Subject: Administrivia - Kosher Places Issues

It seems to me (and others as well based on mail I have received) that
the requests for kosher/jewish place information continues to grow. I
think that we need a better way to handle this type of information.
There is some information that is being kept on the Jerusalem1 system,
but I don't think it is accessible by email request. If I am wrong please
correct me. I am trying to get in touch with the person running it
there. In the meantime, we may want to consider setting up the
information here at Nysernet is a well documented format so people can
access it, help update it etc. We would need someone with telnet access
who would like to help manage that. I will recontact the person who
volunteered some ages ago, and see if she is still interested. If anyone
else is, please get in touch with me.

I would propose that for the near future, short  kosher/jewish place
information requests will continue to be accepted for mail-jewish, but
would go out with a distinctive Subject line and not be included in the
current volume/number numbering scheme. Responses to such requests
should go to the individual who has made the request, not to
mail-jewish. The individual who makes the request should collect the
information received and forward it to the kosher/jewish place
co-ordinator, who will add it to the archive database. People in places
can also put together place information files and forward it to the
co-ordinator for inclusion in the archive area. On a regular basis, a
list of the new and updated information files will be posted to

Subject: Help:Pesach in Italy

I am a medical scientist, working at the South African Institute for Medical
Research in Johannesburg, SA, and will be attending a workshop in Italy in
March '94! Being frum, I need to find out the following information:
1) Is kosher food readily available? The workshop will be held in Sestri
Levante, 40km from Genoa.
2) Is there a kosher caterer in the area such that the workshop organisers
could contact them?
3) Any ideas for accomodation for one Shabbat (18-19 March) and for the first
two days of Pesach? Anywhere in Italy is fine.
Any suggestions or contacts would be most appreciated!
Please reply to me directly.

Subject: Kashrut in Dearborn

Harry Koslovsky wrote in asking about Kashrut in Dearborn. Dearborn, the 
heart of the Detroit Arab communty, is about fifteen-twenty minutes by 
car from Southfield/Oak Park, the center of the Jewish communty in Metro 
Detroit. Sara's Deli, a glatt kosher restarant under the HAshgacha of 
the Vaad HaRAbbanim of Greater Detroit, is on Greenfield Road in 
Southfield; UniqueKosher Catering (or something like that) is a Glatt 
take out place across the street in Oak Park. New York Pizza World, a (I 
believe Cholov Yisrael) "pizza place" is around the corner on Lincoln

Subject: Kosher in Coronado Island, San Diego CA

Our company is holding its international user conference at the Meridien 
Hotel on Coronado Island near San Diego, California 10-13 April.

If anyone knows the area, I would be interested to hear of any shuls or 
kosher facilities that are available nearby (is anything?).  Are there any 
catering companies which will supply pre-packed meals?  Also, what are the 
'reliable' kosher symbols for that part of the USA?  Any information or 
local contacts would be welcome.  Thanks!

Subject: Kosher in San Francisco

For those travelling to San Francisco, seeking a Kosher restaurant,
please beware!  There is a Kosher establishment under Hashgacha (its
called Lotus Garden, I think).

HOWEVER, not all items in that restaurant are Kosher!  Apparently,
food prepared on premises are fine, however, the restaurant may bring
in foods from elsewhere as well (not under Hashgacha).  (This, at
least, was the case a couple of years ago, when we were there). 
Please speak to the Mashgiach and ask him precisely what may and may
not be eaten there.

Soon I will be spending a week in Taos, New Mexico for a scientific
conference.  Has anyone been there before? What can you tell me about
how well the supermarkets are stocked with kosher foods, breads, etc.
Anything else I might want to know before going? (also, how's the skiing
? Are there beginners slopes for me).

Thank you in advance. Please send responses to me directly.
