Does the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem have weekday minyanim and, if not, then where is the closest place to find a minyan?

I see on GoDaven.com that the closest alternative seems to be at 10 King David Street, Sefardi daily minyan at 7:30 am. Does any one know if that is still correct or other nearby choices?

I have been here for the last few days and there seems to be a Minyan everyday at around 8..

While you are free to do as you please, there is no reason to knock those that are makpid on eating food with a hechsher

You are right . Wasnt looking to knock.

Is it such a terrible thing to not buy from people who are in the business of selling food because they don't have a hechsher?

No

What's this about? Did he say something wrong, incorrect, scandalous or hurtful?
Was a quick reaction. Said nothing wrong or incorrect (except that i think its not most that do have a hechsher). The reaction just coming from a place where i personally know at least 6 of these catering services wouldn't be חושש for a second. However my reaction is coming from peraonally knowing them so the above comment is very true . Even as an american tourist coming to israel, you cant assume that all these services are top knotch hechsher-wise. I retract my comment/reaction.

Almost nothing, to lose a little. The import tax on phones was repealed a few months ago.

Meuchedet offers "C" for 14 shek a month per child up to the third child, after that free.  What's the catch? What's in it for them?

Just arrived at TLV but suitcase didn't make it. CC insurance will cover some replacements for Shabbos -  but any suggestions as to a place in Yerushalayim to get a proper suit on short short notice?

What is the hechsher on the candy from pyup (and why don't they put it on the box)?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
