Subject: Apartment in Jerusalem

My husband and I are looking to rent an apartment for the month of July
in Jerusalem.  We will be studying in Yeshivot in Bayit Vegan, but would
also be happy to consider anything elsewhere in the city.

Subject: Bols Kashruth

Recently there was a submission about the Kashruth guide from London.  My
reading of the submission was unclear and before I consume my bottle of
Bols advocat I wondered if someone who knows could advise me regarding any
published information about the kashruth status of the product. Thank You.

My inlaws are traveling to Hawaii next week, and I was wondering if
anybody could respond via email regarding jewish things of interest,
kosher facilities, etc. Also, if anybody has the longitude and latitude

|Subj: Kashrut of Triaminic Medicines
Joseph Greenberg in Vol. 11 #12 mentions the problem of glycerin in all
Robitussin cough/cold medicines.  He implies that all Triaminic products
are kosher since they do not contain glycerin.

Alas, some of them (at least Triaminic Expectorant) have another problem
ingredient, guaifenesin, an expectorant, which for some reason is not
kosher as normally produced.  That isn't so bad, though, since in my
opinion as a family physician bringing up phlegm can be accomplished as
well in most cases with lots of fluids and a vaporizer.  If necessary, a
prescription for an iodinated product can be obtained (check with your
Rav or the Baltimore Va'ad (410) 484-4110 for questions about specific
products or circumstances in which Sakanat Nefashot (endangerment to
life) may apply).  Also watch out for any liquids with a red dye, since
some of these contain an insect product, though most commonly used red
dyes, such as FD& C Red 40, do not.

For those old enough and able to swallow a pill, my understanding is
that that the kashrut requirements are more lenient, since swallowing a
pill is not eating.  But best to obtain a reliable list of permissible
medicines and ask a reliable person when in doubt.

Subject: Orthodox Shul near Oak Ridge TN

I would like to ask anyone if they know of any orthodox shuls near Oak
Ridge Tennessee.  Actually I have to be at a trucking company in Loudon,
TN which is 35 miles away.  I will probably have to stay for Shabbos,
and I would like to stay near a shul if possible. This worked out very
nicely when I had to work in Nashville a few weeks ago.

There have been discussion regarding various liquors.  There was a
newsletter put out last fall by the Kashrus Information Bureau, Emek
Hebrew Academy, 12732 Chandler Boulevard North Hollywood, CA 91607.
There is a listing of numerous recommended liquors and wines.
Incidentially Southern Comfort is NOT recommended.  Chivas is in the
acceptable list (though it says may be aged in sherry oak casks.).  The
phone number for KIB is 818-762-3197.  Rabbi Eidlitz runs the
