Re: Which hotels have Two bedroom suites?
i hate opening new threads but i just couldnt find anywhere to post. im looking to go away with the family on points. were a group of 8 and obviously neeed more than a suiite but we did just fine in hyatt houses with the Trio rooms. they give you 2 full closed bedrooms plus a living room area with pull out sofa and full kitchen. they are extremely reasonable too. two regular adjoining rooms wont work for us since we need more room and also need the kitchen. my question is if other hotel brands have similar configurations like candlewood suites or Homewood or something like that. any input appreciated.
IME the 2 bedroom suites at Residence Inns, TownePlace Suites, StayBridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, Homewood Suites, Embassy Suites, Sonesta ES, etc, are not bookable with points. We have often been upgraded for free but only once was I able to get them to confirm the upgrade in advance. I must say, many of these two bedroom suites are bigger than my apartment....

Re: Public letter
If a non-religious Jew became religious would you accept him as you would someone that was religious from birth?
I would point out (also related to our other discussion re: discrimination) that I employ over 50 people as kosher supervisors/inspectors/Mashgichim. At least 1/3 we're not religious thier entire lives. 6 are female (just about every position is open to women). 2 are African American. 1 Hispanic. 2 Iranian. 3 Israeli. 2 converts. Etc. We have a pretty diverse crowd and gladly accept anyone who is a capable, practicing Orthodox Jew (per our Rabbinical Council standards).

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
out of town cities dont have shuls that are nearly as busy as lakewood shuls. and if they are as busy they generally have the mikva in a completely separate area which is not possible in a lakewood development
I give up. I guess just stick with qam appointments.
It can be done in a tznius manner with an entrance on the opposite side of the building. It might also help if people weren't so yentish

Re: Chabad Minhagim: Pros & Cons
Most recent occurrence I experienced was next to the Ohel on Erev RH. There was a captive audience there that was going to say Hatoras Nedorim, why not take the time to say the full shiur (including 3 extra Kaptilech) tehillim before starting the Hatoras Nedorim?
interesting anecdote: several years ago at a pesach hotel I noticed people running out of davening early. I wondered where they were running since breakfast was always fully stocked fir several hours. I mentioned this out loud to someone and he shared an interesting observation. He said he had been in prison for a period of time and noticed that there were people who left davening early. He couldn't fathom where they were running. After mentioning it to someone in prison he said it's basically based on habots developed when you had excuses for leaving early....

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread
The "Cranberry 100% juice" lists ingredients: https://www.oceanspray.com/en/Products/Juices-and-Drinks/By-Type/100-Percent-Juice/100-Percent-Juice-Cranberry

On page: "This 100% cranberry juice contains water, cranberry juice concentrate, grape juice, water, grape juice concentrate, apple juice, water, apple juice concentrate, and pear juice, water, pear juice concentrate."
and they would be correct. It is 100% juice. Not 100% Cranberry juice

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread

Presumably there are all sorts of kulahs used by various agencies on many products. Does that mean one needs to research every product? What about Bishul akum questions that come up on nearly every product? Wouldn't it make more sense to just exclusively use hechshers that conform to one's standards?
bishul alum doesn't come on nearly every product. Probably not even on 1/4 of certified products.
Also, many people on this board have asked specific questions regarding bishul akum. Grape juice is a known red flag ingredient with many known kulos (many of which I suspect would shock quite a few members on this board). Therefore it make sense for someone to ask questions regarding grape juice.

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread
On my EWR-TLV flight the FA seemed to know, and took amit back from me and gave me a sealed bag if nuts with a hechsher, that made me assume they know from experience that those who request kosher meals dont eat those.
But then again later on the same FA offered me the Chalav stam ice cream (I assume) after a chicken meal saying that he knows I can have it cuz I only ate chicken not beef....
he was probably from the galil.... :D

Re: Kosher Meals - Can we do better?
Seriously?? Oy another one bites the dust. Growing up thinking the OU was the #1 accepted hashgacha in the US, then finding out reality as an adult. Now you're telling me the OK is not almost-nationally accepted?
you have a lot to learn.....
