Anyone know where I can catch a Rav Meilech Biderman shiur in Israël/Yerushalayim?  What places does he frequent and where might I be able to hear/see him?
I have exactly the same question about Rav Asher Weiss. ??

can someone recommend a mehadrin restaurant in Haifa or nearby?



Just saw this sorry :(

Depends on what you consider mehadrin....Ikea is probably the closest you will get as its Rubin, most other places here are rabanut mehadrin. There are milchig places that are Agudas Yisroel. There is one place in Kiryat Shmuel that is meat mehadrin and the mashgiach is somebody from the kehilla so everyone eats there.

To be honest I find the whole kashrus situation in Israel very confusing.
Ikea the furniture store? I am sure it's kosher but I hope to eat something other than chairs and bookshelves during my visit ;)

Looking to have Shabbos takeout food delivered to an Airbnb in Yerushalayim Friday. I know I've seen this sort of thing mentioned on the thread but can't find it.
