Whats the deal with leaving the country while having an open claim?
Can i just skip certifying while I'm out and continue when i get back?

I believe that all Kosher establishments in Paris have Pas and Cholov Yisroel. However not necessarily glatt (most arenít officially glatt but you can find out with the Mashgiach if they have something glatt)

When are you going?
Doesnt glatt apply just to meat?
Regarding the dairy stores, are any of them only cholov yisroel?
Potentially in the winter. (If borders will open)

They claim they are glatt kosher, but the Chabad rabbi advised me to avoid
Were you there? Can we get a TR?

I'm sure this was discussed upthread, can someone point me there please?
The wiki has restaurants with Hashgacha. Which hashgacha allows what? (cholov yisroel, pas yisroal, etc)

Bumping this thread. Anyone traveled with them? Have some nice prices from NYC-PAR in winter...

Surprised that I couldn't find a thread for this yet.
From what i hear, it is a beautiful country with a relatively strong Jewish infrastructure. (Minyanim, kosher restaurants in both Tbilisi and Batumi)
Am thinking of planning a trip there in the winter.
Anybody been? Recommendations?

My research so far;

Batumi has a nice Hilton
Beautiful coastal city
There is a Jewish Center, not sure if it is an official Chabad or what, but i believe they have food as well.

Has a nice Marriott, walking distance to Chabad
Theres a new Hilton (set to open in September), but it is a bit further out.
Chabad has a restaurant
There are a few more restaurants that are Jewish, but I'm not quite sure if kosher
Tbilisi has chairlift over the city

Has old shuls, lots of Jewish history

Prices are quite low
Modern train between Tbilisi and Batumi with wifi
There is some nice scenery out of the cities, but I need more details

Not EU, but any recent experiences for US citizen to enter Ukraine?

Highlight the word or phrase and click on add hyperlink (button underneath italics)
It's easier if you toggle the view first by pressing the mouse icon

Got it! Thanks!

That actually is quite funny because I am not familiar with

Have a few newbie questions, hope someone can help out:
a) Would like to rent a car in BUF and return in NYC area. When i try to make a reservation with that pick up and drop off, there;s no results. Can i just reserve BUF-BUF and then once i have the car, drop it off somewhere else? What are the repercussions?
b) Do they ever ask for proof of chabad/yeshiva codes?
c) Just renewed my license, have a interim ID and expired photo DL. Is that fine?
d) Do any of the above change with PC status?
e) How do i get an upgrade with PC? Reserve a mid size car and then take any car from the PC lanes? Do i need to go to the counter if it's my first time renting from this location?

Thanks in advance

Not sure if this is exotic enough, but I've done water zorbing in Prague, where you are put into a human sized "beach ball", they blow it up with air, then roll it onto the water and you have the opportunity to try to "walk on water".
(It's harder than you imagine)

What's the latest? Will a B6 flight for $99 trigger?

Aug 2-17 you will have minyan from KMR?
Looks like its possible to book the GH and KMR isn't taking the full hotel
I was planning to stay at this hotel even before i saw that kmr is being there. Do you think they would give issues joining their minyan if we are not taking part of the program?
