I called to confirm - Produce is Heter Mechirah.

That's very interesting. Because if you go to the rabbanut website https://www.baitisraeli.co.il/%D7%9B%D7%A9%D7%A8%D7%95%D7%AA/
and you click at the pdf link near the bottom https://www.baitisraeli.co.il/uploads/n/1659009082.4603.pdf, you'll see in that list that the rabbanut thinks the restaurant (line #48) does not use heter mechirah.

I just went through this myself. See here: https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=131387.0

They let us through without blinking an eye. That being said, she was 4.5 years old and we still had 5.5 months on our passport. American Airlines.

I'm flying American airlines that leaves at 12:45 a.m. to JFK. Check out at my hotel is at 11:00 a.m., how soon can I check in my bags at Ben-Gurion Airport for the flight? I was going to take the train to the airport, check my bags, and then go visit with family in Modiin.
