How is regular pizza unique?
Have plenty of pizza in CLE. Don't have Kravings, Prime 10, etc style places.
Issis and Kinnerets pizza are made very similar to every other kosher pizza shop in the world.
Jerusalem pizza is very unique, itís smaller pies that are fried in a deep pan through a conveyer belt oven, and the dough actually tastes good.

Video is circulating on WhatsApp and another one of someone trying to calm her down, while a male (possibly her husband) is agreeing that her behavior is not OK, but it is also not OK to serve him kitniyot.

My guess is that the excessive reaction is related to Sholom Bayis arguments over participating in the program.

However, this fiasco just goes to show what is pretty obvious, that the vast majority of people participating in these programs donít have Kashrus on top of their priority list. Itís more like a checkbox item.
Why are you jumping to conclusions?

Lunchtime 3 hour connection in DTW.
Worth going to any Jerusalem Pizza, Prime 10, Wok In Cari Out, or?
Definitely Jerusalem Pizza. Call in your order b4 cuz it can take some time. They pan fry their pizzas through a conveyer belt oven. I may be a little biased, but itís my favorite pizza as their crust doesnít taste like cardboard like most pizza shops. They have pretty good calzones too. Donít miss their BBQ pizza, cheese sticks and Jerusalem bread IMHO.

Exactly. Crazy that new shutdowns seemingly happen every year.
I'm enjoying Pesach at home. A basement Pesach kitchen was a small investment compared to these programs.
Other bonuses include being able to go to Fun N stuff and Tribe games on chol hamoed  :)

On a somewhat related note, is it currently ďassurĒ to go to a blue claws game? Meaning will going to a game get your kids kicked out of school?

So they adapted, and brought a bit more oversight, but also more warmth. They made changes as needed, and with it more connection with rabbeim. If you're someone who wants to build a real connection with a rebbe, the Mir is unparalleled. The rabbeim will stay in touch with you, and will guide you through life years and years later, regardless of the size of your donations.

What?
What did you say?
"If you're someone who wants to build a real connection with a rebbe, the Mir is unparalleled."

Rabbi Elefant, Rabbi Resnick, Rabbi Wagshal all have shiurim between 50-100 guys, closer to the higher end.
With a shiur that size, it just isn't possible to have a deep connection to each talmud, especially if every year or two its a whole new crop.
Bigger isn't better when it comes to education.

רבי אלעזר בן עזריה?
But you donít have to go back to the days of רבן גמליאל.
Study the history of any yeshiva from volohzin and on or any chasiddus. A new leader leads in his own derech. That is the way it has always been.
Let me be clear: every new leader can pick his own derech. But this post isnít directed at the Mir leadership. Itís directed to those that havenít realized that itís a new leader and new derech. Not a continuation of any legacy.

Whatís your goal. To pressure the powers that be to go back to the old ways? Itís their yeshiva now. Get used to it. All yeshivas undergo change. The Chaim Berlin I went to wasnít Rav Hutners. Rav Shneurs BMG was very different than Rav Aharons. And the Mir has had very different leadership and mashgichim over the last 200 years. Thatís the way it goes. 40 years from now I guarantee it will not look anything like today.

You could start this thread for many other organizations and mosdos. Time for you to move on and accept the Mir for what it is m, not for what it was 20 years ago.
Youíre right all yeshivos change.

Here is different.
They run around talking about how R Nosson Tzvi was so warm, tried to build a kesher with each talmud,cared about each one Talmud like it was his kid, had an open door, and gave everyone a chance.
Weíre continuing his legacy....
