You can also check local hospitals and local community colleges as well to see if they run courses
Training calendar for the Hudson Valley.

If you look at some of the options, you can get an idea of the different options for scheduling.

If you are doing a course that isn't targeted at frum people, you'll have to make sure that they will work with you regarding Shabbos/Yom tov. Most will if they can (within reason).

If anyone has the book mentioned in the interview stating that R Shach requested cooperation from the Rebbe, kindly post an image of the quote from the book.

It's page 221-226 for anyone looking. (I'm in a seforim store, so I'm not going to start taking pictures...)

You want to see the real cowards. Look in the mirror along with your supporters who refuse do anything!!!  >:( >:( >:(

Today’s shooting in El Paso, Texas was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice. I know that I stand with everyone in this Country to condemn today’s hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people….

I am staying in a hotel on shabbos with little kids we are on the 25 floor. Do i need to stay in the room the whole time? Can i ask a guy to push elevator button for me?

The problem with an elevator on Shabbos is not just opening the door. Your weight impacts the amount of energy used to lower the elevator.

Shabbos elevators are specifically designed to avoid this shaylo

Not surprising:

5. I thought I could choose $125 instead of free credit monitoring. What happened?

The public response to the settlement has been overwhelming. Millions of people have visited this site in just the first week. Because the total amount available for these alternative payments is $31 million, each person who takes the money option is going to get a very small amount. Nowhere near the $125 they could have gotten if there hadn’t been such an enormous number of claims filed.

The free credit monitoring provides a much better value, and everyone whose information was exposed can take advantage of it. If your information was exposed in the data breach, and you file a valid claim before the deadline, you are guaranteed at least four years of free monitoring at all three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) and $1,000,000 of identity theft insurance, among other benefits. The market value of this product is hundreds of dollars per year.

You can still choose the cash option on the claim form, but you will be disappointed with the amount you receive and you won’t get the free credit monitoring.

6. I want to change my claim to get free credit monitoring instead of a cash payment. Can I do that?
Yes. The settlement administrator will be sending an email to people who already submitted a claim for the alternative cash payment. In that email, you will have the option to:

1) provide additional information OR

2) switch to free credit monitoring.

What does "1) provide additional information" mean?

There have been ebbs and flows over the past decades, and eventually they end up buying competitors.

You've been buying wine for a lot longer than I have, but it seems different now. The world is so much smaller, that they would have to buy not just all of the American competition, but anyone who makes kosher wine worldwide.

10-15 years ago they got exclusive US distribution rights to a new winery in Europe, and put them out of business by not bringing any to America. I don't think they could do that today.

even before that, they were taking over other wine labels (and importers IINM) that started to gain a foothold in the market (Rashi, Kesser, etc.).

In the past 5 years their 100% control of the wine business has been slipping a bit.

I don't think you are being realistic.

See for example:

That actually proves his point. Zehut and Otzma are pulling 2.5% which is 3 seats. That puts the right/chareidim at 60

ETA: I should have looked past the second page ..

I remember in the 1990s when the then owner of Hadar (the name of the corporation slips my mind at the moment, but that was the main brand name under which products were marketed) decided to get into the wine business as retaliation for the Herzogs getting into his lines of business. Well, we know where that ended.

I thought it was the other way around. Hadar got into wine, so they went into food.


Those hoping to cash in on the massive Equifax settlement might be out of luck, thanks to AOC.

Can someone explain why it's "Thanks to AOC"?

Not sure how you can use tourist attraction and Auschwitz in the same sentence.

Right. But when they have a hot dog vendor in the ticket booth, they are making it that.

Not a single person even muttered a hint of a "כאלה" where I davened.

That's because the type of people that would do it are the same type of people that don't know that it's in Parshas Pinchas...
