Rockland County, NY - For the first time since its opening in 1998, the Palisades Mall, located off the New York State Thruway in Rockland County, will be offering something special to the Jewish community:  kosher food.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide the heimishe community with kosher l’mehadrin food at the mall,” said Shragi Kahana, one of the co-owners of Fun City, in an interview with VIN News.

While the newly opened Fun City features numerous attractions for children ages two through twelve, the snack bar, under the hechsher of R’ Usher Schechter of Congregation K’hal Ohr Moshe in Queens, is open to both the general public and Fun City patrons.  Featuring pizza, knishes, snacks and a full milchig menu, all products are cholov yisroel and pas yisroel.

Located minutes from Monsey and one hour away from both Brooklyn and the Catskills, the Palisades Mall is the tenth largest mall in the United States and a tourist destination for many.  Fun City is located on the third floor of the mall and offers rides, lazer tag, arcade games, mini golf, gemstone panning and MagiQuest, an interactive journey through an enchanted realm.

P.S. Serve parve cholent thursday night and you will have a great olam. No charge for this marketing tip.

My guess is that the local Monsey area Rabbis don't wish to give an Hashgacha to this place in a Mall

The store in Manhattan is CLOSED on Shabbos. The other stores are owned by a non-jewish partner on Shabbos. I'm sure the same thing applies at this new mall complex. Mr. Shragi Kahana no doubt has a non-Jew partner because he sure ain't closing this place down for Shabbos.

So a local rov / agency didnt want to touch it which makes 1000% sense to me. The question is who is the rav ha'machshir?

What does the word "heimish" mean. I thought it was derogatory until I saw it used so in this article.

What I really would like to see is a kosher food stand at some of the major airports. I really don't understand why that hasn't been done already. Do the fast food chains have that much of a stranglehold on the airport concessions?

A friend of mine defines the word "heimish" as a former chasid who is no longer beholden to a Rebbe BUT still claims to be shomer torah u'mitzvos
