Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Cleveland Master Thread

See Wiki?
Yes, I will elaborate a tad.
I will start with hotel.
I see that the Cuyahoga falls Sheraton is "highly regarded" but it does seem to be a bit of a drive from the heights (depending on our itinerary that may be an issue). Is there anything else with suites for a family?

Thinking of making a pit stop in Cleveland tomorrow (and next day?). I have 60K SPG and 2 free nights. What would be best place to stay (with 5 kids). Also, any kid friendly not $$$$$ activity recommended in the area?

ALOR but IIRC my rav said yes. He also said that R Shlomo Zalman said that a bechor can join a siyum (with a minyan) over the phone.
Not sure where you got the minyan part, but regardless it is definitely better to make your own Siyum (veven according to RSZ).

From the Star-K website:

Indeed some treat gebrokt as Chometz mamash but I don't I don't burn gebrokts on Pesach nor do I kasher my pots after making knaidlach on the last day. I go thtis Psak from a Rav.

mishna berura addresses this unless you mean cleaning on leil יד?
Nope. See below. Also, I heard that when he did Bedika he would ask his family if this drawer was cleaned, if the answer was yes then he would move on to the next drawer and ask and so on.

do you have the source? The mechaber clearly writes that you have to be bodek , even if you have already cleaned. תלג:יא
שלמי מועד page שיא I will rephrase what I said, it seems like he is assuming/asserting that the cleaning is also including a bedika that the person makes sure that there is no Chametz there.

Three things:
1-The kitchen takes longer than you think. Leave yourself plenty of time to kasher and cover AFTER the cleaning is all done.
2-Preparing for the seder also takes time.
3-Don't forget that everyone needs to eat on Erev Pesach. Some ideas: vegetable soup, potato knishes, fried hamburgers and yapchik.

For the record, you are allowed to eat kneidlach on erev pesach! and believe it or not, they are not Chametz! Although whose of us who are makpid on gebrokts (myself included) would need a pot to cook it in.

[/size]I tell my wife there is no concept in halacha of "cleaning" for Pesach, only searching for chametz. Cleaning is only necessary in places that might come in contact with food on Pesach, and to the extent cleaning is necessary to make searching possible.Agree?
You need to search for Chometz wherever there may be chometz in the house. According to Reb Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, once you cleaned you do not need bedika (probably because it is now considered בדוק). So technically you are right that only the kitchen and eating areas need cleaning. But if you don't clean your closets etc, you MUST do a bedika thoroughly especially if you have young children in th house.

Seems like I will probably just cancel and rebook on my own,  figuring out the options. Probably cheaper this way.
