    YES! It is incredible, too. Their wine is usually between $4-$6 a bottle. A lot of it is eino mebushal, though. SaraBee Moscato, Terrenal Argentinian Cabernet Sauvignon, and Terrenal Tempranillo (a Spanish rich red).

    They’re not earth-shattering, razzle-dazzle wines, but they are enjoyable and are a great buy.

    I generally prefer sweeter wines for drinking and dry wines for cooking.


    jfem, cutting a beard with a scissor might be an issue depending on how you scissor. You might want to CYLOR to find out.


    Trader Joe’s does have one or two brands of cheap wines (about $6), both dry and sweet. They’re mixed in with the treif wines, so you have to look carefully. I think the moscato is called something like “Bella Bee.”


    The Far Rockaway men’s mikvah charges $2, $1 if you bring your own towel. It’s more expensive on erev Yom Tov. Oops, maybe I shouldn’t have said anything. Now we’re going to have an influx of people from the UWS.

    I’ve lived out of town (in an expensive east coast city) and in town (including a brief time in the heilige Flatbush). I have never had a problem with employers. The only reason we came back to the NYC area was alluded to by jewishfeminist02. In New York, the school district will allow district-paid therapists and paraprofessionals in religious schools. This is not true of many other places. As regards frum special education programs, the several I’ve experienced as a parent and an educator have been sorely lacking.
