Re: Air Serbia NYC-TLV
Chabad Serbia told me:

1) Tel Aviv Hummus House is not kosher at all.
2) Usually they are closed on Sunday, but if many people request dinner from them, then they will serve dinner.  They said to follow up about a week in advance.
Tell them they're about to have thousands of new visitors...

What are MEN in the USA that usually go to the Mikvah daily doing? One of the hardships of the current situation is the closure of מקוואות.

Many are accustomed to go daily to the mikvah as part of their preparation for davening. Some go only on Erev Shabbos. Many go on Shavuos (hopefully this will be a non-issue by then).

Ther are several alternatives proposed. Such as taking a shower of תשעה קבין, learning mishnayos מקוואות, and some use pools etc.

Recently, a neighbor of mine purchased an inflatable hot tub to use as a mikvah.

I have also found online some solutions that seem to be available in EY.

Such as:




Or for a more advanced solution: http://www.mikveh-malchut.co.il/

What are you doing? What good solutions are available in the US for a private mikvah?

Re: Is Right Wing Media Pushing You Left Over COVID-19? Left, right. I don't identify with either. They are all frauds. All they care about is their "honor" and money. This is kindergartners playing games with people lives. I can't fathom why people eagerly swallow all the garbage the pundits push down their throats. I identify with certain policies only.

Re: What are MEN in the USA that usually go to the Mikvah daily doing?
whats that?

Back in the day it was a weekly publication published by the bochurim of the yeshiva in Morristown with short comments and questions (sometimes with a back and forth from different authors spanning several weeks) on the Rebbe's שיחות and מאמרים. With occasional entries on other שיחות and מאמרים as well as הלכה ומנהג. No lengthy pilpulim were allowed, there was an annual publication of the Yeshiva for those.

Just a few interesting ones off the top of my head:

Bohol Island, Philippines
Nauto, a village deep in the Peruvian amazon.
Shibu Onsen, Japan
Poon Hill, Penang, Malaysia
A soviet prison (I was born there during the soviet era).
A Ukrainian operating table.
Secret military base in Transnistria.
Quba, Azerbaijan (According to wiki, it's the largest Jewish city outside of Israel).
A military compound in Egypt
Volcán Concepción & Volcán Maderas - Ometepe, Nicaragua
Bob Marleys House/Grave - Jamaica
Rybnitza (Ribnitz) - Transnistria
Swam in a Meromictic lake (GIYF) in Malayisa

Should I keep going?

I have obviously been to 100's of villages, towns & cities that i'm confident no one has been to...

There's definitely a fascinating story to be told
