HOT- $25.07 for a non iron shirts shipped from Charles Tyrwhitt. Seems you can order as many as you want and for all the other styles you can get it for $28.05 besides for what's listed on the ms.

 The MS only had certain styles that you can get any style you see while clicking the link below.
 
 If you buy the shirts for $29.50 you can apply to 15% coupon or you can buy the shirts for $33 and use a 15% coupon and get free shipping.
 Coming out as low as $25 or $28 For other styles.

 Great price haven't seen cheaper in a while.

 To play it smart best order online.

And warning you ahead once you use that code you won't be able to use it again with the same address will probably cancel next order, so order whatever you want in one order.

SHIRTS ONLY $33/$29.50 PLUS 15% OFF WITH CODE AW33X15 = $25/28


I just got a great deal $25 shipped:
https://www.ctshirts.com/usnb33 with the code:AW33X15
code isnt supposed to work on shirts but it does. originally $29.50/33 after code $25/28 shipped regular twill non iron.


usnb33 Offer terms and conditions

HT
Added a bit to his idea which makes two shirts as low as $25.


 @Dan @jj1000 And @David Smith don't know what codes are for the UK site but for $25 you could choose from different shirts.

 And of course there's always a like button below. 8)

Re: El al flight arriving close to Shabbos - again For those asking about the lawsuit, there are two reasons for it:

1. If ELAL gives them hush money or settles out of court, WIN!

2. If you know Israeli mentality at all, you will realize that the best way to avoid another Shabbos fiasco and anti Charedi smirch campaign is to make it hurt for the company.  Every time one of these stories comes out it does real damage to our community.

Not everyone here follows the Israeli news closely so allow me to elaborate: Whenever there is a Charedi vs "normal people" story happens (and you wouldn't believe the garbage that qualifies as such), it is the within the top five news stories of the day. In Israel! the land of wars, terrorist attacks, rockets, dead soldiers, wounded civilians, rallies, politics, corruption, government shout-downs, strikes, supreme court battles, organized crime, etc' etc'.
It could be the middle of a war, the government can collapse, the economy can die and somehow one of the top stories of the day will still be some altercation between two random civilians just because one of them happens to be Charedi! Oh and forget about any sort of objective journalism.
It is enough that someone writes an anti Charedi post on Facebook and is deemed credible. No investigative journalism is necessary at all. If the network wants to protect themselves from a libel lawsuit they will say "this is a post that appeared on Facebook" and then they will spend the next 15 minutes discussing the story like it was the gold standard of an investigative journalistic news report.

We can't control the lies and selective facts that people use to create inflammatory, anti semitic/charedi posts on Facebook but we can try to make it hurt for the companies or networks that use those fake news stories to further their own agendas, boost their viewership or to shift righteous blame away from themselves.

Re: Couples Stuck in USA - Rent on Israeli Apartments
There's a huge attitute problem amongst the young couples in Israel.

Most them are young kids, freshly married spoiled brats from well to do homes.

Israel to them is a "Camp". They sign $2,000-$3,000 leases while having 0 income (daddy pays).

They don't understand what a utility bill is, they can't wrap their immature heads around the concepts of Vaad Baayit or Arnona.

They treat it like a game. Which landlord can they screw next. I started vetting more and more but noticed that even the uber-rich don't care.

To them it's not an apartment, it's a honeymoon suite. Well if I can play games with Hotels I'm entitles to same here too, no?

There is a yid whose name is well know in the world, a level wealth on the richlist, probably the wealthiest chareidi family on earth (not American. Way wealthier than Scheiner Rechnitz etc).

His grandkids take apartments in Jerusalem by flashing the brand name. Tachlis, the rents do not get paid and you can't talk to any Dayan because no-one can go against these guys.

I think this might belong in the wedding thread, but sending off kids to Israel needs to way regulated past Corona.

/end rant

Itís clear youíre going through a tough situation but stereotyping & ranting like that wonít get you anywhere. Iíve lived in israel for five years already & none of what you said is true about me or many others I know. People like this exist wherever they live so instead of deciding itís an israel problem realize that itís the ppl youíre dealing with & like somebody else replied maybe deal with a different clientele.

I came back to America before they closed the border & now Iím stuck hereÖ am I a spoiled selfish brat for discussing with my landlord & speaking to a rav if necessary about my chiyuv at this pointÖ no I donít plan on walking away & telling my landlord screw you but itís gonna be tough for me to pay months of rent now without being able to be thereÖ

I'd love to respond to each of your ridiculous posts, but the time and patience is simply not there.
Your generalizations are very off. Here's another few widely accepted generalizations with significantly more truth to try on for size. 1)There isn't one single honest apt broker in this country. 2)Apt managers/brokers are greedy rats with the single goal of fleeching whatever they can from the "wealthy campers daddies" 3)There isn't one single honest apt broker in this country.

And the reason why you go through these hardships should be blindingly obvious to you. The only ones that pay your obscene prices are those are "honeymooners" because they are the only ones that can afford your artificially inflated rent. Don't try saying you can't get contracts signed, you can't take them to BD, they can't figure out bills, you can't get headchecks..... You knowingly and willingly overlook this issues and risks because Uncle Benjamin is all you can see when you're in this business. The vast majority of every other community in Jerusalem manage just fine. All of a sudden when your toupee hits the fan, you're the victim? Run an honest business and you wouldn't be as bitter.
The crowd you refer to is most certainly a miniscule portion of the Americans living in Israel, come out of your shell and look out of your bubble. Just remember a a moldy apple will keep on attracting worms. So to a moldy apple the world is full of creepy crawlies.

Now that we have this subtle rebuttal out of the way, I see no reason why they wouldn't have to pay rent. I was told the names of a couple Rabbanim who said people didn't have to pay, but when contacting said Rabbanim I was told otherwise. And as much as I'm aware any Chosen Mishpat BD that was asked so far in Jerusalem said they likely have to pay.


Do I have to write "/end rant"? Because I'm most certainly not done.

Re: Delta to tlv opening May 8 Regarding everyone asking why someone would use a travel agent if there are the above mentioned risks involved.
1) TA's are not here just for DDF members. On the contrary most DDF members book online anyway. There are many people today (even with internet access) who are simply not competent enough to book a ticket on their own. Passengers often also want the opinion of a travel agent. (Which airline do you recommend? Which has better CS? Which has the least delays? What is the minimum connect you recommend? Take care of my KSML, seat etc., pre order an extra bag for me....)

2) The average Joe (many DDF newbies too), does not know that there's a major difference in which OTA you use. Like if you book with Expedia or Priceline, vs booking with Vayama or Kiwi.... With the latter, you're likely to find yourself in a far tougher position then had you used a human travel agent. But, Vayama was $10 cheaper....

3) TA's often have special one-way fares and nets. And can often advise when it's worth using miles rather than revenue (depends on the TA, obviously)

4) Most important is that if IINM, the situation going on now where airlines are refusing refunds for cancelled flights is something that is unprecedented. In most cases, a travel agent is the most helpful thing you can have in case of a cancellation. For example, if there's a snow storm in the Northeast, rather than waiting 2 hours on hold to speak to your airline or Priceline to refund or rebook you, you can just make a call to your travel agent and be done in 5 minutes. Even in the current situation, early in March before the non-stop flights to the US were canceled, we were able to re accommodate all our passengers from LH/LX/OS to UA non-stop, and I really felt bad for all those who booked on their own... Every TA can tell you how many calls they got in those couple of weeks from people who booked online BEGGING for help. And let's not forget, not all airlines blocked refunds. Many were simple to refund as long as the flight was canceled.
The only time the dispute issue can be a real challenge (besides now), is when a client has a personal dispute with the airline regarding his flight. For example, passenger missed his flight or connection. Airline blaming passenger and passenger blaming airline. If he booked online, he'll dispute (no promise he'll win), but if he used an agent, he should remember, that the travel agent is definitely not the one responsible for him missing his flight. And if the passenger disputes, the TA would be in a far tougher position than in the current times.
I personally am not terribly afraid of clients disputing tickets now (where the flight is cancelled). IMHO, if an airline will dare ADM agents for a flight that didn't fly, they will face a massive lawsuit. Besides, I highly doubt the DOT wouldn't protect the agents for something like that.

Re: Will there be Sleep Away Camp this summer? The overall hashkafa of the camps that are opening is:
We will not allow Yidishe Neshamos to wander the streets during the summer. We are opening come what may.

I believe that many camp directors (and I assume the Daas Torah guiding them) feel that there is an element of yaharog v'al yaavor when it comes to keeping kids in camp and off the streets. They'll do whatever it takes to keep the kids in a kosher environment, even if the entire country turns against us.
