Very cool! Did landing and reboarding on a Wednesday raise halachic problems?
No, it's all the same journey.

@Dan no requests to get interviewed in Jewish magazines?
True friends are like diamonds, precious and rare. False friends are like leaves, found everywhere.

I've talked to several, stopped returning their phone calls after the first ones were full of fake news.

Seen in my Shul's shaimos box. Now I'm wondering which member of our small community went.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Not sure if I should be honored or insulted ;D.

Mind sharing which community you're part of?

Or it was the guy who didn't feel like having to explain to every shabbos guest that he spent $20k to go. I have nothing against going, but I can certainly understand why one would want to keep it quiet.

Why not? He's getting rid of the one piece of evidence that might very well end up on his shabbos table.

FWIW, I was at a shabbos table this week hosted by a guest on the cruise. She took out 8 such benchers, apparently collected from what others left behind on the ship.

We brought along over 100. Everyone got one in their gift bags, and then we put out the rest during the Shabbos meals. Most people took home a bunch.
