This is something that the Jewish community must do something about.
Of course it should be done in a law-abiding fashion.

 |warren@      But the chef
/ nysernet.org is not worried at all.

Assuming the vendor is legally licensed, I find this abhorrent.  Is
there nothing that can be done through a combination of police, the
Jewish community and publicity?  Surely there are hundreds of Jews
outside and around the Holocaust Museum on a regular basis, a large
number of whom would actively support this vendor if they knew what was
going on.  Should the JDL be reactivated?

Subject: Re: re: DC Kosher Vendor

Unfortunately, very little can be done.  For starters the Jewish community
here is very uninvolved.  (One consequence is the difficulty of supporting
kosher eating establishments).

He is attempting to get some publicity, and the Washington Jewish Week
featured an article on his cart (including photo) in the last issue
(week ending Shabbat Parshat Pinchas).  This article steered clear of
controversy.  I discussed this with Michael, and he felt that brewing up
a storm would be detrimental.  Instead, through positive publicity he
hopes to get established and only then make further attempts to move
back to the Museum area.

In this way, there can be (a) "grass roots" support for accommodation
near the Museum and (b) possible avoidance of "favoritism" claims.

One must remember that he does not work on Shabbat, so it is exceedingly
difficult for him to establish himself in such a high visibility area.
On Saturday morning, some other vendor gets the spot and come Sunday he
feels that Michael is pushing him out.  At the 15th street location
(around the corner from the White House) there are 8 legal spots.

In any event, we are letting Michael be the General in planning this
campaign as it is his livelihood and physical well being which are on
the line.

Subject: Hardcopy Edition 

I would like to announce the availability of a hardcopy edition of mail
jewish.  The edition is produced weekly in postscript form and can be
sent to you by e-mail.  The copy will be sent in the form of multiple
(6-8) mail messages which you must be able to edit and paste together
using a text editor.  You also need a postscript printer for output.  If
someone volunteers, a complete copy could be placed on one of the
fileservers for anonymous ftp.

Send me a note if you're interested in a sample or to be put on the
mailing list.  Use the subject 'hardcopy' so my mail filter can assemble
the requests.

Kol tov,
Barry Friedman

Subject: Kosher Food in London

I will be going to London IY'H in mid-August, and I would appreciate
up-to-date information on kosher food availability, especially
restaurants/take-away shops.  I've been to London several times before
and know the basic kashrus picture, but experience has taught me that
the restaurant scene changes pretty regularly.  Please respond
privately, and please include hashgacha information.  I am particularly
interested in the situation in Golders Green and in Central London, but
would welcome all information.

Thanks for your help.

Subject: Pikuach Nefesh and Mixed Swimming

In the end of Volume 6, Mr. Dov Ettner of the Weitzman Inst.  talked
about sports and health. I had the following discussion with him which I
would like to share with the readers and ask if the readers know of
sources for permission. As many of the readers are aware that Israel is
a small country and there are next to none all year around separate
swimming facilities with hours for men or women alone. What if your
Othopedist, Cardiologist, Neurologist or other specialist recommend
swimming - without it you would be in GRAVE danger of decreasing your
lifespan? Dov told me of a Frum cripple, whom he knows, that swims
regularily at the Weitzman Institute. A friend of mine from my Kollel
(Israel Aircraft Industries - after work) who suffered a major heart
attack goes swimming in a pool at the same time that the wife (also a
cardiac patient) of the Chief Sefardic Rabbi of his city swims. Now in
all the above cases, the people involved would prefer separate swimming,
but there is non-available. Other sports like jogging is not an option
for the cripple.  Awaiting for Halachic sources.

Subject: San Antonio TX

I may be in San Antonio, Texas on July 25 - 28 (yes, that does include
Tisha B'Av) on business.  Any pointers to observant Jewish community in
the area would be appreciated.  My mail feed is a bit erratic, so if
your mail bounces, my voice phone is 800/343-1721 (work).  The people
who answer this number may be a bit cagey, but tell them you're calling
for me about my trip to San Antonio and everything should be OK.
