Re: joke for sheva brachot i dont understand what you are referring to, but i was talking about calling the kallah a melech when the word melech is inherently male.

Re: Is this story true?
I really feel bad to bring this up but I feel it's necessary being that I'm related to a young bochur who died of hunger in a Lubavitch yeshiva during WW2 which was right next to one of Aharon Kotler's yeshivas which at the time had a surplus of food. However the yeshiva was instructed by Aharon Kotler not to provide any food to the starving Lubavitch bochurim in the neighboring yeshiva. In fact some of the bochurim in Aharon Kotler's yeshiva took pity and broke the rules by sneaking a bag of rice to the Lubavitch bochurim. Several Lubavitch bochurim died of hunger when the supply stopped.

Another story: My great aunt worked in Aharon Kotler's office and they received a desperate plea from R. Weismandel in Slovokia who had bribed nazi officials to release thousands of Jews. At one point he secured a deal with Eichman to release many of the Hungarian Jews in the camps in late 1944 for an unknown sum of money. The request begged Aharon Kotler to help raise the funds needed to secure their release. His response was "NO" but he went on to print an updated version of "Shita Mekubetzes" (priorities?)

This story was documented a book called "The Unheeded Cry"

Needless to say I have a hard time believing the above mentioned  story...

the story is obviously not true, since aharon kotler is not nearly that old, unless youre referring to his grandfather Rav Aharon Kotler in which case all i can say is shame on you mechutzef.

Re: Menorah lighting in Hotels
Has anyone had any experience with this? I'll be out of town for part of chanukah and staying at a hotel. Has anyone had any experience with a lit menorah in their hotel room? That is, were there any problems with the smoke detector going off, or the fact that it was a non-smoking hotel.

Re: “Light” Trip to Vienna & Prague
At the SR Kauai I just wanted a darn ice machine, not having to call and tip for a bucket of Ice :P
i find the best way to avoid giving a tip is to be in the bathroom when he knocks and my wife answer the door. i generally only tip the guys that help with my luggage

Re: “Light” Trip to Vienna & Prague Thursday morning we took a taxi to the Prague Castle, the biggest ancient castle in the world according to Guinness World Records. We opted to buy tickets for the “short visit” which included entry to the following locations: St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, St. George's Basilica, Golden Lane. As you can see, 2 of the 4 locations are churches which I don’t enter. The audioguide was also extremely expensive so I figured I’d make do with the signposts. In the end that was a mistake as I didn’t get the proper experience at the Old Royal Palace.

There is a changing of the guard on the hour, but the one at 12 noon has the full fanfare and flag ceremony which I attended. Some might say it’s a bit too drawn out.

Re: “Light” Trip to Vienna & Prague After the changing of the guard, we went to the Golden Lane, included on the ticket. The Golden Lane is a 15th century street with quaint little houses that at one time housed the sharpshooters of the palace. Today, they house reproductions of the old world style of living as well as the very interesting medieval armory displaying suits of armor and weaponry throughout the ages.
