Any way to enforce it ?
Usually the free charging is enough of a incentive.

Service at the hotel is not too far from 5 star. No need to bring in staff from outside Israel.
Before the Ritz took Guy as the manager they had a mostly international staff and the best service in Israel that I've ever experienced.
I would say it was 5 star level although I don't have a objective scale so people may argue.
The WAJ was never on that level and certainly is not now.
Not to say that the service is bad it's excellent but I'm trying to nitpick and differentiate one top level service experience from the other.

Just Shmooze / Re: Why is our divorce rate rising drastically?

Without responding subjectively to any individual situation.
I think that there was once more social pressure to stay married then there currently is, which can potentially snowball this issue as many people who have perfectly happy marriages may have gotten divorced at some point earlier in the marriage when things were more difficult had there been no social pressure to keep going.
That's why it's rising in my opinion.
Not to say that this social pressure is an entirely good thing there are some very unhealthy marriages that aren't good for either  spouse or the kids that people stay in due to social pressures.

Would such vitamins need a hechsher?


It's Vegetarian not Veagan I'd be worried it contains some egg based product, in which case it would need a Hechsher.

Assumptions
Assume average room is ~500 sq feet multiplied by 227 = ~115k sq. ft.
Public areas (total guesstimate) = 85k sq. ft.

Luxury Apartments 2k sq. ft per apartment = ~60k sq. ft.
27 of 30 apartments sold for $1.25mm each = ~$35mm
I would guess the apartments sold 2-4x that, actually if anyone knows what they were going for I'm curious.

how is that ok?
That's the same thing that the King David charges, Mammila and Citadel don't have the prices posted online but I'd imagine they're similar.
It's common for high end hotels to price rollaway beds at rates like that.
Not that it's not absolutely ludicrous especially considering that very often Hotels of the same caliber even in the same city give them for free but it is common practice.

They have raised their non member prices in most markets to triple the price, once the promo ended. Flights now that are half hour going for $500+ a seat.
I think that's only on the XO Jet flights.
