"Royale With Cheese."

The statistics here are actually encouraging. (The prices, not too much.) (H/T Gil.) It was just last night, at a shiur, that someone mentioned that combination of kosher meat and cheese at non-kosher Israeli McDonald's actually may make them worse than the equivalent outside of Israel. So here we see that cheeseburgers aren't even advertised and barely ever served, and that 70% of (secular?!) Israelis want kosher meat, and only 5% davka want non-kosher (whatever that means).

What's interesting that (most) Jerusalem locations aren't kosher. (In fact, it's the last non-kosher place on the eatery-heavy Emek Refaim.) I think that may be the tourist trade, though.

Not ideal, of course, but a very good sign, I think. One commenter on that article wonders if it's really about being open on Shabbat. Based on this, I wouldn't be surprised if that was a big factor.

I'm very sorry to post it here (could not find your e-mail - you can remove my comment if you like), but I just wanted to share with you my blog that is dedicated to the Tabernacle (Mishkan), dealing mostly with parashot Terumah - Pekudei.

I think you may find it interesting, particularly the pages dealing with Mishkan corner boards and dimensions of the courtyard.

Here is the link:

Thank you.
