Interesting, that's a change from the past. Asked the Inbal about Shavuos and they had some C"S items.

Strange. Spoke to them pesach time

what kind of upgrade if any one can expect with diamond?
Got an email today that my room was upgraded from the standard room award to a King Grand Deluxe Room.
Diamond member.
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

AFAIK Rabbanut allows אבקת חלב נכרי and non CY butter and cheese.
That would still be noted on the product, from what I've seen.

No.
I was just answering to the question if there is any upgrade for diamond members these days.

From what I understand, the Plaza is better and is cheaper.
We just bought take out from Hadar Geula for friday night.
The WAJ is obscenely overpriced and all of the Friday night food was just bad. The Shabbos lunch food is also obscenely overpriced, but the food is better.

Anyone have a whatsapp number to make friday night reservations at the Plaza?
