Where’s the Food?

These days whenever someone mentions Israeli TV shows, the first thing that comes to many people’s minds is Srugim. It is a very good show, and who can’t love a show in which Herem DeRabbeinu Gershom gets mentioned, as was in the last episode. I stumbled upon another show of a different nature, איפה האוכל?, “Where is the Food?” Each episode focuses on a different food, e.g. tomatoes, wheat, chickens, and follows the process from start to finish along with some cooking. It is similar in format to many of the cooking shows that are around these days. This is the first season of the show and the episodes can be found here. There have been some negative (and positive) reviews of the show, but I enjoyed the one on chickens.

    Except that חדר”×’ was invoked, IIUC, to justify a Dat’s insistence that an unmarried couple not sleep in the same bedroom. What on earth was that all about? [I may have misunderstood something – I do better when subtitles, even Hebrew ones, are available.]

    I thought that it was just being used as a figure of speech:

    אתה רציני?

    רציני כמו חרם דרבינו גרשום.

    We need a Rashi on the show.

    That’s what I thought I heard. I’m certainly not conversant with Dati-Leumi slang, but using “רציני כמו חדר”×’” merely as an idiom for “[religiously] very serious” sounds quite odd to me.
