Subject: Hechshers and your LOR

Everyone regularly puts out what their LOR does not recomend.  How about
putting out a list of what your LOR does recomend.  Such a list can't be
to long to be a tedious job, and it would be helpful to all of us.  My
LOR does not recomend anything - and I mean anything.  He refuses to get
involved in the subject.

Subject: Jewish info for Brussels

We will be in Brussels for two weeks in mid-January and I was wondering
if anybody can supply the following information:

(a) where the orthodox shuls are located
(b) where (if any) are there kosher eateries
(c) we would like inexpensive accommodations which are reasonably
close to both the frum community and the university hospital (if that is not
a contradiction).
(d) any suggestions on the above

Subject: Kashrus of Muesilix brand cereal

I recently accidentally purchased a box of Muesilix brand cereal by
kellogs it has a K. (I hardly ever shop, just got back from israel and
forgot to check for the OU). Does anyone know what the baltimore vaad
says (R. Heinemann's) about it. Is it reliably kosher?

Subject: Kosher in Cherry Hill

Just for the record, the kosher place in CH is called David's Harp, and
is at the (former, since it's now gone) Ellisberg Circle.  The location
is in a shopping center at the intersection of King's Highway (rt 41)
and Rt 70 (Marlton Pike) on the West side of CH.  It's sort of the NW
corner (on the right of 41S, on the left of 70E, if that helps!).
*And*, it's still in business.

Subject: Phoenix answers

Thanks to everyone who sent me information about Phoenix.  A couple of
people sent mail asking that I let them know what I learned as they,
too, are planning trips to Phoenix.

First, I learned there are several readers in Phoenix who responded
immediately with gracious offers to help.  My thanks to them & all the
others from elsewhere who took the trouble to tell me what they knew or
had looked up.

Here's a digest of what I learned:

  Jewish Population: ~60,000

  Orthodox shuls: either 3 or 4, a big shul, a shtiebel and either 
                  one or two Chabad houses (one person said there are 
		  two, but another said one had recently closed)

            Rabbi Z. Levertov (Chabad)   
   	    Tifereth Israel
	    2110 E. Lincoln Dr.
	    Phoenix, AZ   85016
	    (602) 944-2753

	    Rabbi David Rebibo
	    Beth Joseph 
	    525 E. Bethany Home Rd. 
	    Phoenix, AZ
	    (602) 277-8858
	    (602) 277-3443 (eve.)

  JCC:  (602) 249-1832

  Education: Phoenix Hebrew Academy (I gather it is next door to Beth 

  Eating: two kosher stores & a kosher restaurant. Also a kosher 
          butcher with take-out. Sunday night kosher buffet at the 
          Ritz-Carlton (all you can eat, $25)

Thanks to everyone who replied.  Hope this information helps anyone else
who will be going to Phoenix.  So far, it sounds like a nice place to be
stuck for Shabbat away from home.

Kol tuv,

Subject: Request information on Guam

Hi. A friend of mine will be traveling to Guam on business and would
like to know if there is an observant community there.  If anyone has
contacts there--perhaps through the military chaplain?--I'd be happy to
pass the information on to my friend.

Subject: Restaurants en Route: Chicago-Balt./Wash. (Cleveland? Pittsburgh?)

    My wife and I (and two of our kids) will be driving from Chicago to
the Balt./Wash. area for Thanksgiving weekend.  My wife HATES to pack a
big cooler with umpteen meals to eat in the car or at roadside rest
stops, and information on restaurants along the way would be
appreciated.  (Once in the Balt./Wash. area, we are already well
provided for.)  Please note the following:
  1. We are not committed to any particular route.  If a route is
slightly longer than the shortest possible one but has places to eat
along the way, we would be willing to consider it.
  2. One possible route passes near Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and I am
told (can anyone confirm?) that this doesn't add much time or distance.
If this is so, restaurant info in Cleveland and Pittsburgh becomes
  3. It would be helpful to have not only names and addresses of
restaurants, but also phone numbers, type of food, general price range,
and hours of business, particularly during/before/after a holiday
weekend.  Depending on our exact dates/times of travel (not yet fixed),
we MIGHT be interested in lunch around noon on Thanksgiving day itself,
dinner on Sunday night at the end of the holiday weekend, and/or any of
several meals on Monday or Tuesday of the following week (when special
holiday hours should no longer be a complicating factor).

Thanks in advance for any information that I receive in response.
Private E-mail responses may be more appropriate than general MJ
postings for this and all other requests for kashrut information about a
particular city.  (Moderator, what do you think about this?) [The best
procedure is for people to send such replies by private email to the
requester, and then for the requester to summarize the info and post it
to the list, so that it is available for other people who may be going
to the same place some time in the future. Mod.]

Subject: Shabbos in Colorado Springs

Friends of mine will be in COlorado Springs for shabbat in about 3
weeks. I know that there's chabad there, but do they get a minyan? Are
there kosher/ glatt veggie dining possibilities for during the week?
Write me directly, please, addressing mail "For Josh". Thanks!
