What does the Oilum do about washing for bread on a plane? Do you:

A) Don't wash at all. Do you skip the mezonos rolls as well?

B) Wash inside the bathroom and dry your hands outside

C) Wash and dry inside and make a brocha outside.

D) Ask the crew to wash in the sink. (Is this a Chillul Hashem?)

E) None of the above/Other

Option A, and Option E, which is: wash in the airport before takeoff

When it's not Mezones, I take a water bottle, wash in the bathroom with the door open, and dry outside

I'm doing plans for someone where he's building a new shul connected to his house and wants to use the space where the shul was until now for something else, first he wanted to put a Mikvah there, so I told him I believe there might be an issue with that so he asked me if he could make it into a simcha hall.
Looking for more info if and what you're allowed to replace a old shul with.
TIA

Was there any Tnai made when building/first using the current shul?

If yes, do we say the same for poison ivy?

Poison ivy isn’t 1) A tree, and isn’t 2) a fruit. Kinda rough to put it into the “fruit tree” category.

the point was that the virginia creeper has only poisenous berries and my (admittedly ignorant) self would guess that its not a problem

Second part discusses when the fruit is inedible but juice from it is

Palestinians ≠ Hamas

Question is if:
A) poisonous is different than something inedible for purely technical reasons such as containing insects.
B) Do these berries have any use at all?

Why you classify Virginia creeper as a tree, but not poison ivy?

ETA: Virginia creeper can be confused with poison ivy, especially when the leaves have not grown in fully.

I didn’t realize Virginia Creeper was similar to ivy as well. I would think it isn’t a problem to cut down too. Regardless, I picked on poison ivy cause my son just had poison ivy all over the place, so it’s not in my good books right now. Chop ‘m down!

They often grow together. This is great if you want to teach your kids what you avoid (although poison ivy usually avoids open areas): https://www.poison-ivy.org/poison-ivy-quiz

In either case, paging @Alexsei - what does the צוואה say?
