First Shuk Tour of 5771

6 Tishrei 5771
September 14, 2010
shuk-tour-sept-14-10-first-of-5771The first shuk tour of Machane Yehuda in 5771 took place this morning with a smaller than usual group, but as in the past, resulting in a good use of time.

Participants seemed to benefit from the explanations offered, and I for one was particularly pleased by some of the insight provided to me by participants.

In short, it was a good experience for all concerned.

    FROM A TOUR PARTICIPANT:
    Thank you very much, Reb Yechiel, for an excellent tour. My husband and I were both impressed that you did not try to tell us what level of kashrut or hechsher to hold by; that you carefully stated and reiterated that you are interested in letting us know what to look for in order to be educated kosher consumers, not “which shops are kosher and which shops are not”; that you shared with us new tools and facts to arm ourselves in all of our shopping experiences.

    You don’t preach — you educate. Your assessments seem to us to be fair to the shopkeepers, and to the varying levels of kashrut observance of tour participants.
