Re: Do we really need the US to recognize Jerusalem as the capital?
Dont they believe it is theirs to begin with?
Yes, Israel believes it has the rights to the entire Israel. As do the Palestinians. Israel has offered time and again to compromise, often to the point of shooting itself in the foot with indefensible borders. The Palestinians have turned them down time and again (see 1949, Oslo accords, Olmert offer). The Palestinians have never even acknowledged Israel's right to exist.
But yeah, there is a peace process.

Re: Prison
I cannot sue because it is family and that would mean writing them off as well. No one else seems to understand my side. They fell bad for him that he has this " Gambling problem" they want to fix him and leave me to the side. The amount of times I heard the words "just forgive him and move on" is nauseating. No one says boo to him. He ruined many lives and I do not believe he was "healed" in the rehab places he went to.
Sorry for doubting you. That's fair enough.

Re: Buying A Car In Canada To Export To The US
Same procedure for a year or 2 used car? Please PM me  for details. TIA
Used car - if you're buying privately is much simpler because there is no HST. You can just search on Kijiji and buy and export.
Just get the seller to sign their registration that it's sold, drive it to the states (exporting it at the border - you'll need a letter from the manufacturer that it meets USA standards) and transfer ownership/register it at your local DMV

Would you have been better off if you never found DDF? Thoughts? I've gained a lot, but still think I would have been better off without it. And I can't give it up.

Huh? Of course he can. I work as a TA myself, and if for some reason I forgot to designate a passenger as a CNN, I would void (within the permissible time frame, of course) and re-issue with the discount. And I expected the same from them.
If a multi million dollar OTA doesn't know how to issue child and infant tickets, there is something seriously wrong....
I think it's generous to refer to them as travel agents

Now says this
Airfare "deals" to TLV in cattle class with no human class deal.
(Especially when family members living in Israel post about them on family whatsapp, not realizing that at least half of the Americans on the group are only interested in business class deals).
And this
TLV final security screening for business class is only one lane, often resulting in longer wait times that cattle class, giving a cattle like taste to the line.

Re: How hard is it financially to make it in Israel?
Would love to hear from @Ergel here.
I've stopped reading/posting on DDF (taking too much of my time), but got a notification so I'll respond and check back to follow up a couple of times.

I've only been here 8 months, but this is what I see so far.

Tuition is obviously much cheaper or free.

Professional Services are much cheaper (instead of $100 minimum charge for a plumber, it will be 150₪

Health Care is free. It's not an American PPO obviously but I think it's ok. You don't need to wait to see doctors. We have additional health Care which will cover surgery at any doctor and all possible medications and isn't super expensive (still working on, but likely my employer will cover this)

Housing in yerushalayim/RBS is VERY expensive, compare to the most expensive places in NYC

Car ownership is prohibitively expensive, between cost of the car, gas, insurance, registration fees, etc.

Food - some things are more expensive, some are less. Overall it's probably similar to Toronto, which is to say a tad higher than NYC.

In terms of employment, BH I've been very lucky to be able to keep my job abroad and work remotely. From what I understand, if you work in tech (which BH, I do), salaries are extremely competitive and similar to the US. Law/accounting apparently salaries aren't competitive. My wife is in education and honestly we are just looking to break even on costs associated with her working.

But in general, people live a simple lifestyle here. Not that everyone is a parush, it's just the way of life.

We could not be happier, BH.

Re: How hard is it financially to make it in Israel?
You're making a religious argument to negate the realities of how hard it is to make it in Israel. Yishuv Eretz Yisrael is hard. Everyone agrees. But you cant say come here and give up creature comforts because its the right thing to do. Thats not an attitude issue .Thats a practical reality issue.
I totally disagree. When people talk about challenges and how hard it is to make it, it's not what vegetables you can buy and which cuts of meat are available. Those things, if you think the value of Yishuv Haaretz is important are just noise. The difficulty is socio-economic adjustment. Getting used to the culture. Integrating your kids. Making a parnassah. Those are real issues. Whether there is Shallot's level sushi, not so much.

Re: One day or two
Maybe yes, and maybe not. Let's hear some non-Lubavitchers chime in on this one, if you ask your Rov in the US whether you need to keep one day or two in EY, does he give you a psak, or does he send you to ask a Rov in EY?
So that's your issue? The semantics? So let's just call it shorter rather than abbreviated.
I don't recall ever having quoted the Chasam Sofer.
No, my issue is with your condescending, holier than thou attitude with the unwillingness or inability to see something from any other viewpoint that your version of your Rebbe.

You present as fact in this thread that there will be two days yuntif laasid lavo. I assume your Rebbe said this at some point? Was it a recurring theme in his teachings? Is it printed somewhere? Is it based on any mekoros?

Re: Random Posts For Non-Meshugeners It's amazing the difference between a good rep and a bad rep. Trying to change a SPG reservation. The first rep was trying to explain to me why it made sense that my points balance would reflect the points being deducted twice. The second rep proactively realized that the points were being deducted twice and is calling the help desk to ensure that doesn't happen.

Re: 2019 Israeli election

Here's a suggestion for Israeli politicians: let the Knesset vote on a law to hold new elections and bar Lieberman or anyone from his party in participating. If there's one thing EVERYONE across the political spectrum can agree upon at this point, is that Lieberman is a non-trust-worthy troublemaker (and possibly highly corrupt).
Do you actually believe the things you write?

Nope. And not sure what you mean by number of the carrier - I have had at least 5 different carriers deliver.
And each one of them called me when they tried to deliver. Is your Israeli phone number on your order?
