Information from our reader MDS:
The name "Eight25" refers to the 08.25 arrival
train at Zurich main trainstation during the early/mid 19th century when
Jews were still forbidden from living in the canton or the city of Zurich.
They lived in village like "Staettels" accross the canton Zurich border in
places called "Lengnau" and "Endignen" which were in canton Aargau.
These Jews wanting to conduct business in Zurich city would arrive every
morning w/the first train at 08.25am and accordingly were called and
(subsequently)called themselves "Achtfuenfundzwanziger" ie.
"Eight-twentyfivers", a term that initially refered to these "indigenous"
Jews from Legnau and Endingen and evtl. became a general term for Jews when
they would converse abt. other Jews, not necessarily wanting to use a more
clearly identifiable title abt. themselves in front of non Jews. It has
remaind a very "insider" type of term for "our crowd"type of people into our
I did not eat at the new restaurant yet, but its cousine is meant to be more
"modern style" thought they are thinking to add the more traditional style
Jewish dishes onto their menu soon.

London neighbourhoods Our family of four is traveling to London in July. We would like to look for an air bnb in a secular neighbourhood within an hour's walk to an Orthodox synagogue. Can you suggest some neighbourhoods for us to try?
how to ship belongings What does Customs allow or what items do they tax heavily. I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me. Want to give out blankets, soup, and bread to poor and shut-in Holocaust survivors too. Have Israeli friends, but don't want to bother them before I visit them. No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.
