I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Feh! Hei Teves! Nothing with less than a 40% alcohol content should be allowed.

It was.
Not to make a big deal about an issue nothing to do with the trip but
Huh? They were on the boat already this past M"S?
I actaully saw people doing Kiddush Levnah tonight in J-lem. Confused since I thought you're supposed to do it on M"S. Is their something with Teves that you do it before?

In the winter people tend to do it earlier.

Bummer. No IG stories from either of them.

What’s up (down) with the elevation?


Ketchup?

I'd never expected that kind of blasphemy from such food aficionados!

Though I wouldn't mind some of that PATRÓN (or is that something else?). And those shot cups are absolutely Hei Teves appropriate.   ;D
