Shovel your sidewalk

Resident :

If you have not shoveled your sidewalk, please do so on this Sunday.

It is supposed to reach 30 degrees.

....... ( The cold temperatures will not be an excuse ).

By city ordinance, you are to shovel your sidewalk.

.......( Make walking SAFE for everyone , especially the elderly ).

Thank you for being a responsible resident.

  • Wow. A simple posting about shoveling snow sure got someone all triggered up and all defensive about protecting the boys.

    No Helen. Why are you opposed to original content on this site and just providing information people want?

Hello, neighbor. This thread was closed due to violations of the EveryBlock community guidelines, which intend to keep discussions informative, friendly and respectful.

North Side cultural center unites Rohingya refugees together

“The Rohingya [had] no place to learn English, no place to sit down together, so we made a place for everyone to meet here,” Zakaria said.

    North Side cultural center unites Rohingya refugees together
    Nasir Zakaria is one of hundreds of Rohingya, a stateless Indo-Aryan people from the Rakhine State, Myanmar, who found refuge in Chicago's North Side. After immigrating to the U.S. from Myanmar in 2013 and settling in Rogers Park, Zakaria said he could not sit idly while his people suffered from horrendous persecution.

Advice needed!

Recently, my puppy got out and my very kind neighbors took her in. They fed her and ended up babysitting for about three hours. They were beyond wonderful. They even offered to watch her again. Their kids loved her and she obviously has a great time with them.
My dog is a lot of energy and can intimidate most people. I want to express my gratitude with cookies or something.
Here is my problem:
They are Hasidic and I want to give them something they can enjoy. I am not religious, and I don’t want to make them anything that would not follow their lifestyle. I don’t want to disrespect them in any way.

Any suggestions?

  • Whatever you decide to do, don't bring something you baked yourself. An Orthodox person will not eat food made in a non-Kosher kitchen. If you bring something to eat, it must have have the kosher symbols on it. That's why others are suggesting Tel Aviv or Northshore bakeries or the kosher bakeries at Marianos on Touhy or Jewel on Howard. Always leave food in original packaging so one can tell where it is from. Gift card is easier!

  • Buy them a doggy minora.

    The one above is kinda expensive but I'm sure you can find them cheaper.

    Anyway it's a thoughtful gift thats a nice momento of the situation.
