    I ask because I had this discussion with my wife where I took the position that the “third wheel” should be kept.

    Discussion or argument? Just saying.

    cshapiro- Sorry to barge in here but I thought I’d point out that the mitzva of shaloch manos is to give 2 servings of food not 2 types of food which is a wide held misunderstanding. So, if you give enough for 2 portions of waffles then you’re set!

    I usually just hang out here without being vocal but I gotta say that if I could nominate a favorite thread this would be it.

    It’s funny, doesn’t talk about divorce or Starbucks, and doesn’t shun Jews who think they are shomer shabbos when we know they aren’t.

    I used to work in a dr’s office in Eretz Yisroel that treated sem girls and unfortunately, the disorder is common both for girls and boys.

    If it hasn’t been noticed it’s because the students or hanhala don’t want to deal with the problem.

    It’s important to remember that the job market is quite open here in Israel but in order to work at a ‘legal’ job you will need to apply for a worker’s permit. I don’t know too much about them since I made aliya.

    If a person isn’t picky as to how much they expect from a paycheck there are plenty of English speaking jobs available.

    I’m jumping in without reading all the comments- don’t have enough patience-good thing I’m already married. : )

    My 2 cents say this, a girl or guy can be photogenic or not but it’s very hard to see a person’s ‘chen’ in a picture. Beauty most often is discovered through getting to a know a person and his ‘penimius’.

    I also recommend the Rimon Inn- it’s nice, has a rustic feel to it. The hechsher is Rabbanut but we spoke to the Mashgiach and he told us which meat/chicken is glatt and he told us that he maasers all the veg/fruit.

    I seem to remember that everyone in the hotel was Shomer Shabbos which is a plus.

    Also, they had a walking tour on Shabbos, another plus.

    I recommend Jerusalem Cuisine they do catering for both Shabbos Hagadol and Pesach-reasonable prices and nice variety of food.

    You can find them online but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to include the URL here which is their name in one word co.il or call them at 02-651-9821.

    tomim tihye- I’m a newtime baker so I was wondering if you could give amounts for the ingredients. It sounds like a great time saver to make a few cakes from one recipe, just not sure how to guestimate.

    Maybe, really skinny girls should be called whole wheat bagels?!?

    In fact, in my humble opinion, we should stop calling people by names and only use food recognizable names. Let’s face it, in our days, when middos have gone down the drain we shouldn’t even pretend anymore.

    So far, there are 37 comments related to who is a tuna bagel who isn’t and if a tuna bagel is a good thing or not! What happened to is he a baal middos? Will he treat his wife properly? Is she interested in putting in 150% of herself to make her marriage work and her husband happy???

    You should eat foods that are low glycemic index. You can find lists of such foods and the benefits by googling it.

    I am almost familiar with Kupat Ha’ir but unfortunately, I didn’t feel that most people want to hear the truth- they prefer to negate any good done.

    charitynavigator.org wouldn’t have any Israeli Kupat Ha’ir listed since I believe they track American charities not anything overseas.

    A600KiloBear- I’m sorry that you seemed to have been burnt from your Israel experience.

    I have found that if someone is looking for a legitimate job there are plenty of opportunities! Nobody says that moving to E”Y is easy but the opposite. The economic situation will never reach a high level- most people manage if they take a reality check and give up expectations to make an American salary in Israel. I don’t have first hand experience but I have doubts that those who live in Israel but have spouses to work in America are truly happy with the higher financial standard of living they are providing their families with.

    If a person(family) chooses to live in E”Y it must be a choice of giving up the gashmiyos of CHU”L for yes all of the benefits of living in Eretz Yisroel.

    There are so comments already on this subject but I wanted to add one more. This is related to I think what Mazal said regarding phone solicitations and fake organizations. It is very important to check on the reliability of any organization whether by phone by requesting a letter sent by mail or a meshulach at the door even if they say they represent a Yeshiva or other mossad that’s well known.

    For Israeli organizations you can check online with Olam Hatorah http://www.torahindex.com

    It’s hard to stress enough the importance of this verification.

    As far as I see giving tzedaka to Oorah you win whether you are chosen for one of the prizes or not. Unfortunately, due to the financial crisis chesed organizations around the world need to find new and exciting ways to get the attention of potential benefactors.

    May we see the end to this crisis very soon with the coming of Moshiach who we desperately need.

    I am married and don’t open the door if I’m home alone. I don’t feel comfortable not knowing who’s on the other side of the door. I answer that I’m not allowed to open the door and since my voice sounds young it’s assumed that I’m babysitting and they leave.
