Je Magazine 14

JE Editors Note
Dear Readers,
With the Yomim Noraim behind us and Chanukah coming closer, I know that a lot of you are getting ready to travel. Over Chanukah lots of people take off and schools some time off. That said Yossi Leifer has some really important tips you need to know when traveling with your children. After the many responses we received last month over our Wine Selections we bring you the second cup. So if you see a bottle you know, learn something new about it, and for a new bottle, well you will be surprised at home many wine brands are really out there. This month's Home on the Kosher Range is a real treat. No doubt, many of our readers have already booked their flights or cruise ship berths for their upcoming winter vacation. But, don't miss the boat when it comes to kashrus and various other halachic issues which can arise. Providing kosher supervision to a "megaship" carrying over 4,000 guests, who are served more than 12,000 meals per day, is a gargantuan task! And, for those of you who get seasick and opt to fly the friendly skies this winter, there are some pointers that the alert kosher traveler should always bear in mind. This months Book Review is on Sara Yoheved Rigler's Holy Woman which is an ArtScroll best-selling biography. In the interview we have she speaks about her latest release, Lights from Jerusalem. Included as well is an excerpt from the book just to give you a little inside look. Mover and shaker Eli Gerstner is at it again with 3 simultaneous releases reassuring his presence in Jewish Music.

This months Rewind is A Tribute: IF WE COULD ONLY REWIND TIME AS WELL. Since it was R' Shlomo's yahrzheit two Shabbosim ago, we decided to try to dive into his career. His works influenced pretty much every singer in the last 50 years so read for yourself what it was like at the beginning. Dining this month features places around Florida. Be sure to see what's new and where it's at. Once again thanks for reading, and don't forget to keep an eye out for our amazing, super sized, Chanukah issue, our way of keeping you informed of all the major upcoming entertainment events.
