Q: Where do we find kosher food, Challah and grape juice?

Q: Where can we buy Fish?
A: Costco has fresh and frozen salmon, Kona Seafood Market and other stores have other kosher fish. Halachickly one has to observe scales (skin on) to verify that a fish is kosher. One cannot rely on the name, packaging, or what the seller says, because many fish are mislabeled intentionally or unintentionally. Scales are only kosher if they come off easily when scraping against them. If it tears the skin to get the scales off, they are not Halachickly scales. 
Only salmon doesn't require skin on because no non-kosher fish looks like salmon.
For all fish ideally whole is better, but if it's cut one can rinse it. 


Q: Do you get a Minyan?
A: We have Davening together Friday night, Shabbat morning, and on all the Chagim, & we get a Minyan most of the time.
