Good news, bad news re our shul's kashrut policy

Remember this fiasco?

Well, there's good news, as I reported in the comments to this post:

I'm happy to report that another vote was taken two days ago--this time, by the Ritual Committee, instead of the Board--and that policy was reversed. My husband now has the privilege of schlepping to the nearest kosher bakery by subway and bringing home a kosher dairy cake whenever a congregant requests one for a dairy kiddush.

But there's also the not-so-good part:

I'm not sure why that's good. The ritual committee decided that the solution to Kashrut problems is to have your husband do all the work... :)

I think you need to find a new Shul.

True, on both counts. Sigh. My husband does end up with a lot of "privileges." I can't wait until he retires and we move to a more Jewish neighborhood with viable synagogues and kosher shopping within walking distance. Two years, m'dear. Be patient.

What kosher bakery doesn't deliver to a shul?

It seems that there is nothing new under the sun and synagogue life is complicated in lots of places. I thought it was just here. The words may change, but the song remains the same...

TOTJ Steve, my experience has been that, if one wants any food store to deliver, one must either live within a certain "delivery" area, or, alternatively, place an order that's large enough to make an outside-of-area delivery worthwhile (profit-wise) to the seller. When our synagogue places a large order with a kosher bakery or catering establishment, we can, and do, have it delivered. But I doubt that an order consisting of nothing but one 32-dollar cake will suffice. It can't hurt to ask, though.

Techelet, too true. Sigh.
