Seinfeld tel aviv show discount for 50 matmid points = 100NIS off Wasn't sure if this goes in this thread or the deals one.
This is great if you have points lying around without much use (and Matmid points don't have much use).
The show is Dec. 30th motzei Shabbos at 7pm and 10pm (shabbos is out ~5:25pm), if you are like me a seinfeld fan and have extra matamid points then come join!

Edit: Being a matmid member (or having the Elal flycard) also gives you an option to buy tickets early (now) before they are open to the general public.

Re: Amazing WYNDHAM targeted promotion
These timeshares scam is just that. And BTW everyone has these offers not just Wyndham.
How is it a scam? Do they not deliver on what they promised? No one is forcing you to do anything, I am surprised at the resistance of people to hear a 2 hour sales pitch, what could happen to a shrewd ddfer...also, how is this so different than fulfilling other signup requirements for various programs (spending/flying/staying etc.)?
Also where else can I get this kind of offer would love to know?

Re: Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem The article claims that it will not only stay Hilton but that the contract requires the buyer to begin construction of the pool and spa immediately.

Re: New Points Hotel Jerusalem: TRYP By WYNDHAM Hope this is the right place for a review of our 1 night stay at the hotel, didn't feel that it qualified as a TR just a quick getaway.

DW and I decided to take a short vacation for a day and we thought the central location of the hotel would be perfect. Booked 3k+$65 the executive room. We arrived at 4:45pm (check in from 3pm) we noticed the majority of the guests were Israeli not too many tourist maybe because of the time of the year. Check in took a few minutes as there was a line, when it was our turn I asked if I could get an upgrade to the Bat Sheva Suite, I explained that I wrote an email but did not receive a response. The receptionist seemed very nice and spent about 3 minutes clicking away, eventually she said there is one room which is not occupied but for some reason not open for occupancy, she said we could come later and possibly switch given the short nature of our stay we decided to skip that option. about 5pm we go to the room it was clean elegant and had a complimentary bottle of water + some choclates, it was definitely on the small side despite being the biggest room except the suite (according to website 20sqm). There was some issue with bolting the door so we called the desk to fix it, took quite a while for them to come.
The room was on a high floor (8/9) and we had a terrific view from the window (no balcony). As mentioned by @BrooklynCPA the bathroom does not allow for much privacy and the lighting situation is not good for shabbos, the shower was terrific with amazing pressure plus the amenities were very good dead sea products. One thing which we did is to go onto the roof to see the 'historic Jerusalem' view which truly is amazing better than anything I have seen at other hotels, you can see the old city and other directions a real panoramic view of the city, truthfully I would recommend simply going there even if you are not a guest, take the elevator to the 9th floor and you have a fantastic view. The TV is the ususall Israeli garbage with limited options, would recommend bringing your own stuff if you want to watch, you can always connect with an HDMI cable.
In the morning we went to breakfast, the first thing I did was ask to speak to mashgiach, the Arab waiter said he will check, I said is he around and he replied that he was supposed to be but he has a tendency of 'disappearing' (not a good sign IMO), he wasn't there. I spoke with the chef and clarified where the products were from (he was Jewish but did not seem frum). In terms of whether you should eat there ask your LOR I just present to you my experience.
The food was terrific with a great selection of cheeses and cooked items (haloumi skewers)no complaints here, a nice selection of breads etc.
An anecdote - at breakfast if you look at the wall outside there is a beautiful but rather risque quote from sefer shmuel the story of Bat Sheva I guess they took the name seriously...also alluding to the hotels view (in that Dovid Hamelech saw Bat Sheva bathing from his view), make what you want of that...
I am posting a link to my pictures so you can get a sense of what it looks like as well as some of the views (I was not successful in inserting the pictures into the review)

Re: Barreling down Niagara Falls on @Yehuda’s First Trip with a Baby! Great TR! Just a note to anyone travelling that way and looking for a nice place to stop. Ithaca NY houses Cornell university which has a kosher dining hall under the star-k and a minyan 3 times a day, it can be a good stopping point depending on your needs (this is during semester so check first). There are also some great falls on the area, Ithaca falls and buttermilk falls.
