Guess there was a reason the ticket was so cheap 😉November 10, 2011 5:52 am at 5:52 am #825298Yoin from BPMember
Chances are that he will meet people on the flight that are going to Antwerp (45 mins)who can:
a) Show him the hourly bus to Antwerp and return;
b) give him a ride.
Antwerp has late Shachris minyonim, kosher supermarkets and restaurants. In November, sunrise is around 8 AM!. Can’t daven much earlier than that.
He can visit the bourse (diamond exchange). If it pulls him, he can see the well-known Rebbe, Reb Leibush.
The kever of Reb Itzikel Zatzal is not too far away. Maybe his new-found friends will hire a taxi together and be misspallel at that mokom kodesh.
One thing for sure: he can use his time well if he has the inclination. (In Brussels, there are guided tours; but mostly churches etc.).
BRU airport has a shul.
I would love to hear how it worked out. It may help other people.November 10, 2011 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #825299

If you can trust your husband to travel by all by himself to Israel, you can probably trust him to find a Kosher Restaurant in Antwerp! (The restaurants with Arab lettering are probably not recommended, even though the owners have beards and the women are covered up).November 10, 2011 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #825303bptParticipant
Use your time in Belgium wisely.. BUY CHOCOLATE!November 10, 2011 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #825304soliekMember
“POSTED 18 HOURS AGO”
id say the point is now mootNovember 10, 2011 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #825305bptParticipant
Moot? Maybe with all the great ideas, the trip was extended. Not only that, Mrs is flying out for the weekend.
I mean, chocolate….November 11, 2011 1:47 am at 1:47 am #825306
Not moot. This is all happening next week so keep the suggestions coming. To Yoin, he is capable but I feel bad because I bought the ticket and misunderstood when I bought it. I thought the stopover was only 4 hours.
