Another Shuk Tour Behind Us/ Another Planned

14 Elul 5770
August 24, 2010

shuk-tour-aug-23-2010-2Another group participated in a Machane Yehuda walking tour last evening, one that entailed a new challenge, competing with a shuk summer festival. Anyway, we did overcome the challenge and the group [at least I hope] benefited from the experience and the event was a success.

I was particularly pleased with the interest of participants, all of whom presenting many questions and working to absorb the realities of ‘The Shuk’ as they were presented.

I would like to announce the final shul tour of 5770, which will take place blei neder on Tuesday, 21 Elul (31 August). Starting time will at 17:30. Details of where to meet will be sent to you in response to registration emails.

Please send and email to register, with the words ‘shuk tour’ in the subject line.

The fee is NIS 30 a person and please, please, do not register unless you are really planning to come. The last-minute cancelations are becoming too frequent and as such, if you cancel less than 48 hours in advance, you are expected to pay even though you will not be attending. The fee for the 90-120 minute event is quite modest so one is expected to attend and pay if registered.

    Dear Yehiel,
    I was on your shul tour last evening, 23 August.
    Thank you, thank you for allowing me to understand all the “shtuyot” of the signage at the shuk and how these stores get away with it.
    You’ve taught me skills on how to be a more vigilant kosher consumer when shopping at the shuk (and in general here in Israel).
    There are lots of pitfalls to watch out for and I really, really appreciate all your efforts in working to correct them and to educate the public about them.
    You are to be highly commended for your excellent work and the progress you have made. Thank you, thank you!

    I was on your tour of the shuk yesterday, Monday 8/23. Wanted to thank you for the tour – a little wilder & crazier than you thought it would have been. It helped to reinforce what we already know but do not always follow – or as Uncle Moishy sings – read every label to verify the authenticity of the kashrut certificate.
