Drinks At The Ramada Tonight...
« on: May 20, 2010, 09:42:14 AM »
Yup, it's last minute, but a few guys wanted to get together for some drinks, so I figured why not!
If any of you Yerushalmies want to come we're meeting at the Ramada at 9-11pm.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

 where have U been the past 37 yrs?

 if U are ever in Israel for Pesach,Shavouth or Succos then we can hook up

 did U really think I was kidding U when I told you I do a nice six figure amount in actual miles every year? Unlike some people I know who showed me their wallet candy Im probably 1 of the few on DD that actually earns it (earned it) every year. thats why I constantly post that my Game and most peoples Game on this site arent the same game

eg just saw an email I got that announced SYD for $827 in Aug, so yep Cairns and Sydney here I come that is if UA has that fare, thats apx 22k EQMs the way I fly, and 44k RDMs almost enough to be able to come visit U again

About flying, I'm not flying so little.

Let's see the last 12 month:

Tyo

Bkk x6

Mel

Hnd

Tlv x12 (or 11, not sure)

Clt

Zrh +/-40

Phl

Icn

Hpn

Fra x2

Muc x2

Arl

Dfw x2

Hkg x2

That's as far as I recollect have overeaten 2 days shavuos, gone to sleep 2am, and woken up 5:15...

98 percent of the above were in first or biz.

I was there waiting since Eve Yom Tov but at last had to leave 12 hrs before it all started, had a flight to catch back to EWR Thuirs morn (turned out to be Thurs afternoon dealyed Inbound, which worked out great as that meant having to hang in the Term @ EWR for only 2 hrs instead of 4 hrs)
  I never realised that although you only keep one day in Israel, once you are in the US, you need to keep the 2nd day. Im not sure this comment belongs here, and I don't mean anything personal, but if you could please explain halachagly how you could fly on Thursday? You aren't Israeli, so technically you would need to keep 2 days in the US, but since you almost never missed a Yom Tov in Israel, I believe your LOR lets you keep one day in Israel. But that's all in Israel, but how can you enter American Airspace and land in the US and then carry muktza on Yom Tov? Did you clearly ask your LOR if you may do so. After all you aren't an Israeli.

 Once again I mean nothing personal at all, I'm just asking to learn.

Depending on different poskim, if you either spend every yom tov in israel, or have an apartment there, you can keep 1 day.
Lubavitcher keep 1 day if they are in israel.

Arriving in an airport, shouldn't be a problem, as long as you don't enter town, however, NYC might be a problem as you have jewish customs, and so on.

 Its very simple really, say you are in China and run afoul of the law you somehow get to the US Embassy.theres nothing the Chinese can do since its US Territory.

thusly no problem going to TLV nor flying, once you arrive at the Airport over here you arent in say NJ but in a Country called EWR and can even continue flying to another State or simply hang at the Term and buy what you please and use your phone (like you really will have anyone to call on YT). so as long as you remain in the term or even an airport Hotel you can do as you please. If a person leaves that domain then what U said would be the case and they wouldnt be able to do any Molacha, according to some others allow it.

BTW if you fly into a place where they are no Jews living theres no problem going into the city and doing as you please. everything is due to Morris and Morris only

 MY LOR lets me fly back on the 2nd day and do everything I posted above, w/o a 2nd thought.So did my R"H back in Israel I dont do anything that I  didnt ask about beforehand

 There were plenty of Frum people on my flight and Americans at that, the family that was sitting in the rows ahead of me have an apt over there although they live over here.

 Let me state this, no one should take what I posted as giving them permission to hold 1 day and fly on the 2nd day YT. As I have posted before each person MUST discuss their own situation with their LOR and believe me there are alot of different opinions as to what you can and cant do, and where you can do it

 personally I speak to a Yeshivaish Rav both here and in Israel. and I do it almost every YT since the circumstances are always different as to what I can and cant do once over here.

1 time I flew in and not into NY so I had 2 more connecting flights, was told no problem whatsoever

 again keep in mind most everything is due to Morris. and if I had left last night instead of this morning then I would have had to put on tefillin over here! depending on what Iw as up to if I was gonna be flying around and not be at a Hoetl then I would ahve to put them on at an airport somewhere. If I was gonna be checking into a Hotel due to the earliness of my arrival then I could do it in the room

 this isnt something that should be taken lightly

Maybe, you should post the contact info of your rabbi.

He seems pretty cool.

Wow wow,

It didn't sound mean, and he repeated that he is just inquiring.
