You need a real semicha certificate. It also needs official notarized transalation. And you need a letter from religous institution stating how much time you spend per day/week administrating religious services. It needs to be a good part of the day too. And it must be specific about what you do.


You need an actual certificate? In that case many rabbeim wouldn’t qualify because they are rabbis without an official semicha.

are you able to get a break if you have a regular minyan in your house and make a nonprofit? like a friday night minyan? seems to be lots of these and i wonder whether this is part of the reason (and if i can take advantage of it :))

lol...there are reviews scattered in other threads.


I went. Was really good. Ambiance is amazing and service is top notch. I would highly recommend a reservation because it gets full every night. We left at 9 and people were still waiting to be seated.
We started with pulled beef tacos. While really good, I think the whole pulled beef taco craze is overdone. They had pickled onions on theirs which was nice touch.
We split the tomahawk rib eye for 2. was phenomenal! I was picking some of the crispy parts off the bone and the waiter told me to just pick it up and dive right in. Everyone does  ;D
For dessert we got the donuts which were excellent as well. We really likes the custard sauce.
Best part was, we had a Manhattan experience and were home 6 minutes later.
