Rent-a-Schochet

Bagel - thanks for the reference. How do you get the animal to your shochet?

Rent-a-Schochet

If this is in Great Neck, I know one of the wives in that group, and I've been in touch with her.

Right now, the state of affairs with my friend is (1) where do we obtain an animal and (2) how do we empty our freezers.

I appreciate Bagelman's well-thought out answer. My personal answer is I haven't gotten all the details yet, so I don't know. I'll keep you posted if we go through with this.

Markets off I-80 in Jersey

Not knowing the area, my review of Google Maps suggested the Fairway (and Shoprite in Parsippany, as well as Riverdale Kosher Market) was a more convenient option than Cedar Lane in Teaneck.

Markets off I-80 in Jersey

We ended up in the Fairway in Woodland Park, and was quite disappointed with the selection. As we were plenty early, we also stopped in Riverdale as per plan A.

Rent-a-Schochet

In one of my crazier conversations with a friend the other day, we were discussing purchasing a lamb and finding a shochet to do the honors of schecting. Anyone know if this is a possibility in the NY area? What about a butcher or someone to dress the animal afterwards?

Or is this just a pipedream.

This came from a conversation about an easier version of Grow and Behold.

The next step will be figuring out how to empty out my freezer.

Thanks.

Is it different than other fairways? Any sense of the shop rite in parsippany?

Markets off I-80 in Jersey

We will be returning from vacation this Friday and likely taking I-80 across NJ back to the east side of the Hudson River (unless we take the Tappan Zee). We are not quite sure of our timing yet. What markets are convenient for purchasing meat for Shabbat cooking on the way? We're good with raw food and we'll grill when we get home. Because we don't know our exact timing, suggestions for kosher markets that may close early and general supermarkets that are only later are greatly appreciated.

Our Plan A is Riverdale Kosher Market, but we're not sure we'd get there before closing.

Thanks.

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf NYC

I think tuna prices recently went up dramatically. At the places I grab lunch (non-kosher) tuna sandwiches all went up about $1 in the past 2-3 months.

Is Kosher Cheese also Vegetarian (i.e. without animal rennet?)

Is that true to the whole industry, the kosher industry or the non-kosher industry?

Mike's Bistro

Did it close the 72nd street location? Anything kosher left on that block?

ISo great bakery for bday cake - Bronx, Westchester or Manhattan

Heisler's in New Rochelle gets all of its baked goods from Butterflake in Teaneck. So you can call Butterflake, order something and pick it up in New Rochelle.

I also like Gruenberg's in Riverdale.

bagels?

Bagel Boss on 1st and 15th street (and maybe in Murray Hill too). Kosser's Bialys on the LES.

Fairway's bagels are pretty good too.

Ideas for place to go for a week with kosher restaurants around, PLEASE!

You can check out Tannersville, NY, which is on the way to Hunter Mountain. There's a kosher grocery store, though no restaurants. But it is beautiful.

BBQ in Lakewood

I drove by the bbq place in Lakewood, NJ today on my way from Atlantic City to home. Either I wasn't looking in the right place or it has closed. I didn't have a cell phone with me, so I couldn't call to confirm they were open. Their facebook page hasn't been updated since January.

Thanks.

Small Jewish communities WITH a kosher restaurant...worth eating at

I recall that being a decent bagel place. My top choice has to be Tierra Sur in Oxnard, if you include it as a "small Jewish community." It's really a (very) outer suburb of LA.

Passover Traditions From Around the World

We do the same thing, except oldest to youngest (host goes first). I didn't realize this wasn't universal until I led a seder in college and people looked at me like I had two heads when I asked who was second oldest.

Best bakeries for Passover in [upper] Westchester, NY

There is a kosher bakery in White Plains, but it's hasn't been KLP in the past, and I doubt it will be this year. The bakery in New Rochelle which is certainly not upper Westchester brings in KLP products from Butterflake in NJ.

Restaurant with a Private Room for 10-15 People

I'm looking for a restaurant that could host a party of 10-12 people in a private room, preferably on the east side.

Price point depends on a bunch of factors, so it's TBD.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
