Breakfast:
Paying guests get breakfast for free. If you are staying on points you need to be gold or diamond to get free breakfast. (source)

Parking:
Complimentary (No longer, is now 60sh for self park - Drago)

Shuls Nearby:
Great Synagogue - Approx. 7 minute walk
Kotel around 15min walk thru the mall & arab Shuk (Only suggested when soldiers are present like friday night on the way home)

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast (Hechsher, Early flight, etc') please PM shimino1

It is at least 15 years since I really went over them well, but the way I understood them was that they are not the same opinion. I had a bunch of nafka minas between them. I would need to look back in my notes.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Its pretty certain in today's day in age that the the milk is cow's milk. Anybody who tells you otherwise is a fool. With lab testing and other means (aside from the fact that cholov tamei is def not readily available and more expensive) the fallout for a company who'd be caught would be disastrous.

Now this might not be enough to be matir but definitely worth keeping in mind.


I heard from someone who heard directly from R' Pinchas Scheinberg that on top of R' Moshes reasoning, Kol Shekein nowadays when this svara applies.

ETA: assuming this was still many years ago so take the word nowadays with a grain of salt...

I was responding to someone that was saying it's ironic that people here are choosing to trust this government agency

I think DDF is predominantly a Beis Medrash. Once in while we have brief conversations about צורך השעה.

See what a chashuve Mashgiach WAJ has; he generated 320 pages of Halachic discussion. If he would allow another hashgacha in the kitchen, it would be all of 4 posts.  :P
