Re: Problem with Elal and Baal teshuva whose father is Muslim...advice?
Crazy story
I do NOT mean to bash Elal. BH EY have had MANY attempted terrorist attempts thwarted.
and I Do not know how serious his allegations of stolen belongings is. See below- any advice? this is a student we purchased a ticket for to attend a baal teshuva yeshiva:

My moms family is all Jewish and my dad's dad is Muslim, from turkey and his mom from Canada. El al was not too happy about my having Muslim family in Turkey. Before I could even check in for my flight, I was held for nearly three hours as they asked any question you could think of regarding my Turkish family. I was one of the first people in line to check in and I was the dead last to get through. Because of my family history, I have gotten used to the extra questioning since this is my fifth time in Israel. It happens every time, but this time was so much worse. They then told me at check in that I had to take my computer out of my carry on and put in into my checked bag. They didnít make any other passengers do that and gave me no reason for it. Once I got through security is where the real problems started. After the hours of questioning, the director of el al security again pulled me aside and accused me of bringing a Muslim prayer rug into Israel, as if it was illegal. It was only my bath towel. Finally, as I am waiting in the line to board, xxxxx and I were asked to go into the side room next to the gate. They frisked both of us from head to toe and then completely picked apart both of our carry ons. They took out all of my electronics and told me that they had to put them in my checked bag. They gave me no reason. They also refused to let me take my sleeping pills into the plane, With no reason. Once in the plane, the director of security again approached me and told me that they had taken my hard drive and to give him an address in Israel to send it to. They did this without my permission and completely unofficially. I wrote my address on a scratch piece of paper that the director just shoved into his pocket. No official paperwork or anything like that. Once I got to Israel, I realized that the el al employees that had searched my checked bag (where I had packed my ďprayer rugĒ) I realized that they had also taken my deodorant, razor refills, my sunglasses and some really nice cologne that my parents had bought me for Hanukkah. I havenít received any emails or confirmation that they have my property and are sending it to me, so I am assuming that I will never see any of it again.
I am sorry for the long write up. I canít do it now, but Iím the morning I will send you what I sent to the travel agent just in case I left anything out. I feel that I was simply punished for having Muslim family despite the fact that I have been to Israel five times and even stayed for a year on a student visa. I hope that I can get compensated for my property and a refund for my flight home. It would be nice to talk to you and xxxxxxx on the phone soon, because aside from that everything is going great!
Twitter war with el Al....

Re: All Halocha Shailos and teiffa Questions
That's iruy kli rishon which can't kasher a kli rishon. Some say sinks are a kli rishon since pasta falls on it.
R' Shlomo Zalman says that iriui from a kli rishon while its on the fire boiling works in place of an even miluban

HOT!! 64oz Kedem Grape juice $0.88 (Star Market-Brookline, MA) All varieties. 25oz sparkling also same price (all varieties).
My .02:
3 categories of retailers:
1. Tries selling his pesach cakes on sale for $25.99 for shavuos since his distributor told him it's a holiday item.
2. The guy who finally gets it....marks all Passover items down by 90% on chol hamoed....even his meat and grape juice.
3. The seasoned Jewish retailers who just pack it and sell it next year for $25.99

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread
Saw this in another group. Does the below make sense? Product was under KVH:

Was in Costco today and noticed the taboule didnít have a kosher certification on it. I sent a message to the company via their Facebook page and this was their response:


We recently had to make a tough call which required the removal of our kosher  label. The truth is parsley can carry a small insect, aphids. Our parsley is machine washed with top of the line, industrial equipment 3 to 4 times. However, when the Rabbi inspects and finds 1 aphid all of the produce must be thrown out. Knowing how each piece of food must be carefully inspected, our company has much respect for the kosher process. However, if there is 1 aphid found on a parsley leaf we must throw away thousands of pounds of produce. We have now been in the dilemma to either keep up kosher standards, or to not waste the thousands of pounds of food. We have decided to continue our same high standards in the vegetable cleaning process as, but drop the kosher label for our taboule. We are thankful for our Kosher customers, and hope they can understand this decision. "
The gist is correct. Infestation fluctuated well beyond what we were comfortable with and the current wash system relied on human touch to much. There was talk about putting in a fully automated wash system but a apparently proved to difficult to meet the kosher spec.

Re: Quaker Life Breakfast Cereal Variety Pack,(4 boxes) 52 Ounce $6.01
There are SOME poskim who say you cannot buy chametz from non jewish stores (until shavous; which is the when you can assume the stock replenished) if you don't for a fact know that the chometz was owned by non-jews for duration of Passover.
really? Which poskim?

Re: I have one page with two documents on it I want to split it and print them each.
I'm not too familiar with cutting a picture in half and then printing them in full screen meaning a full size paper if I had access to Microsoft Word or a computer I would actually try to go ahead and split them up and zoom in and blow it up, is there any app or website I could just download this picture or somehow cut it and put them on four pages versus having it on two pages and having the other half of the page blank as you can see in the link below which I'll link, you can even download it if you want beautiful d'var Torah on this week's Parsha.
And if someone does end up helping me if you don't mind and show me the method on how to break them up so I can do it in the future thanks a lot good Shabbos.

Or to actually download the PDF directly you can click on this link..
I was able to open in word, unlock from "read only" (CTL+shift+ F11) and the change the format to one document per page
