if they deliver:

Made the mistake of davening one Shacharis with the non-Chabad minyan.

My luck, find out that y'all do Shir HaShirim on Shabbos Chol HaMoed  >:( ;)

shaare tefila in LA has the shabbos chol hamoed Shir Hashirim lained by a Chabad rabbi each year. (main shul - ashkenaz.)

Thank you for your response. While I'm definitely open-minded to moving to Chicago, it would be much easier to stay here in NY but I'm trying to remove that from the equation for now.

As a practicing attorney would you(or anyone else who might have an opinion) take the 150k at Northwestern vs 40k at Cls? I have been given conflicting advice on if Cls is worth 110k+ over NU and would love to get anymore insight if possible.

Here is a good piece that shows much better full-time employment rates for graduates of UC over NW:
however due to NW #10 ranking and your full scholarship, perhaps some experts would recommend graduating without that additional debt.

It's actually coming together nicely now that I spent some time on it today.
Back up to 132 slides now.

5 towns had 164 slides.

Sounds good. it's about quality and longevity, not quantity. B'hatzlacha.

Don't worry, not something I'd expect a CH'er to understand.

that's exactly why i didn't feel bad asking when the 2nd annual event is. (He said 10 Shvat, and I thought that he was going to say 3 tamuz.) Or lag B'Omer. "parade".
