looking to buy nonslip talit gadol for 2 sons(15, 13) and talit katan for my 5 sons(4, 9, 11, 13, 15) will be mostly in Jerusalem

whats some of my best options where to buy looking for good prices
Walk around Geula in Jerusalem and price shop.
Mishkan Hatchelet has a few branches in that area alone. But prices are more or less the same throughout.

Factoring in price Evita or shallots if one had to choose?
Depends what you're in the mood for. It's like asking if you should get Chinese food or Italian food.
Evita is Argentinean. Shallots is a more traditional steakhouse  with creative options.

Thanks. Any experience with silver car there?
You get picked up in a silver car at your terminal, then they drive you to an offsite location to check out your car. Drop it off at the same place then they drive you to your terminal.

Recommended dishes?

Pastrami flatbread, empanadas, all the steaks.

The churro de helado is nice too. (Ice cream in a churro bowl)

What's the scoop on Evita?
Worth trying out or stick to Shallot's?
Definitely worth trying. Unique Argentinian food, incredibly flavorful meats. We stop there on every trip. Nothing against Shallots, but Evita is a good experience.

Planning a trip in April with a toddler, Wednesday-Monday.
In terms of where to stay- we have IHG certs, Radisson points (actually quite a few options in london), and marriott points/nights. Would prefer to stay in the same place.
Stay in GG/Hendon near kosher food? This way we will be close to breakfast and dinner, and can spend most of the day in the city. Points options are lackluster though, would prob stay at the HI express (meh).
Or stay in the city? Lots of nice options, we would be in the center of everything but seems like only Reubens in the vicinity?
Not really interested in selfridges counters etc....

What has worked for most?

MXP? BCN could also work on its own without the rest of Spain. Antwerp and Zurich  have food but not enough to do.

Assuming you don't want to fly to the Mediterranean as Greece could work also.

Any thoughts about Nice? Or too much anti semitism?
I don't mind flying to Greece, it's actually on the bucket list but we wouldn't stay in Athens - we would go to another island and that may be too much travel for a short add on.

Looking for somewhere to go in Europe for 3-4 days following a week in LHR. Good kosher food is a requirement.
(Been to CDG, VCE, FCO, AMS). Traveling with kids so nothing jam-packed (ie, not Spain- too many cities to hit so that will be a separate trip)

ETA: Ideally somewhere with less antisemitism. Although I guess that's not really possible now?

Flying alone. Worth ordering? I thought it may be too much of a hassle. It's always been my go-to when flying with family though.

4 PM flight out of EWR, terminal C.
Does anyone know the hours of the Kosher Market by CIBO? Anyone been recently?
Or does anyone know the general availability of prepackaged CIBO/fresko food? Don't want to get stuck without food.
