Yona Yahav is GONE After 15 years of hate towards the religious in Haifa this hater is on his way out. The new mayor has already signed an agreement with the charedim to join her and promised many things to them that Yahav refused! This is a great day!!

Upgraded seat by asking I was booked on the lowest class for a Cathay flight from the Philippines to Israel through Hong Kong. I have absolutely no status with Cathay or One World. When I got to check in I politely asked the cost to upgrade to Prem Economy (I assumed she realized for the HKG-TLV flight). She told me to wait a minute went to talk to someone and came back and said I have a seat in J would you like it? I said "Do you really need to ask me :)" And just like that I got upgraded to Business Class for the flight to Hong Kong.

Has this ever happened to you?

Re: Elal airlines
Good question
- On Oneworld you might get objection from BA and Cathay.
- On Skyteam, I don't see anyone who would object besides perhaps DL and AF.

I cant see an airline like DL block for one route that they have on one flight a day from the hottest market in the US.

Pro-Israel flight TR Not much in the way of destinations but figured some might like the Doha part.

I booked with 40k AA from TLV-AMM-DOH-CRK (J)
My return was 63k AC for CRK-ICN-IST-TLV (J)

Flight to Amman:
Flying RJ I got lucky with the 787 with mostly lie flat seats for all 20 minutes of flight! I did ask why they fly the 787 to Israel on such a short hop and was told its all for the cargo (Trade is doing well I guess). Service was absolutely fine and the flight attendants (local to Jordan) were all very nice. What I found interesting is the fact they do a remote stand for this flight (You would think a 787 would get a gate)
Going through security I had no issue with my Tefillin (as some wrote they had), they did take them out to feel inside but nothing else. For the first time and sub-sequentially at each security check, my laptop got swabbed.
The lounge for RJ/QR is absolutely huge, one of the biggest I have seen (outside of QR in Qatar), ton of seating/drinks/fruits.

Flight to Qatar:
Again I got lucky flying the A350 as opposed to the A330 the normally operate. Service was outstanding seat was very comfortable. The only negative I feel is the lack of privacy given that the seat is right up against the aisle and there is absolutely no partition at all. When you do lay flat your head is only slightly blocked from the aisle. Once we landed we again had a remote stand but Qatar has a nice bus for business class passengers so no big deal.
I was slightly worried when I landed as I have a huge Visa (Aliya Visa) attached to my Passport from Israel. I exited through the Business Class lounge so I feel I had a more relaxed guard. He barely glanced at my passport and didn't ask one question.
I was planning on taking a day tour from the airport but misunderstood the agent thinking I can get it after immigration, however it is BEFORE immigration and once outside you cannot book any longer! So I went to information and they told me that I can take a bus into the city and then walk around myself. I was way to tired so just headed for the bus terminal got on a bus that drives all the way around Doha and Pearl-Qatar (the cost is 10 Rial or USD $3). There was no one else on the bus so I got a private tour from the Nepal Bus driver :).  The bus I took was the 777 and is like a coach bus, very comfortable. What I realized from my trip is that probably 70% of the population that you see in the main areas are foreign workers. I did not walk around with a Yarmulka but I feel that if I went again I do not think I would be nervous at all. People are all nice and helpful.

I went back to the airport and headed for straight for the business class check in and security. Given that my ticket was from RJ they switched for the Qatar background. This time when I went through security the lady did flip through my passport and when she reached my Israeli Visa she stopped for about 2 minutes reading the page carefully. She did not ask me any questions, just read it then stamped me through!
Again I had no issues with Tfillin at all (here they didnt even take them out). The lounge for Qatar Business Class is absolutely huge!! Probably the size of TLV airport alone (:D). They have a huge dining room in a "fancy restaurant" style seating with menus on the tables and waitered service. I headed straight for the quiet rooms to rest/sleep as it had been a long long day/night for me. The rest areas are very private, almost like a hotel room, with couches and a lounge chair, they have hangars and a small table if you want to eat/drink. You have your own TV as well. When you go to "Check in" they will bring you any type of drink you request and a big bottle of Water/Seltzer and Ice. I scheduled a time for the showers, that were located in this area. Showers here are great with a spacious area and good pressure (Unlike UA showers in HKG or Austrian in Vienna)!! I slept for a little and headed off to my gate which was again a remote stand, Due to the lack of a Business Class bus they made us all wait until the rest of the plane was boarded then we got our bus...they didnt want to mix us with the common folk :).
The flight was great, we all got Pajamas which were great just not as great as Eva Air (only other time I got). Seat again has a lack of privacy and very hard to look out the window. Given the blockade we did have a slight flight plan that put us over Iran then Pakistan which I was not too comfortable about (What would happen if we had an emergency there?) I do believe we were one of the last flights that flew over Pakistan before they shut the airspace.
Landing in Clark was a breeze there is nothing like landing at a small airport in a country where they hire a million more people then needed :). Bags came out super quick no line in security/immigration.

Return flight to be continued....

Re: What Is The Greatest Travel Hack You Did? Booked a seat on JetBlue they "upgraded" me to the exit row aisle. Unfortunately the gentlemen sitting in the middle was not Large he was super sized large with a BO that could kill a Rhino. My whole body was in the aisle and this was not going to work for me. (It was hot and he was sweaty and wearing very short sleeves). Then the Jewish brain clicked into hyper-drive.....When they came to ask if we were willing to help in case of an emergency, I said absolutely not!! Needless to say some other gentlemen who did not see how I was sitting jumped at the offer to get the exit row......The look he gave me on the way out was priceless..

Re: Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread The Anti-Charedi Govt in Israel has given more money to bnei yeshiva then all of Lakewood combined 100 times over.

The Anti-Charedi Govt has had deals with Chareidi parties in the Knesset for the last 10 years.

The Anti Charedi Govt will have almost a 30% representation by Chaeredim.

Lakewood over the past few years have become more anti-zionist thanks to a certain segment of Judaism that is moving in. So glad that Lakewood is aligning itself with the Left wing Democrats that they have come to love. Maybe soon Lakewood will have the Pride flags flown from the Yeshiva when Bernie Sanders comes to give a shiur.

Re: Geting To Meron
The only train from Navon.
My understanding is Navon=>TLV=>Tel Aviv=>Karmiel=>Miron.
Does that seem right?
No

Navon-TLV-HAIFA (any stop, though Kiryat Motzkin would be only one stop to Karmiel) then Karmiel.

Nine times the coward mentions BO in his cabinet meeting. He is obsessed with him because he can never measure up to him.

What world do you live in?

Trump will be reelected by a landslide in the Electoral College and taking out CA and Southern NY he will butcher the popular vote as well. The country is rocking! Markets are back up again, trade deals will be done, and he is keeping Turkey in check. BO was exactly that BO!!

Re: Cancelled flight from Tel Aviv with a twist
Thanks, I found one firm and filled out a form on their site. If you (or anyone else for that matter) know of any legal firm that might be interested in the case, pls let me know.

PS: I would have been absolutely happy to let it go (as we'd done before with another airline) if it were not for the treatment we received. And of course as we are not citizens of either country, Aeroflot thinks they can get away with this!

If you have Facebook there is a group called "Ask an Israeli lawyer" you should ask on there. You will get responses from actual Israeli lawyers and you may even have a few people take the case.

Re: Its Open Season on Jews Starting to understand more and more why Jews in Germany/Poland/Austria never actually tried leaving. People have always questioned their actions, but based on the past year and the amount of attacks on Jews and the lack of any bump of Aliya shows we just sadly dont learn the lessons of the past.

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
This isn't about being afraid. It is about what is best for the US. A legit question is does this make the US safer? To a lesser extent does this make our allies safer, especially Israel?

We are still left with the question, why now? So far the WH has not answered that.

I am curious would the question have been the same with Hitler? Why drag the US into a war they did not need?

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
Do you really believe firing missiles at a US army base isn't warlike?

If it was just a random attack it would definitely be warlike but after what we did to them I think its just allowing the children to fight back a little and then say enough.

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
Tit for tat doesn't make it less warlike.

Warlike means we go to war over what happens. Tit for Tat is letting them tell their constituents (like @CountValentine ) that they have harmed/killed/destroyed US forces, even though its a lie. Dictators need these type of victories in order to impress and quiet down the people.....It really is quite simple to understand.

Trip to Vienna and Prague There are truly amazing fares from Israel to Europe in winter. I had found flights for friends of mine for $75 round trip on Wizz Air. After my wife found out I was quickly finding myself at the computer to purchase flights for ourselves. I did not tell her where we were flying to and all details of the trip were kept hidden. Here are the details broken down as best I could.

Spent M"S in the Criwne Plaza city center it deserves ever single star (5 of them) that they have. Fantastic all around!!

20200125_231639 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr


Sunday Morning we took the train to the airport (2 stops), I bought Wizz Priority (101 Sheqel) that includes priority boarding and one carry on, as well as a front seat X leg room seat (160 sheqel) Yes that is more then the ticket cost but boy for someone who has gotten used to flying business this was the only way I was gonna last.

20200126_103541 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

Next time this might be my seat......

20200126_140407 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

There are no lounges in Terminal one but I found a place to charge my phone and pass the time until we started boarding. The flight was completely full with multiple Ski tours for frum people which was quiete nice.  The flight was enjoyable and soon enough we were landing into Vienna.



20200126_103541 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

I booked us 2 nights in "Der Wilhelhof" which was located a 5-10 minute walk from most of the kosher locations as well as the Stadtempl (12 minutes). I was looking for a 4+ hotel in the jewish area that was not gonna break the bank and this was perfect. It was in the $125 range and had fantastic reviews.

20200126_155838 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr



Arriving in the afternoon gave us some time to get to the hotel, go to Meah Shearim to eat and then I booked a night ride on the ferris wheel which was iabout 5 minutes from the hotel. Meah Shearim is still every bit as good as I remember from the last few times I was there. The Chicken soup was 5/5 the Sushi as always is out of this world. I got 2 chinese dishes which were also amazing and their fries are great as well!!

20200126_173745 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

The Ferris Wheel was nice but it was so cold even in the closed carts that it was hard to enjoy fully and I would recommend doing this by day as the views at night where not that great (though there was no wait so that is nice.

20200126_192947 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

20200126_192918 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

In the morning we davened at Stadtempl for Shachris, they used the only Torah that survived the war (in Vienna) for Krias Hatora (Rosh Chodesh), I got an aliya and it was such a powerful moment in my life. The thought of who donated it and who leined from it in the past is just powerful!! After davening they showed us around the shul and the small memorial they have.

20200127_081643 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

After davening we went to Ohel Moshe for some Heimishe eggs and bagels and bought milk for future coffees. The food there is ok for breakfast and it definitely did the job.

After eating we went to the Imperial Treasury/Hofbburg Palace it was a very nice tour inside to see the treasures and clothes they wore 800-900 years ago. There is definitely a Christian presence that is felt there but I walked through those rooms quickly.

20200127_104103 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

20200127_103841 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

We walked back from there to Novellino strolling through most of the old city. We ordered a salad and a pizza there both were decent though it is more expensive then I liked.

We then rested until Mincha/Maariv at the Stadtempl, and then headed to Aleph Aleph for supper. We got the soup (chicken and vegetable) and ordered a Shnitzel which came huge and big enough for both of us. For dessert of course we got the Strudel.

After supper we walked to the opera house for a Vienna Orchestra performance which was out of this world. It was about $45 each and lasted a little over 90 minutes. Was worth every penny I spent. I Ubered back to the hotel as it was just freezing outside and it would have been over 30 minutes to walk back.

20200127_195812 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

Tuesday we woke up headed out early to breakfast at Shefa which was about 3 minute walk from the hotel. Shefa is fantastic in terms of a full grocer that would make many small stores in Israel be ashamed. They had a butcher section, a fish section, roasted nuts section, bakery items and of course regular shopping as well. probably 5-6 aisles of stuff outside teh Fish/meat stuff.

After breakfast we headed out on the Hop on and off bus to go see the sights around the city. Eventually making our way to the Schonbrun Palace. I had done this tour in the past and felt it was a real waste of time and money so I convinced my wife to take pictures on the outside and do a little tour of the grounds. As we were leaving a sign caught my eye with pictures in full costume. Definitely a unique activity and the backgrounds and costumes were superb. The cost was 29 EUR for 10 minutes of ictures using your phone. IF you wanted professional it was $60.

After the tour we headed back to the hotel for our luggage ran to shefa for lunch (food was much much better then breakfast), we had Pizza and a Tuna sandwhich. From there I surprised my wife with a trip to Prague. I bought 2 business class seats on the express train into Prague. We got the closed 4 seat compartment to ourselves for about 2 hours before the other passengers showed up. It was absolutely worth the little extra money for the upgrade. I believe I paid $78 total for both of us.

Once in Prague we walked to our hotel which was in the old city right outside the jewish quarter, at a place called "The Dominican" this is a great place that really lived up to the European style hotels and beds. The staff definitely had looks when I walked with my Yarmulke but too bad on them!!

20200128_192527 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

20200128_192518 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

For supper we went to Dinitz we had the Steak Sandwhich and teh Chicken Sandwich. The servings definitely shrank from the last time I was there but the food was still fantastic!! We walked the square back to the hotel and headed too sleep.

20200128_203341 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

20200129_100229 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

20200129_095644 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

I then booked a tour of the jewish quarter which was supposed to be a one hour tour but we were the only ones that signed up so we got about an hour and half in depth explanation of the cities Jews that lived there. It was fascinating and I highly reccomend it.  One thing which I never heard before was that the cemetery which looks like it is on a hill compared to the rest of the area. Is actually a hill because when they ran out of room to bury yidden who were niftar they had to bury them one on top of the other. There are over 6 levels of bodies one on top of the other!!!

20200129_125810 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

 

After the tour I paid (like a sucker) to go daven at the maharal/klei yakor, went to the different shuls and jewish sights there are to see.

One new thing that has happened over the past month is a new kosher store that sells this out of this world dessert that you see EVERYWHERE in Prague. This place got a hechsher and the desert is freaking amazing. It is a cinnamin twist hallowed out with nutella chocalate and vanilla ice cream with strawberries. There are other types to choose from as well. This place is located across the street from the Maharal shul.

After Supper we grabbed an uber to the airport where I took my wife on her first "business class" flight to Zurich where we had a 13 hour layover heading to Israel.

20200129_182023 by ProIsrael Israel, on Flickr

Re: Israel Hotels Master Thread
I am traveling to Israel for the first time in August with my wife.

Based on the info from this site, we booked 3 nights at Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem at $365.  Thank you.

Now, I need to book 2 nights in Galilee area (8/23-8/25) and 3 nights in Tel Aviv (8/25-8/28).  Ideally in a comparable hotel in the $400 +/- range.

Can you give me recommendations where to stay in TLV and Galilee?

Thanks in advance.

I just finished a stay at the Crowne Plaza center city and it was absolutely amazing. They do have a shuttle to the beach for free. It is located right next to the Azreili mall and the Hashalom train station.

Re: 2019-2020 Israeli Election (See Also: Definition Of Insanity)
Does the peace plan announced help Bibi?
Does being joined at the hip with Trump help him?

Problem is those who did not vote for Bibi wont vote for him this round regardless of what he accomplishes. They have a full blown hate agenda against him. What this does help him is in his negotiations with YB when the time comes. I do not think there will be an election in the next 5years with a clear victory for the right (remember the left have zero chance of forming a govt given they have max 45 seats). But Lieberman cannot turn down Netanyahu offer if he is offering annexation as it will make Lieberman look very weak in any further elections.

The part that surprises me is the Shas/Gimmel vs YB, I thought it would simmer down so there would be a hope for a coalition.

Re: Prepping for COVID-19
Across the industry, “you’re talking about 50 days to get to a customer,” said Matthew Wadiak, who runs Cooks Venture, a chicken supplier based in Arkansas and Oklahoma. “Fifty days ago, we didn’t know this was even on the horizon. There was essentially no way to plan for it.”

But that's not true. Covid19 broken dec31 2019? They had plenty of time. That was 75 days ago.

They cant plan every time there is a virus that comes out.

His claims are perfectly valid. Instead of calling him names. If people are shopping in packed stores (THEY 100% ARE) Going to restaurants and weddings (THEY 100% ARE) there is no reason to close a shul (assuming people can wash hands and there is an abundance of soap)

Re: Corona virus and your shull
1. They will not be going to restaurants anymore and most likely not most weddings either
2. Stores are not the same rsk level since it is not sustained exposure.
3. מי שאכל שום וריחו נודף, יחזור ויאכל שום אחר ויהא ריחו נודף?

True. However how many people were first to drop minyan before going to restaurants. And people are still going shopping regardless of how many people are there.

Explain?  You doubt the numbers?  Or you mean a pipe dream for us?

Chevron is on the side tht any positive part of the virus must be lies.

Re: מי כעמך ישראל - Post your stories here The Bnei Akiva in Israel have a project where each kid gets an older person to call (75+) each day to see how they are doing. They are also asked to speak to the person about life stories and to write it down. After this is all over they will be putting a book out with all the stories. I think this is amazing!

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
Where's the post about the Nobel prize winner saying he would be surprised if they're over 10 deaths in Israel.

It's at 100+

What about the ones that predicted 5000 in severe conditions with 2000+ dead (in Israel)? The nobel peace guy is a hell of a lot closer. This has destroyed dozens of families in the frum world. But the hysteric people were predicting thousands of dead in the frum community. This is the good news thread, lets keep it that way

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
As long as those dire predictions kept people home and saved even one life, it was worth it.

If we banned cars we would also be saving lives....is that worth it?

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim
When "a few people might break the rules" involves a risk of pikuach nefesh you absolutely do asser everything.

Ok...I guess this is another thing we can add to the differences between Israel rabonim and American Rabanim...I absolutely have full respect for both opinions just curious for the explanation...

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim
You say that, but where are the public pronouncements?
Yes, they clearly exist, but no rav seems to be willing to go on the record to allow them.

Even if they wont go on record, there are some that participate. Actions speak louder then words.

Re: Can we stop this stupidity ?!? This forum is becoming more and more like Climate change hysterics. Is it happening? Yes. Should we all cower and lock ourselves inside? NO. Is Corona now the cause of every death in the US? Does it cause abnormal symptoms on .00001% of cases? Yes. Should we be spreading info that babies are now gonna be born with fourteen fingers? NO.

Re: Can we stop this stupidity ?!?
Are you really comparing something that has killed hundreds of Jews and (based on current estimates) kills nearly 1% of everyone infected to climate change?
Wow.

The virus is real and should be taken seriously. (gloves/masks, social distancing). Spreading every kind of rumor about symptoms and scaring pregnant women or people with little kids is called hype. Those things have NOT affected hundreds of Yidden so yes I am making the comparisons about the HYPE of weird symptoms.
