Subject: Jews in Ecuador

Shalom MJniks,

My sister, a college student in California, will be spending her spring
semester in Ecuador.  She has asked me to find out about the Jewish
community there.  Shuls, kosher food, possible Shabbat meals, etc.
Please reply directly to me (or to the list if you so desire), if anyone
has any info that she would find helpful.  She will be at the university
in the capital (begins with a G!) :) Thanks in advance.

Subject: Kashrut in the Orlando area

We are planning a trip to Disney World. We would greatly appreciate any 
information and suggestions. Does anyone know of inexpensive rental 
accomodations nearby ?

World in v9n3. Mod.]

Thank you for your tips in advance.

Subject: Kosher/Javits Center

Can someone recommend a good place near (easy walking distance!) the
Javits Conference Center for a kosher lunch?  Preferably dairy, but
could be meat, if that's all there is.

Subject: Non-kosher MacDonalds

Najman Kahana correctly points out that MacD's are non-kosher in every
way of the word, even though they (have agreed to) use kosher "raw"
ingredients.  I never wanted to imply anything else.

However, to look at another company - Burger Ranch - which also has
non-kosher burgers all over Israel, but the stores are kosher (& closed
on Shabbat) in Jerusalem.

Subject: OU and Bishul Akum

   From: Michael Broyde <RELMB@...>

   While some (including this writer) accept the validy of certain
   kulot concerning pas and chalav yisrael which greatly reduce its
   application in America, such is not the case concerning bishul

I (and probably others on mj) would be interested in some more specific
details about the kulot employed by the OU in all 3 areas mentioned
(especially where they result in a problem for sephardim or chasidim),
as well as the corresponding views (chumrot / kulot) of the other major
organizations and / or poskim.

[Any of the Highland Park OT'ers who could print this out and give it to
Rabbi Luban to see if we can get an authoratative answer? Mod.]

Thank you,

Subject: Summer research in Israel

I don't know if mail-jewish is the right place for this, but I didn't
really know where else to turn.
I am currently an undergrad looking for summer research opportunities.
I would love to spend a summer in Israel, but aside from information
about Weizmann, I have very little to go on. My field is chemistry, but
any information you could provide would be helpful.

Subject: Trip to Israel

I am interested in visiting Israel for approximately 5 weeks starting
from the last week of December till the beginning of February.  I would
greatly appreciate if anyone could provide me with answers to the
following questions:

1. What are the cheapest and most reliable round-trip airfares from New
York City to Tel Aviv, and who is a good travel agent that can be

2. In the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv-Bnei Brak area, are there reasonable
accommodations (room, apartment, hotel, etc.) for room and board which
also have heated rooms?

3. Are there any touring/learning/fact-finding groups going to Israel
during the month of January?

4. Are there any yeshivas/learning centers that cater to the Y.U., Rav
Soloveitchik-style learning approach that one can learn in for a month
and find a chavrusa?  Or are there any organized semicha programs?

5. Are there any opportunities in teaching accounting or PC software
applications, or in working in these areas, or in technical writing?

6. Are there any places to meet, in a social setting, religious singles
in their thirties?
