When I stayed in the Hilton Philly City Line I asked them to disable the battery pack inside the lock device. The head of maintainence was a goy who happened to have worked for Jewish hotels. You would think the guy was a Gemara kop the way he tried a half dozen arguments why the battery pack should not be chilul Shabbos. I had to have the front desk send someone to let me back in my room every time. I was worried the whole time that the hotel was just outside the Bala Cynwyd eruv and I would be hassled for not having keys or ID with me but boruch Hashem they didn't bother me.
R' Dovid Feinstein holds that you can set off an LED light on Shabbos delo nicha lay, this according to one kollel whose yungerleit set off a light on one building exit door when they could walk a few steps more to avoid the issue completely. Another rosh kollel goes to the mikva every Shabbos morning in someone's shvimming pool where he sets off an LED motion sensor. I believe that R' Yitzchok Elchonon Spector & the Ksav Sofer hold you could even set off an electric motor delo nicha lay.Can you tayna that the electronic component within the lock is lo nicha lay? Is the battery any worse than LED which is not aish?
http://www.haaretz.com/weekend/week-s-end/ultra-orthodox-and-online-1.321827The dray kop from the Queens Vaad keeps ploppering that anyone blogging against him is oiver on a takonas gedolim which was made against websites in Eretz Yisroel even though this website is based in Lakewood.Too bad that the rug was just pulled out from under whatever shvach arguement he thinks he had. Dov Povarsky has taken back his resignation from the Bechadrei Chadorim blog after the gedolim realized they were not given all the facts against the internet by R' Moishe Karp. The website is now allowed to operate with rabbonim monitoring what is written.The websites that allow exposing the corruption of the Queens Vaad are all run by rabbonim whether they are your cup of tea or not.
Saflok is a division of Kaba Group from Schweiz. For the past 95 years Kaba has been owned by Brown Boveri another Swiss company that made the controls for the Nazi U-Boats. Their precision for chilul Shabbos must be just as advanced as killing Jews and Allied Navy personnel.
I assume R' Yudel is not thrilled with all the kashering methodshttp://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/youngandhungry/2010/10/20/a-yh-interview-with-d-c-cookbook-legend-joan-nathan/Y&H: You note that Kosher wine is on the rise in France. Have some of the more famous chateaus started producing Kosher wines now and did you get to sample any during your many visits?JN: Yes, regular vineyards do kosher runs, making sure to kasher all the equipment and the entire place. This is unlike America where an entire facility is kosher. There is only one totally kosher vineyard that I know of in France.
The two yeshivos were Torah Vodaas whose rosh yeshiva gives hashgocho to Rubashkin & Bais Yaakov of Brooklyn, which is Balkany's school. Maybe he was going to redirect the money to the defense fund for his shvogger Sholom Rubashkin.There has to be a limit to the chutzpah coming from the mouths of these heimishe defense lawyers like Nat Lewin & Ben Brafman.http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/brooklyn_rabbi_preyed_on_rich_jew_g1iYLis35mpGKLQgaBVaKNA Brooklyn rabbi ran an unholy scam on a $16 billion hedge fund because he knew that its founder was "Jewish and . . . rich," a prosecutor told jurors yesterday.Rabbi Milton Balkany demanded $4 million from SAC Capital Advisors founder Steven Cohen by threatening that a prison inmate he was counseling would go to the feds with insider-trading allegations against the firm, Manhattan federal prosecutor Jesse Furman said.Balkany -- whose "statements were lies, pure and simple," according to Furman -- was videotaped pocketing checks from an SAC lawyer and saying "that Mr. Cohen and SAC were in the clear," Furman said in the extortion trial's opening statement.Defense lawyer Benjamin Brafman countered that Balkany -- who won dismissal of an earlier fraud case by paying back $700,000 in misspent government grants -- had merely engaged in a "stupid plan" to help two cash-strapped Orthodox schools in Brooklyn.He added that the feds and SAC lawyers used "scripted" conversations to "keep Balkany coming back and talking, so that, eventually, they'd conclude he committed a crime.""You want to find him guilty for using bad judgment?" Brafman asked. "For that, we plead guilty today."
http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/business/dairies-go-to-war-over-haredi-consumers-1.320811Israel's dairies have launched an aggressive fight over ultra-Orthodox consumers, and are offering farmers a premium if they uphold higher kashrut standards.
"The websites that allow exposing the corruption of the Queens Vaad are all run by rabbonim whether they are your cup of tea or not." Yeh! Right!
What about motion sensors ?
The websites referred to are run by R' Yudel Shain, R' Doniel Eidensohn among others. They are musmochim and major talmidei chochomim. You will of course put them down because they don't cover up for you.
http://blogs.forbes.com/nathanvardi/2010/11/02/the-man-who-personally-owes-citigroup-126-million/The summary of this messy story is Citigroup has a judgement against Moshe Stern from Monsey to the tune of $126 million. His escrow agent Ephraim Frenkel has already been arrested.Involved in this is a lawyer named Steven Friedman who also happens to be the rabbi of Ramath Orah on the Upper West Side. This is probably the most left wing shul in the world affiliated with the OU. They have a woman assistant rabbi and women are given roles in davening.
A big factor in the initial issur on Israeli blogs was pressure on the gedolim from Tropper associates who knew that the mystery talmid chochom with the pen name Yechezkel 8 was about to blow the Tropper scandal sky high. With the blogs shut down they would only have to run around to rip down the pashkevilim.
"he websites referred to are run by R' Yudel Shain, R' Doniel Eidensohn among others. They are musmochim and major talmidei chochomim. You will of course put them down because they don't cover up for you."If ths site was watched by just a normal jew, there would'nt all this crap comments here.
a "normal" jew would use lashon nekiya and not the bad language you use even if biased against r' yudel & r' doniel
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703708404575586631753094588.htmlBrooklyn real-estate mogul Rubin Schron is fighting his former lawyer for control of a national nursing-home company in a battle that pits one of the city's largest and most secretive landlords against an attorney who was a trusted adviser and business partner for years.The dispute shines a rare spotlight on Mr. Schron, 72 years old, who has largely avoided the public eye despite building up an empire of skyscrapers, warehouses and apartment complexes worth billions of dollars.The focal point of the fight is SavaSeniorCare, an Atlanta-based nursing-home chain with 18,000 patients and 20,000 employees that Mr. Schron says he has the right to buy for $100 million—far less than what it's worth—from his former lawyer, Leonard Grunstein, and a banker, Murray Forman.Mr. Grunstein insists the option isn't valid.But the rift between Messrs. Schron and Grunstein runs deeper. Mr. Grunstein first represented Mr. Schron in the 1980s, according to court filings. Today the two sides can't even seem to agree on whether they used to be friends.Mr. Schron's complaint says that the relationship between the two men "eventually extended beyond business" and that "Grunstein attended the weddings of a number of Schron's children."Mr. Grunstein's wife Chana Grunstein said of Mr. Schron: "My husband made him not a millionaire, a billionaire…and he's not happy."The dispute is also deeply personal. Mr. Schron says he fired Mr. Grunstein in 2009 after years of "abuse and intimidation." "Grunstein routinely shouted at, cursed, and threatened Schron, often in the presence of Schron's children," Mr. Schron's complaint says. Mr. Grunstein, in a court filing, denied those allegations.
Why biased? I have nothing against Reb Yudel or anyone else. Just don't claim that it is a Kosher site (pun NOT intended).He does a wonderful job in the kashrusworld (as opposed to you, spotlight ush'cheinov - as in oi l'rasha oi l'sh'cheinoy).
Funny how you try buttering up R' Yudel on the blog so that he doesn't ban you from posting comments while you stab him in the back.Yoel Schonfeld wrote the attack piece in the Queens Vaad propaganda magazine on the kashrus bloggers and there is no bigger kashrus blogger than R' Yudel.Chaim Schwartz, according to people who have spoken to him, bashmutzes R' Yudel to people in person that R' Yudel comes into Queens to do events with even worse kashrus than VHQ.The only people that would believe this VHQ baloney are very gullible who have no idea what kind of two-faced liars VHQ are.
Yudel Shain hasn't done a job in Queens in years. He's still looking for a caterer that has at least a basic kashrus standard in queens.
That didn't stop the Queens Vaad from bashmutzing R' Yudel just like they do to anyone else who knows about their cover ups.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mao_ZedongMao, ymach shmoy, who was the first "Chairman" of the Chinese Communist Party coined the expression that "the best defense is a good offense".The Queens Vaad has wholeheartedly embraced this Marxist-Leninist hashkofoh.
We still expect the Queens Vaad to be combative against any other hashgocho coming into the borough even though they are now sticking their noses into other areas like the Hilton hotel in Staten Island.They've just got to keep the local mafia cartel going strong $$$.
Actually, we were just informed that the Queens Vaad is all over the place in Manhattan, New Jersey, Connecticut and even infringing on the territory of the 5 Towns Vaad in Lawrence & Woodmere.Just who do they think they are to block access in Queens to other hashgochos? They even send in their programmed robots from Chofetz Chaim yeshiva to question stores that don't really need hashgocho at all, "why don't you have the Queens Vaad?"http://www.madametussauds.com/NewYork/PlanYourVisit/SpecialEvents/PlanningAParty/Default.aspxAnd we'd love to hear Schwartzie explain how the Queens Vaad can do Mauzone catering at Madame Tussaud's with all the pritzus there.

The NY Supersol, which sells nothing but Rubashkin, will not be very happy about thishttp://www.israelidiamond.co.il/english/News.aspx?boneId=918&objid=8149Israeli supermarket chain Supersol will expand its operations to include the United States, ‘Calcalist’ reported on Wednesday. The chain, which owns a string of “Yesh” supermarkets for the ultra-Orthodox in Israel, will be opening a branch of “Yesh” in Monsey, New York, that will cater to the town’s sizeable ultra-Orthodox Jewish population. The strictly kosher supermarket, which will occupy more than 10,000 square meters, is expected to open in the first quarter of 2001, ahead of the Passover shopping rush.http://www.calcalist.co.il/marketing/articles/0,7340,L-3425229,00.htmlThey are taking over the Pathmark that is closing.

You might be mistaken about VHQ entering 5 Towns. If you are talking about Mauzone they have a satellite there under V5T. I have been wondering if the new owner of Mauzone in Lawrence, Dovid Shragi Gross, is the son of George Gross from the scandal at Negev on Ave J. They certainly bear a resemblance. Negev was the longest running Flatbush Vaad client for almost 50 years. Rabbi Goldberg had enough with George's bad behavior, the final straw being when he let a goy broil livers without supervision. Negev was then dumped by both Flatbush Vaad & the 2nd hashgocho Rav Mendelson. Rav Babad from 20th Ave hustled in to grab the account, ignoring a letter from Rabbi Goldberg. This led to some hashgochos declaring Rav Babad unreliable and a crackdown on him by KIC. George Gross continued catering from ghost locations claiming he is under either VHQ or V5T. It's doubtful that he ever paid a fee to these hashgochos. He has probably been repackaging Mauzone as his own.
you gotta be kiddin about der rosh kollel vus geit tzim shvimming pool yeden shabbos. tziz nisht a kollel. tziz a personal enrichment scheme. freg em how many yungerleit he has and compare it to the facts. and find out about the meshigginer baal habus who owns the pool and what their arrangement is. the meshigginer's brother rents out part of his store on 13th ave to the fake mekubel who receives suckers just like the sketch goyim with the crystal balls. and he was before that involved in the art gallery scam where everyone lost their money and never got paid back

The real reason is probably because European anti-Semites say that Jews are stealing Arab land.

Why would "spotlight on the Queens Vaad" reside in queens with all the pritzus on Main Street and/or Metroplitan Avenue or any other street in Queens? Did he ask his cronies in Israel if it is allowed?Here comes some more "tales" from him.
ever heard of darka achrita? no one is forcing queens vaad to cater in a place that is kavua to have pritzus when there are hundreds of other places to cater at that have a kosher seviva
Yeh, So get outta Queens, you bum.
