Credit Cards / Citi closed my card

Quote from: Citi SM
Dear Valued Customer:

We appreciate the opportunity to assist you.

Our records indicate this account was closed at the bank's discretion.

I can think of a few reasons for this. This was a citi amex card that was part of a 2bm (that I did for a friend), interestingly the 2bm consisted of a visa and amex but somehow they ended up with 2 amexs instead. Almost immediately both cards had fraud alerts on them and had big issues reinstating them (the phone number on the account was an American number on an Israeli phone, meaning they receive the call when you call the US # but when they call out it shows their Israeli caller ID). It took a bunch of calls until they finally agreed to reinstate them, and now one of them was cancelled.

Does anyone know someone that's coming from Lakewood to Brooklyn before Pesach that could bring a stroller?

Or going from Brooklyn to Lakewood Thur. or Fri. that could bring a small package there?

Tapestry of Jewish Life: Jerusalem Welcomes New, Niche-Driven Yeshivot

Ariel Levinson looked around his native Jerusalem and wondered with sadness whether there would be any secular youth left. With ultra-Orthodoxy tightening its hold over the city, and brighter, more attractive lights beckoning from cities like Tel Aviv or abroad, what could this ancient and holy city Levinson loved so much offer its non-religious youth to convince them to stay and make it their own?

“We decided to create a new group to lead this change,” said Levinson, a lecturer and PhD candidate in Modern Hebrew Literature at Hebrew University. So Levinson and two other educators created the Jerusalem Secular Yeshiva, a cultural center where young Israelis can re-connect to their Jewish heritage and tradition.  Link to full article.

And here is a link to the "yeshiva's" website

All I can say is huh?!?!

Tech Talk / Sprint service
« on: October 16, 2011, 07:03:13 PM »
One line on our account recently stopped finding service. No matter what phone the number is switched to that line loses service and cannot make or receive calls or texts. All the other lines on the account are working without any problems.
Clocking in at over 6 hours on the the phone with sprint's wonderful cs, and still without any definite solution.
Anyone encounter an issue like this before?
