After months of research and negotiations, we found one ship operator that was not only willing to tolerate the kosher aspect, but was actually happy and proactive in working with our needs and challenges. Over the next 2 years of their sailings, they have one cruise departing on a Monday. We plan to depart Ushuaia on Monday, December 10, 2018 and return to Ushuaia on Thursday, December 20. That way travelers can be away from home for just one Shabbos. … [Read more...] about Final Day To Register!

In NYC the earliest time to daven on January 5 would go from 6:26AM to 7:26AM In Cleveland the earliest time to daven on January 5 would go from 6:58AM to 7:58AM In Detroit the earliest time to daven on January 5 would go from 7:06AM to 8:06AM But permanent daylight saving time would also mean not having to rush home as early on Fridays in December to make it on time for Shabbos, though it would also mean longer winter fast days. … [Read more...] about The Great Daylight Saving Debate Explained; How Would You Vote?
