Can you recommend someone who can do a small moving job of a refrigerator from one part of Far Rockaway to another?

Same question for future trip. Any helpful ideas?

Will there a simulcast available online, and, if so, where?

In Madrid, there is Pinati Restaurant, and another nearby, a few blocks from each other and close to the heavily guarded shul, where you will need a passport to enter. The Prado Museum is amazing if you appreciate art. Shlomo Hanoka gave us a great day tour from Madrid to Toledo, highlighting the Jewish history in a very meaningful way.

Safety in any City may be a matter of common sense, there are good and bad neighborhoods everywhere, and obviously safer times of day to walk around. Nowadays, unfortunately, it would be safer not to flaunt Jewish identity in unfamiliar areas. Neither City is Boro Park or Yerushalyim.

My wife and daughter are doing a trip in May. What is a safe and enjoyable neighborhood for them to book a hotel?

How do i find more info on Bull fighting?

And any must see attractions? I read in this thread that one old shul is just an empty room. She has 3 days, and yes, one day will be with a guide( as it is expensive) so i am looking for other things for her to do that she can do on her own.

Which City? If Barcelona, which I assume from your reference to the old Shul, I recommend Gaudi's colorful Parc Guell as well as La Pedera, a/k/a Casa Mila. The latter was very interesting, I recommend you take the audio tour which starts with an elevator ride to the roof, one of the main attractions, and then walks you down. We enjoyed walking around Barcelona, not so much La Rambla, which is a bit too Times Square touristy, but rather the Passieg de Garcia and nearby streets. We stayed at the Le Meridien right off La Rambla, which was very nice, and we ate at the nearby Restaurant Maccabi, an excellent restaurant with great food, and also took out from Shaq Shuq a few blocks away.

Can anyone make a recommendation for a tour guide for Jewish Madrid and Toledo.  I have identified two Asher Bentolila and Shlomo Hanoka and the information about them is odd because they seem to be operating off of the same website.

Thank you!
We used Shlomo Hanoka and he was excellent.

Trying to decide between Reserve Cut or Wall Street Grill for dinner. Which would you recommend and why?

Formerly known as  Gates of Zion/ Valley Stream Jewish Center.

Old ballroom was pretty dated and not that large either.  I wonder what they did to it.

- an Orthodox bucharian shul bought this former Conservative Synagogue
