THE OTHER PLACE WE ALWAYS GO TO IN ISRAEL

Silly- it’s DECKS, of course! How could we be in Israel and not eat at Decks? So we did what most Israelis would consider to be nuts. We left J’lem at 4:00pm and headed North. We got to Decks at 6:30, left at 8:45, and were back home in Rechavia by 11:15pm. Was it worth […]

THANKSGIVING IN EFRAT

We quickly discovered that most American ex-pats living in Israel celebrate Thanksgiving on Friday night. So, we set off for Efrat and had a most wonderful Thanksgiving Shabbat dinner at the home of Amy and Nat. Amy used to be a very successful caterer back in the States, and her kitchen is renowned for the […]

Readers of the Kosher Nexus as well as this blog know that when we are in Israel, there are two restaurants that we make sure to visit. One of them is in Jerusalem and is called Misadat Pinati. The place is about as small as a place can be and still call itself a restaurant […]

JOY RESTAURANT IN JERUSALEM

There are two restaurants called JOY. One is a regular restaurant and the other is more of a takeout place with about six tables and a counter. The second place is called Express Joy. We ate there last night, and it was super! No, it’s clearly not haute cuisine, but the food was excellent! One […]

DINNER AT RAGU

  Category: Restaurants Last night, we had dinner at Ragu- a newish restaurant in the German colony, located at 41 Beit Lechem Road, Jerusalem. The restaurant is quite tiny. In the summer, it is possible to eat outside making it much larger. However, last night the place was packed- every table was filled. At the table […]

MORE RUMINATIONS

  Category: General Topics Why do kosher bakeries charge such high prices? It can’t be the cost of hashgacha. Here in Queens, hashgacha is less than ten dollars a week, so it can’t be that. Could it be the cost of the raw materials? Nope! The truth is that the majority of bakery products sold in […]

APOLOGY

  Category: PHP-Nuke In programming articles for posting on this site, we got confused about the date. As a result, a posting will take place on Shabbat automatically. We do not, as a rule, have articles post on Shabbat, so we do apologize for the mistake. Keep in mind, however, the posting was done automatically.
