Become a testing center which will administer exams for college credits in Jewish studies courses. These courses have received approval by the National College Credit Recommendation Service (nationalccrs.org). College credits for these courses are accepted automatically at a number of US Colleges, enabling participants to earn a college degree without actually attending the college. We have been offering these courses to students in America, Canada, and Israel over the last two years and have had hundreds of students who have earned college credit and graduated. You can see more about our program by visiting our website at rechtijs.com.
Traveling with kids takes a lot of space so something like the Keeper Waterproof Roof Top Cargo Bag is perfect in helping free up much needed space in the van. It is not one of the hard shell carriers but ends up being cheaper and easier to install. Plus, this product has an average of 4.4 stars for 502 customer reviews! It works with vehicles with roof racks or even just side rails.
At this time it is marked down 42% off retail to just $43.99! (Reg. $76.39) with free shipping.
For the size of this cargo bag (15 cubic feet) which is on the bigger side along with the good reviews and price, it seems a good buy:
- Waterproof rooftop cargo bag with 15 cubic feet of space
- Increases vehicle cargo space
- Waterproof design protects cargo against road grit, sun, wind and rain
- Soft sides flex to fit odd-shaped loads
- Folds compact for easy storage

(Star-K) Ed: a must read!
By Rabbi Zvi Goldberg, Kashrus Administrator
A person visiting a hospital patient is performing the great mitzvah of bikur cholim. It is one of the mitzvos for which a person reaps benefits in this world, while the principal reward is saved for the next world. While visiting the sick, some halachic issues may arise. This article addresses these issues from the visitor’s point of view. Questions affecting the patient (such as adjusting the bed, using the call button, and asking the staff to perform tasks on Shabbos) are important issues that should be posed to one’s rabbi.

The following kashrus information is from the COR Detroit dated December 27, 2013.
“DUNCAN HINES MILK CHOCOLATE BROWNIES, which in the past contained cream and milk and stated OU-D on 19.3 oz. boxes, has been reformulated to a pareve formula and now bears a plain OU on new 18 oz. packages. Each box should be carefully checked, because some old formula product is still on store shelves.
Many PILLSBURY FROSTINGS which used to be OU-D have now changed to plain OU (pareve) status, even some with names such as Milk Chocolate, Cream Cheese and Butter Cream. Each container should be checked, because some OU-D product is still on store shelves.”

Cleveland Heights City Manager, Ms. Susanna Neirman – email@example.com
University Heights Facilities Manager Jeff Pokorny – firstname.lastname@example.org
