Would you go back in time and kill Hitler as a child? It would save millions of lives of those who perished in the holocaust, but would simultaneously eliminate millions of people alive today whose parents would never have met, likely including you. Of course if you donít exist you could never have travelled back in time to kill Hitler....

The story of the Alter Rebbe stopping the boat came up in regards to a shayla I asked about Kiddush Levana and I spoke about it during our Shabbos meal as a potential reason for the diversion which ensured we wouldn't make it to an area where there would be a question in what the Alter Rebbe might pasken.

@Something Fishy then informed me if I told the story one more time I would be fed to the penguins.

I am hereby resigning my post as mod.

No one is going to fill out a questionnaire for you here.

If you have a specific question about flight charters ask your question in one of the existing threads that discuss this topic.

One shita written in the article.
6 years weekday, and 1 whole year shabbos...
So interesting.

That's the Minchas Elezar's shita.

From the Moment it seems that they made sure to go at a time that they had a night of about 20 minutes. Some months there's no night at all making it more complicated halachacally...
Or did Innot read it correctly?

There was no night at all.

The 20 minute comment was that regarding sunset, all shitos came to within around 20 minutes of each other so it was easy to be machmir.

2. Depart 5:40p, giving me an additional solid half day and allows me to see all the sights (mostly; things like the Spanish Steps don't interest me). Return flight would be Norwegian B789 Premium bulkhead, $570pp. I don't expect to sleep a wink on that, but in all honesty with a 9:30p arrival in NY I'm not sure that's a bad thing.

...

Option 2 pros: More time in Rome, direct flight, nearly $900 cheaper.

Booked, and saved another $50pp by paying in NOK.

, though considering @Something Fishy is weird and hates all dairy, that's decidedly less of a draw.

The way the food is being hyped here, even this weirdo is looking forward to it  ;D.

2.
Better off not sleeping anyway as you noted. Plus that way you can do the big 3 and save money.

Yup. We've decided to go that route.
