Re: Murphy's law
I've see things go in a good direction even though there was plenty of ways to go wrong.

The fact that I didn't have a heart attack today is not contrary to Murphy's law?
You've never broken a law before in your life?

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now! I think the problems here are

1. People who are quick to judge things just because they are different, or new

2. People not explaining themselves well and just saying "its bad" when they may mean other things.


I myself also think that there is something distasteful IN GENERAL to this whole idea of what Pesach hotels have become. But I think it's  a problem in America in general with the chase for luxury in extreme.  And when you combine that with the idea of YomTov it can sometimes leave you with a bad taste.

I don't have an issue with people doing things different.   Yes, there is something to be said for tradition but as the world evolves we'll always have things changing in different ways to the way things were done.

There are plenty of Pesach programs that are more "heimeish" if you will. And there are plenty of people going to Pesach hotels that are anything but heimish and are still there in the right spirit and I'm sure having a seder just as meaningful as some guy sitting at home.



And as a side note there  are plenty of people who can't make Pesach for various reasons and plenty of people who ONLY KEEP pesach because there are Pesach programs etc.   


I think the issue I have is more with our GENERAL focus of things that shouldn't be our main focus and this 'chase' for bigger, better, nicer that plagues our society at large.  This is just one example of where we see it.   So you have people looking at all the ads feeling like this is all wrong.

And then there folks who just think anything done different than what's always been done is "wrong"  -

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!


I think that a program that could allow for people to do their own cooking with their own food

They have those already. 95% of practicing yidden participate in those actually.

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!
I'll just assume this post was completely facetious and be done. To say that those of us who oppose the hotels, sound jealous... It sounds like you don't understand life because money pays for anything that comes up. Your kids understand preparing for YT because they hear about it from their friends?! Wow.

It was nebech not facetious. Money pays for everything. Of course I'm jealous that i cant lay back and let someone else do the hard work. But I'm also grateful that I can and do contribute. Not only my wife works hard I do too. And when you sit down to the seder with a feeling of accomplishment, there is nothing like it. I cannot imagine what it would be like sitting down after having written that check or swiped that card and not having lifted a finger in preparation for yom tov. I would probably be sick to my stomach. Thats subjective.

Re: Staples:$20 Rebate on $300 Visa Gift Cards 5/21-27 This happened to me last time this was offered - my receipt just had the barcode, with no numbers.   I scanned with my iPhone scan app (you'll find an Android one easily available as well)...the app showed the numeric equivalent and I just keyed that in and the receipt processed OK on the website......
