Credit Cards / Re: Misc Credit Card Questions

Does it look bad (to Amex's new system of denying bonuses based on # of cards opened/closed) if I close an Amex card a few weeks after opening? I've applied for 1 too many in 90 days and I want the one I just applied for and they offered to approve it if I close one of the other new ones.

Arriviing in Toronto Friday afternoon, staying in a hotel Downtown.  What's the closest place to get takeout for Shabbos?
I think the only places that sell a full selection of takeout for shabbos are Kosher Gourmet, Savour Fresh Market, Toronto Kosher, and Ely's Fine Foods. All will be a minimum of a half hour drive each way from downtown on Friday afternoon. I don't know what time they each close.

Call those places first because aside from savours and maybe kosher gourmet some of them might not have things like challah if you're looking for a full shabbos. (Maybe Ely's too, never been there...)

If you don't want to do the drive, I think kosher gourmet is on doordash, just check with them that they do doordash orders on friday afternoon.

If you're really stuck, I think Anshei Minsk might have shabbos meals, if you're staying near there. Def would be an experience (they get a diverse and sometimes funny crowd) and might not have tons of food, but maybe as a backup.....

"Due to the uproar, one plane landed in Athens, where the ultra-Orthodox passengers disembarked to spend Shabbat before continuing on their way to Israel."

"On the second plane, the El Al flight was going to divert to Rome following protests from ultra-Orthodox passengers who did not want to violate Shabbat...."

Sounds like they think El Al is fine flying on shabbos.

Which flight is landing in FCO?
LY2 landed in TLV moments ago
LY2 probably landed in Athens a few moments ago.

LY8 is going to FCO.

those who are flying next week with LY should be prepared to major delays, specially on Motzei Shabbos, since 2 planes are stuck in Europe.
I'm not sure they'll be stuck in Europe. When this happened in June they flew the plane back to TLV on shabbos with just crew and no passengers. They just can't fly passengers on shabbos.

Bechadrei is reporting that:

LY2 is diverting to Athens, landing at 2:45 pm with shabbos starting at 4:50 pm (instead of landing in TLV a half hour before shkiah). Approx 70 frum jews on board, many who switched from LY8. El Al has secured hotel rooms, and Rabbi Hendel of Chabad Athens is getting shabbos food and a sefer torah to the hotel. (What a chessed! No easy feat!)

LY8 is diverting to Rome, landing 3:00 pm, shabbos at 4:30. It's unknown how many frum jews are on that flight, most who were originally on it switched to LY2.

Forgot to use a referral code for a higher signup bonus on an amex. Any chance that they'll match the offer if I ask?

Best place to get silver candlesticks and Kiddush cup In Yerushalayim?
Somewhere like Bnei Brak is ok if it's much better.
Idk if this helps you but I was recently shopping for a particular candlestick and went to 3 of the smaller stores in Meah Shearim/Geula and all were within 3% of each other. One was willing to take off 10% if paid with cash, but basically it seems like the prices are pretty similar at all of them....

After I bought, I heard there's a guy in a basement in Sanhedria Murchevet who has good prices. If you want his address, lmk.
