Re: Dental and Vision Insurance and Plans
i am looking for info on dental insurance .. do someone know a good insurance for advanced dental work ?

Fidelity Health (not to be confused with Fidelis medical insurance) - This is a great dental plan, do your research pricewise - have this for a while now & covers lots more than other plans (approx. half the cost or less - paying $850 now for Root Canal instead of $1800), paying $220/yr. for couple, excellent choice of dentists. Agent is a Mr. Shraga E. Klein who has the patience of a saint & answers all questions, follows up if dentist was able to accommodate in timely manner & follows up with office on your behalf, etc would highly recommend. Contact # (718) 871-2882 / (845) 783-4537. I may be mistaken but it's possible it's for the tri-state / upstate NY area only.

Alternatively, this isn't too bad either:

Good luck.

Re: מי כעמך ישראל - Post your stories here What about all the people overseeing the food distributions at local schools?? These people are volunteers afaik, who have their own lives & own pre-pesach situation, and are spending hours prepping sandwiches, manning the crowds, and organizing food for our families.

No words. These are the people that are bringing Moshiach.

Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread - COVID-19 related
Every one  of the tens of thousands of individuals in Lakewood who found a shoulder to cry on, advice for legal trouble, help for parnassa issues- both with eitzos and with money, solutions to countless Halacha and practical issues that affected the Tzibur, and on and on, should be crying now with the petira of Rav Zeev Rothchild Zecher Tzaddik Livracha. So much of Lakewood stood on his shoulders. There was so much that wasn’t even known. There is no one who can replace him. A book can be written about his incredible works. Yehi Zichro Boruch.

So touched, have to share.

Was speaking with a close relative tonight & mentioned R' Zeev's petirah, she said "do you remember when shortly after I was married I worked at a supermarket? That was that tzaddik!" She was referring to the time when soon after she was married and moved to Lkwd close to 20 yrs ago, her husband, who knows nothing beyond his gemara, as a new driver totaled the car of someone who'd driven in from Canada to return a car whose lease was up the next day (just to give you an idea, he's completed the Dirshu dayanus program twice but won't officially become a dayan bec. then the learning is not l'ishmah... this wasn't some hot-headed youngster looking to get his hands on the wheel). So as a young woman she walked into R' Zeev's supermarket, and asked if she could possibly be hired as a cashier in the evenings (after a full-time day job) since she needed to cover the car's damages. She was handed $1,400 on the spot & worked there approx. 6 weeks until she paid off her debt. This, to a. complete. stranger.

I'm just floored. She said, "you have no idea how many such stories there are, of little people/complete strangers whom he helped that we don't know about!"

I can't stop thinking that as a nation we must really have messed up big to be in the situation we are right now. Otherwise, with people such as R' Zeev, how is it that we are still in golus??

May we merit the Geulah b'korov & gezunterheit!

Re: Dan's Deals Magazine?
It may be similar, but this one won't have articles copied from wikipedia. Or screenshots of movies.

@justmeha as well,

Not sure what's up with the cynicism, I for one appreciate the extensive effort of others that results in a kosher end product for my offspring to enjoy.

Re: Couples Stuck in USA - Rent on Israeli Apartments
I am trying to figure out how a Roov would tell them they are allowed to store their items in someone else's property for free and that they have a halachic right to both not pay rent and still prevent the landlord from renting the property to someone else.

+ 1,000

Can't believe how the majority here are at the OP's throat, challenging him with regard to law & halachah, practically implying that he's the one wronging the tenants, & if he deals with this clientele he should suck it up. 

Fact is, these tenants are taking advantage of him, regardless which "class" they're part of.  Seems like most posters here are fine looking away at that, but when it comes to the landlord the law & halacha are quickly invoked.

FWIW, I'm a tenant, & I'd never dream of doing something like this. And no, I don't have the perfect landlord, far from it.  Still, my sense of menchlichkeit & decency dictate my actions, not "well the landlord deserves xxxx".

Stealing is stealing, regardless who the tenant is or whether the landlord has it coming to him. Period.

Re: Couples Stuck in USA - Rent on Israeli Apartments
Noone here condoned the behavior of the tenants.

The OP was criticized for
1) his attitude
2) painting all young couples in e"y in a negative light based on his dealing with a narrow segment of that group
3) alternately stating he is following halacha and law while at the same time stating he is doing things that are against law and halacha

I hope the OP can resolve this in a satisfactory manor within the guidelines of the halacha and the law.

Gotcha. Although I still maintain that the majority here judged the landlord unfairly (but understandably given your clarification), your final sentence is the bottom line.

Re: COL video about Maimonidies, a must watch
it was needed, the criteria to get PT's on it was slim they weren't accepting PT's easily. IMHO the ship was there for show that the federal government "cares" but that's a different rabbit hole to go down.

I find this horrifying  :(

Re: Life Hacks, Post Your Favorites! - For knobs that keep un-screwing (i.e. bathroom vanity knobs), brush a bit of clear nail polish onto screw before tightening - should stay rock-solid.

- To vacuum dust in places where you want to avoid sucking excess things into the vacuum cleaner (like delicate faux plant leaves, or decor with detail on it), fasten a sheer knee-hi over nozzle with a rubber band, and voila! Vacuum without 'consuming' anything.

- When frying shnitzel, or anything else for that matter, add a sliver of carrot to the frying pan - it keeps the oil from overheating and thus the food from getting burnt.
