Re: The New DDMS!
Then what Dan claimed that with desktop notification on you get deals quicker doesn't always hold true.
I consistently get the desktop notifications several minutes before it's online. sometimes I miss them, then check the website and its not there yet. the phone - chrome notifications come a little later and the text message way last.

Re: Private Island Paradise: Something Fishy's Anniversary Adventure Absolutely amazing, and your writing is spectacular as well. As I'm going through this I'm thinking, ok, maybe I can get my wife to deal with no a/c, the plane, the boat, (fat chance on any of those), but all hope was lost when I got to this shot:

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread One point to add, or be aware of, is that all kashrus supervision is a money maker and operating as a business, usually a non profit.
So in a sense the smaller hashgochos have more negiyus than the individual RCs or decision makers at a larger organization

Re: Rubashkin freed from prison.
no, you were the only one that actually watches that video lol
Am I the only one that was turned off from the video by the repeated emphasis of "Goyishe"?
No. and I also cringed when he said this is the first time the mishebeirech was said, and then proceeded to read something that is said in literally thousnads of shuls every shabbos. but @Chaikel  got some free advertising :)

Re: Rubashkin freed from prison.
No I am talking about the Federal charges that were dropped after the 86 convictions of fraud. Please lets not pretend there was no child labor. If you want retry this make sure you use facts and not personal feelings.
I don't believe there was intentional child labor. Remember, it's dangerous ground, and often illegal, to ask age or even legal status. Puts employers in a real bind, as many employers and small business owners here can attest to.
The way we find out a social is fake is only when the IRS alerts us months after the first filings, sometimes years.

Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving? what @chulent said is true, the more schools that become necessary due to community growth the more specificity there is in each school. And sadly, the more in town the city becomes.
For example, LA is well known for the Chabad, Chassideishe and general community being very well integrated. However, consider that when my wife was in HS there was only one Bais Yaakov. Over the past 15 years they have opened a Chabad Bais Yaakov and a Chassideshe Bais Yaakov. They also opened a second, less academic, Bais Yaakov.
 Will my children feel the same integration that we did?
Consider further, that in my children's K-8, mainstream school (there is also a Chabad school, and a chassideshe school which opened in the last two decades) there is still a broad mix of families, from super yeshivish to TV in the living room. (I'd guess that at this point 99% of the parent body cover hair etc.) Most are squarely in the middle. However, the influences that I have trouble with come clearly from the right, not from the more modern side. Because if the Kleins, go to Bermuda for Pesach, or the Friedman's mommy listens to non jewish music, I can explain that to my children, and show how we have such a awesome and beautiful Torahdige life. However, when Rabbi A.'s daughter has a brand new wardrobe every YT, and my son comes home from Rabbi B.'s home, after playing with his son and asking to continue the video, because they 'have a computer that hangs on the wall in the playroom' and were watching LizardLand or whatever, and Rabbi A. and Rabbi B. are considered by all to be chashuva klei kodesh, and Rabbi C.'s wife has a DVD gemach of kosher movies, which we don't like our kids to watch, I sort of feel like I'm better off with my kids having the more modernishe friends.

Re: Do you Daven?
I must have been living under a rock. I and my chevra would never ever ever think of [not] doing those things. Not to show off or ch"v put people down. But to make statements that sounds like what ur saying is the norm is completely foreign to me. Maybe it's my OOT upbringing. IDK. But I'm blown away.
I would imagine most of us are under your rock
I don't think @iAm is describing normative behavior for the average DDF'er.

Re: Why is our divorce rate rising drastically?
In the past decade, the divorce rate in our community has risen several times over.

This is broadly broken down into 3 groups (in decreasing prevalence)
1- Newly weds. 20s. 0-2.7 years of marriage
2- People who have been married for decades. 50s-60s. children are now teens/out of house
3- Some group in between.

Why is this happening?
The same community where no one davens?

Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising There are a number of threads discussing programs, would be good to put them together.
Look carefully at ads, many do not advertise hashgocha. They advertise guest speakers, and people assume that if rabbi X eats there so can I. But does rabbi X actually eat there?

Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising
I don't know this person.  But my gut reaction is that seems very messed up. I can't imagine serving ppl food that I wasn't comfortable with.
Thoroughly discussed and argued elsewhere, there are two distinct schools of thought here. Pesach seems to be more understandable to others than generally serving food you won't eat.

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread
Who's there to call regarding this product?
K is put on by the company, so you'd have to call them and ask them if it's their own assessment or under rabbinical supervision. then you'd have to verify with the Rabbi. also, there's a real chashash here of Gelatin -

Supposedly this is why the OK stopped certifying Plantes 20 years ago or so, they didn't like that some products were real treif. The OU has seperate production lines for the kosher stuff. (all this according to the internet).

Re: Los Angeles Master Thread
Delice Pico is reopening without a Hechsher. Claim to still be CY but I doubt anyone CY would step foot in there.
I'll believe it when I see it. They've been saying they're reopening on la brea too. Neither will succeed without hashgocha, and probably not with it either

Re: Los Angeles Master Thread
I've heard that these type of places exist on the non Jewish clientele as well so not having a haschgacha might not be so bad.

I'm a huge fan of Lieders. I got them to do frozen double-wrapped meals for a trip to OGG a few years ago, and they nailed almost everything and worked to accommodate our pickup schedule. Prices were reasonable as well.
that's great. La Gondola does it too, but probably much more pricey.

Re: Starbucks lost its hechsher!?! To clarify. Starbucks never had a hechsher. The few things and few Baltimore store that the star K vouched for, they no longer do.

It can also be that credit piggybacking doesn't work for business cards.
Could be. Exactly my point. Business cards is a normal place to have multiple unrelated users for a legitimate purpose. Personal cards are not

Re: Starbucks lost its hechsher!?!
That doesn't make any sense.
Sure it does. If you go to McDonald's and buy a black coffee you won't have a Hava Amina to buy a burger. If you go to Starbucks you might get a latte and then you might get a flavored mochiato

My husband will be commuting to Monsey and staying there 3 days a week this year. Is there a hotel or motel that has a program where there is an incentive when you sleep over twice a week on a weekly basis? Nothing fancy needed, just no bedbugs. Thank you.

Re: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
Some Poskim hold its not a problem, since bourbon is only kitniyos sheavar Pesach.
Didnt think of that, interesting to hear that there's 2 sides to the argument, I guess that's why you should ask your LOR.
This is inaccurate, bourbon has actual chametz. Bourbon mash has to be 51% corn, and usually contains rye or barley as a significant second ingredient. There is a different heter, not to buy, but to keep, because of hefsed, discussed on the forums previously.

Re: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
I'm assuming there's an argument the other way, because most kosher stores sell these products, I just haven't heard it yet. All kashrus lists 'do not recommend' them.
Not a rayah to anything

Re: Liqour/Whiskey/Bourbon Master Thread
There is so much confusion with alcohol in general.

When a list says 'not recommended' they should explain the reason why, so ppl can make a decison for themselves (ex. Sherry cask).
Imho, when they write 'not recommended' on bottles like glenlivet 18 or glenfiddich 12, 15, 18 etc, w/o reasoning when most ppl drink these, it cheapens the whole list and ppl disregard it.
The CRC, for example, is happy to explain themselves, C and are very well researched. They have different classifications within sherry casks, and are ok with some, not others. (depends on how much final product was in said casks and other factors).
They have no responsibility to explain why they recommend or not recommend, and sometimes they don't have all the facts but also don't know that it's not good either (c.f. some Starbucks products). But if you ask them they're happy to explain.

Re: Chabad Minhagim: Pros & Cons

Just to put things in perspective: the Ravad held that it's okay to say that hashem has a body....

He does not. Read it again.

General comment to you - it's ok to question why. Especially on a psak, even a hanhaga. It's not at all a stira to emunas chachamim. There is plenty of chassidishe literature that does exactly that.

Many bad reviews.
In particular: It doesn't keep the coffee/ water hot.  It brews the coffee and then the pot contents cool off.
Not good as a Shabbos urn.
Pretty sure I've been using this as a shabbos urn for the last two years. What's the problem?
