If you couldn't read the title and decided to just click it.



For easy reference, here’s Wikipedia’s list of airport codes. The list is too long for one article, so you have to click on the letter that the code begins with to get a list of airports that start with that letter.

Does this count as משיח לפי תומו?

Also does "כשרות מהדרין" include the two Hechsherim involved in the "Poland cheese fiasco"?

Because most DDFers won't give a hoot if Dan eats from the Pope's hashgacha in Rome. But if he eats from the Zionist Rabanut...  >:(

depends what you call politicized. Boston? Many eat at restaurants that a major Kashrus agency spent significant amount of time at and couldn't recommend

Details?
Either way, that's a one-off versus an entire country of little to no consensus on what is equal to mainstream US hashgocha.

Also notice that this is not signed by anyone! Who is vouching for this? It is separate and distinct from the Kashrus certificate which is signed and has no mention of such.

Which just shows (as I have claimed many times) that the term "Mehadrin" is meaningless. Does Rubin accept them?

Because there's such a huge market, and so many gullible people that will just go for the "Mehadrin" label without thinking or questioning what it means.

Add to that Hechsherim that were started for pure political/power reasons (such as the both  Hechsherim involved in the Poland cheese fiasco), and you have a recipe for things going downhill.

Details?
Either way, that's a one-off versus an entire country of little to no consensus on what is equal to mainstream US hashgocha.

How do you define "mainstream US Hashgocho"? Would it be from organizations that exist and have a purpose other than just Kashrus? Such as the OU? cRc? (Or other reputable local vaadim such as S. Louis, Denver, Detroit, etc.) Or is it about size and experience (which add Kof-K and OK to the list).

And is the approach "everything in Israel is so politicized and controversial, so I'll just accept them all"? (Which is one of the problems with the Rabanut Mehuderet or Mehadrin, and some others, who will almost blindly accept anything that says badatz or Mehadrin).

Now that this thread is about the lounges, how do you get into the kdl as opposed to the Dan?

Ty

with pressure to the airport (or whoever runs the lounge) maybe they could do the same at the Dan, or one of them, there are surely enough customers who care about it.
