Are the Kosherica Pesach programs still officially on? They are being very quiet about their plans.
Is any program still on? One program in italy refused a refund/credit to a friend claiming he is still on.

How will your friend prove that the program is no longer opening?

Call/email the hotel hosting it, ask for an official statement that they can't host the program. If they are not updated today, in a week they will be.

News from Eretz Yisroel is that several Sefardic Rabbis gave a one time heter to use Zoom so elderly people can participate in a seder.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

There's an updated version out there with additional signatures.

There is no way any rav, considered mainstream chariedi, will sign such a  hetter.
Have you heard of ANY of these "Rabbis" before????
None of Chacham Ovadia Yosef's children signed, no one from the Moetzes Chachmei Hatorah, not even from the Chavrei Moetzes Harabanut Harashit L'Yisrael!!!!!!!

You need "shoulders" to start with hetterim like this, its not for the Ram in some Yeshiva to sign on, or the Mara Dasra of some small Yishuv, or the Rav of a Beit Knessset.

Do you know Rav Abergel?
A small yishuv?
They are all Rabonim from North Africa, not the same area where Ovadia yosef comes from.

Not gonna disparage anyone, but Id like to see someone like Rabbi Shlomo Amar (also Moroccan) on it.

Rav Mordechai Eliyahu came out strongly against it, along with Tzhoar rabonim....

You're funny, you wanted the previous version with all the signatures... Comes out I sent first the updated one.

Little did I know. I saw a different version than the one you posted, and since it had more signatories, I assumed it to be a later version.

I just found this news item about the retractions.
