If i need to order turkey rolls in bulk.  Like 50 pounds worth,  where is the best place to order?  In yerushalayim or kfar chabad.  And this is for tom, so a place that would have it in stock
Thanks

Shaikevitz in Kfar Chabad should have whatever you need in stock.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Anyone know how I can get the schedule of Shacharis minyanim at Kever Rochel for a Wednesday morning? 

I found a website that says shacharis is at 40 minutes before sunrise, but presumably that's for the first minyan and that there are several subsequent minyanim after that.

Hard to know what criteria you have, but Ein Bokek is completely seperate and a beautiful beach. It's just past the Herods hotel.

It's more like whenever theres 10 people they make another Minyan I don't think it's anything official.
  Also IINM I heard that theres an inyan to learn and say tihillim by a kever but shouldn't daven there,anyone ever heard of such a concept?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

What about if I upgrade to the Kosher 79 Shekel plan? Doesn't say the same rule in the red letters.
Spoke to a rep was told the 79 kosher plan did not have these limitations.
And that a upgrade would be treated as a new plan.

You could go to einit on the corner of hanivim & yeshayahu. There's a good dr. And good options for glasses but they're not cheap
