Destination Kosher

How Eddie’s Kosher Travel Became # 1

How did you get into the travel business?

Discovering Korea

“What’s a nice Jewish girl from New York doing in a place where she can’t find a nice Jewish boy?” What was I doing there?

Family Travels in Jerusalem

This summer our family was fortunate enough to take a trip to Israel and spend the majority of our time in Jerusalem. Before the trip, I consulted with friends who have traveled to Israel with kids and scoured the internet for recommendations of the best activities to do with children. Depending on what your goals are, you can craft your itinerary in any


Where is Gonen?

A reader asked: “I see on the maps that Gonen is well located, so why have I never heard of this community?” The answer is that, despite the government’s new “Israeli” name, everyone still refers to the neighborhood by its original name Katamon.

The Ocean Brings More To NYC Than Just A Day At The Beach This Summer

New York—The warm weather and sunny skies have all of us enjoying the beautiful weather outside. Summer has always been my favorite time of year. As a kid, I never was affected by the humidity as I am now. This past week was especially humid and I knew that I had to compile a list of places to escape it. I found a great place to escape the heat but still enjoy the

Dutch Wonderland – What, No Kosher Food?

A posting on yeahthatskosher.com reported that after many years of running a kosher concession at Dutch Wonderland, PA kosher mart at Dutch Wonderland has closed. It will be a fond farewell to one of the first theme parks to offer a full menu of kosher food and save us the burden of packing a cooler of pekalach to sneak in and carry around the park. It was a


Not Your Father’s 5k Race

If you are tapped into social media, you must have seen a barrage of interesting races popping up as “suggested posts.” These races are not your typical sponsor your buddy going to Florida charity races. They are extreme and over-the-top team building life experiences. The races take place outdoors throughout the country, and contestants are subjected to

State Fair Meadowlands

Every year as summer starts the NJ Transit buses are lined with ads for the Meadowlands State Fair. Is it just some dinky carnival like the one that takes place during chol hamoed in Mosney? In case you didn’t know, every chol hamoed several parking lots in Monsey become a faux mini Six Flags with some rusty old ferris wheel and a truck called
