"ISRAEL & THE PALESTINIANS: UNDERSTANDING THE MIDDLE EAST" (June 19, 2011, 8-9:00 pm/central time)-Will the United Nations declare a Palestinian state in September? What are the "real" prospects for peace between Israel and the Palestinians? These questions and more will be explored as we try to understand the terms of engagement between Israel and her Middle East neighbors. This informative session will lay out the issues and explain the terms so often quoted but not understood. The session takes place on SUNDAY EVENING, JUNE 19, 2011 AT 8:00 PM (central time). There are only 15 spaces available in this session. Spaces will be filled on a "first-come" basis.

FYI: You can get the teabag with 12 oz of hot water in a 16 oz cup, and then they can add 4 oz of the soy milk for you for the same price. They also will refresh (add more hot water) your drink. Just show them your rewards card.
From: Mehadrin Kashrus of Texas
In response to the many inquiries about drinking coffee in Starbucks, the Mehadrin Kashrus of Texas advises the community that keeps strictly Cholov Yisroel as follows:
Based on extensive research conducted by the cRc (Chicago Rabbinical Council), it is clear that there are many issues in patronizing a Starbucks facility (especially for the Cholov Yisroel consumer). As indicated in their online advisory and audio, their lists and guidelines was not made for the strictly Cholov Yisroel consumer.
MKT has done an independent extensive research to determine the status for the Cholov Yisroel community.
Full service Starbucks stores have evolved into establishments that are similar to non-kosher restaurants. All removable items are sanitized and washed with scalding water with real treif items. Stand alone kiosks do not have tarfus, but do wash all removable items together with non Cholov Yisroel items in scalding water.
Besides for the concerns about the direct Kashrus issues involved, one should consult with their Rav to determine whether it is appropriate to patronize a full service store at all.
For kashrus purposes, from any Starbucks* one may purchase:
- Espresso made directly into a disposable cup.
- Caffé Americano with the espresso and hot water poured directly into a disposable cup.
- Iced Latte, using disposables and pareve soy milk. (Have espresso made in a disposable cup, instead of into the standard reusable shot glass).
- Kosher hot tea made in a disposable cup.
- Soy milk is usually UMK Kosher Pareve, but the consumer must verify the carton every time, as it is common that an alternative is used.
This advisory excludes all other products, including the regular brewed coffee that is not recommended.
In general, extreme care must be taken when considering buying even an unflavored black coffee from a vendor which is not kosher certified, as it is possible that parts of the brewing equipment might be used or washed with non-Kosher or non-Cholov Yisroel items. Today, Houston boasts three restaurants (Aroma Classique, Saba's and Aroma Pizza) that prepare high quality coffee and we strongly encourage patronizing these stores to remove all doubt.
* Most coffee houses use a simpler espresso machine, that brews coffee in removable parts that can be washed with non-kosher items. This list is only for Starbucks locations.

I just went through the Toys R Us Guide. They have the Leapster at the same price as Amazon ($39.99), plus you get a $10 Gift Card back if you spend $75, plus you can buy a big plush bear or dog for $5 when your order is over $50. I believe Toys R Us has Leapster Games marked 25% off right now. It sounds like the Leap Frog Website is also going to have a good Cyber Monday sale, too.
Just an FYI. Last season, I got a great deal on the Leapster and he really likes it. At the same time, all the games were on sale. I bought two games at the time. Little did I know that these games rarely go on sale the rest of the year and the are $25 each. So . . . if people are buying the Leapster for a Christmas present, I highly recommend buying several games at the discounted holiday price (if they offer again this season). :)
