Follow Me To The Holy Land!

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

I’m in Cleveland’s United Club, watching my delayed flight get pushed further and further back. I’m also rattling through potential backup plans with a super helpful United Club agent as we try to figure out what exactly to do if we miss our connection to Tel Aviv tonight.

Flying is always an adventure, but being prepared with backup plans is crucial in case things go south.

My record locator now includes business class seats on Air Canada, Delta, El Al, and United flights. One way or another we’ll make it to Israel 😀

If you want to join along our trip to the holy land, you can follow @DansDeals on Instagram for the latest updates.

My brother JJ will keep posting great bargains while I’m traveling, though I’ll be sure to share some posts as well.

There is no way you’re making the DL flight tonight (if it’s not delayed).


Who is that super helpful agent ?


He means the United Club customer service agent


“One way or another we’ll make it to Israel”

Maybe you, your baggage is a different story though.


How did you get them to reprotect you in so many airlines in advance?

Lubavitchers do 1 day YT in Eretz Yisrael, 2 days elsewhere. Not based on permanent residence.


That’s not so cut and clear

Would love to meet you in person. I return to Israel Thursday afternoon (this is my 6th US trip in 2019).


dont forget the amazing falafel bnei brak has to offer. the best place is two doors down from the corner. (building with the black roof, right near the bus stop)


As my son fondly refers to it עיר התורה והפלאפל


The “Follow me to The Holy Land” title should be used again when you make aliyah. Imyirtza Hashem by you. Hatzlacha on your trip meanwhile.
