Picture of the Day! “Aaron’s Staff Swallowed their Staffs”

The following photo was sent in by an avid CrownHeights.info reader with the following caption from this weeks Parash.

Parashas Va’eira: 7:9. “When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Provide a sign for yourselves,’ you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff, [and] cast [it] before Pharaoh; it will become a serpent.’ ”

7:12. Each one of them cast down his staff, and they became serpents; but Aaron’s staff swallowed their staffs.

    or that while they bought 1 box of items from Empire Kosher, they did most of their shopping at the Kollel Store

    One box of groceries at Empire Kosher costs more than 5 boxes of groceries at the Kollel Store.

    Itzik practices deceptive marketing.

    At Empire Kosher you may see fruit labelled with a sign for five grapefruit for a dollar, for example. But when you get to checkout you find this was one of the specials you can only purchase if you have bought $20 worth of non-special items and you pay more tho there was no sign reflecting a higher price

    And if you’ve been too undisciplined as to buy lots more than you planned to,with no way to get it home – too bad.
    You’ve spent less than $70 and even if you want to pay for delivery, they won’t deliver.

    That’s why I shop at the Kollel where I on’t feel that I’m getting ripped off.

    I come to Empire Kosher mainly to see and shop by Glicks bakery. The owner Yoely is an amazing sweet guy and is always looking to help the customer. Plus his baked goods are out of this world!
