As promised, here is a report on where we stayed, attractions we visited and other activities suitable for Frum and Heimishe families who want to do a family vacation in Vermont.   We booked our lodging and vacation rental with the “The Bein Hazmanim Getaway” organized by the Gerstel family of Lakewood, NJ.

Sushi Metsuyan Kosher In Monsey, NY Has Closed

Sushi Metsuyan Kosher in Monsey (technically in Airmont), New York (Rockland County) has closed. It was a favorite restaurant of mine and I will miss it for sure. What I loved about Sushi Metsuyan Monsey was that it was like a hybrid of an upscale kosher restaurant but not outrageously priced. It was also located a bit out of the “Main Street” area down south on Saddle River Road so the place was never jammed packed. The food was always delicious, the menu simple and not very complicated and the food was served in a reasonable amount of time. I really liked it and used to be a very frequent quest there. Either with my family or for business meetings. But the good new is that Chaim (Howard) Stimmel who was a partial owner and partner in the Monsey location of Sushi Metsuyan opened up a brand new kosher Steakhouse and Sushi restaurant on the very same location called The Ridge Steak & Sushi. I just spoke to Chaim and he hopes to post The Ridge Steak & Sushi soon…

Tiyul Talk – Jewish Travel Forum

What is Tiyul Talk? Tiyul Talk is a forum to share advice, ask questions and discuss Jewish and kosher travel around the world. But really, we should say that it WAS a forum to discuss Jewish and Kosher Travel because for some reason the Tiyul Talk forum is no longer active. I remember using the Tiyul Talk in the early days when we launched Kosher Travel Info more than 10 years ago. It was a great source of information on anything related to Jewish and Kosher Travel including kosher restaurants and kosher hotels. If you liked Tiyul Talk and miss it, consider using the Kosher Travel Info forum and message board. The Kosher Travel Info message board has very similar boards to what Tiyul Talk used to have including message boards discussing Passover resorts, kosher travel, Jewish tour guides, kosher cruises, general travel tips and the like. We also have of course, our “Destination” section whit child boards specific to geographical regions including USA (with a child secti…
