- STARBUCKS UPDATE FROM CRCRead more
After extensive research, a newly updated Starbucks list has been compiled by the cRc. The following are some of the changes from the previous list:
1) The cRc now can recommend getting a latte in any location as long as one orders a “kiddie latte” - which means to order it prepared at 115 degree Fahrenheit.
2) For those that do not use regular milk, in addition to soy milk, there is also coconut milk available under the OU.
3) Cold brew coffee (a new item) presents a kashrus issue due to kovush.
4) Teavana teas are mostly not yet kosher certified but they are slowly working towards becoming certified. Of course plain, unflavored tea does not need a hechsher.
5) Clover coffee can be ordered if one asks the Barista to use wooden sticks instead of the metal whisk.

- CRIME ALERT "PORCH PIRATES"Read more
CRIME ALERT "PORCH PIRATES" - STEEL PACKAGES FROM PORCHES AND FRONT DOORS.
“Porch pirating is a common problem today, in the age of online shopping,” said Capt. Paul Vernon, who heads up the West Valley Patrol Division.
Jail time and good video like this are about the only deterrents to the growing problem.
“Imagine if this stolen package had an ill person’s vital medicine,” Capt. Vernon added.
Often the pirates are not on foot and they are not conspicuous. Generally there is a driver and a guy on foot and the car used is often a high end car like a BMW.
The thief’s are "smart" they seem to target affluent areas and use nice cars so as not to draw attention.
TIPS TO "HARDEN" THE TARGET and make it difficult at best for the Thief’s to steel your stuff.
Have packages delivered to locations where a person is home Have packages delivered to the vendor’s local store for pick up Have packages held by the delivery company for personal pick up Have packages delivered to your office Ask for notification when package is delivered so you can have a trusted neighbor pick up for you Add delivery instructions like, requiring a signature upon delivery, or where to place parcels.
Police warn that most porch pirating occurs during the day when residents are away, and the thieves are often involved in identify theft in addition to taking parcels.
- Rabbi Avi Stewart to sing the National Anthem At Dodger StadiumRead more
Rabbi Avi Stewart, Rabbi and Cantor of Westwood Kehilla will sing the National Anthem
at this year’s JEWISH COMMUNITY DAY at Dodger Stadium. This is the first time a Rabbi
will sing the National Anthem at a Major League Baseball game.
The game is this Sunday August 30th, first pitch is at 5:08pm. Rabbi will sing the Anthem at approximately 4:40pm.
Besides being the Rabbi and Cantor for the Westwood Kehilla, Rabbi Stewart is also in
in private practice as a therapist. Family and adolescent issues.
Rabbi Stewart is a baseball fan and a Dodger fan, so when the Dodgers asked him to sing
the National Anthem he was honored. He has sung the national Anthem but not live in front of 50,000 people (the expected attendance for Sundays game). This is something he
Has always wanted to do.
The Star Spangled Banner is known to be a very challenging song because of the many different vocal ranges one must go through during the song. Rabbi feels very confident and comfortable about the event.
Rabbi received some great advice from his Friend Zevi Daniels who sang the National Anthem at Camden Yard in 2013.
-Wear ear plugs. The echo is a giant stadium can be confusing
-No shtick with vocals keep in simple and just sing the words
-Slow, sing the song nice and slow do not rush.
