I only eat matzxah by seder, day meal, shabbat, moshiach seuda.. scam it is.

Just as I dont buy an esrog, I cant accept this gouging... look, if your rich and buy mehudar gasos tefillen I get it.. but dakos should not be more than normal wages... stop trying to get rich off normal folks working their butt's off trying to pay their bills and leading a frum lifestyle.

I dont get along with my father at all but a few things I recall that changed my life, he mowed the lawn and painted a shull in CH free and he always lectured us about "mamon hekedesh" I think I was wasting napkins in the shull?

You got 2 buck chuck, terrenal as we call it 5 dollar feivel.. judaic based items need to come down in price

Not sure what your rant is about but the gaon says you get a mitzvah for every kzais you eat so your really punishing yourself. Anyhow what's this moshiach seudah about  ? is it from menachem mendel or a previous rebbe ?

Not sure exactly what you are saying and your hate seems to at times cloud your ability to properly articulate your feelings.
Either way since you seem to be an expert in the scammy matzo production can you please share which part is the scam exactly?
I hate the prices just as much as the next guy but I like to have a clear understanding of what's happening before I get all riled up

Doesn't look like everyone's prices can be compared to one another. There are many types of matza (whether hand or machine), many companies and factories. maybe post prices on the type of matza bought (eg: shatzer , pupa, kerister,  satmar, chabad crown heights, chabad israel, jerusalem matza, Ukraine , mani, yehuda, strauss, rekusen, horowitz, hadar,geula, Boro park, lakewood, chareidim,  leibers, oat kastenbaum etc and even more....types are regular, WW, spelt and oat.) ..& some pple do hand , some do machine :)

Could you find a more respectful way to ask your question? I suggest that for your own dignity you edit your post, which I have truncated when quoting in order not to repeat.

#1 it hurts my stomach.
#2 simply states it's a waste of $ and terrible social pressure imho, I don't think everyone really believes in these far out chumros that cost $.

Costs go up because people are making more, the esrog business is a cash cow and I oppose that. Worse yet, more chumros are shoved in jacking up the price. Where you once bought a lulav or hadasim, now you buy them in packages with hechsherim on it costing $$$. Sure there is a market for it but now it's the norm.

I bet rabbi blumenkrantz would have opposed it, waste of $ and causes people to not bother to learn simple halacha or even mentchlichkeit of helping another.

If you have dough to waste and no time or options to bake chabura etc go spend it.

But I fail to see how costs go up, it's not like they pay the Russian ladies much.

Rabbi wein once wrote how some satmar yungerman were bothering him about some hashgacha aspect and pushing him to hire them for it, he says he went to reb yoel and mentioned this and that it was really not an halachic requirements, so reb yoel said, true but these guys are just married and need parnassah, help them out with a job.

I'm all for gainful employment, but this is crushing the cost of Judaism.

I hear stories about the restaurants with no teuda in Israel that state they are kosher and the teuda is baloney, the mashgichim barely come and often it's no different than mafia you pay protection for nothing *

My post is aimed at the high and rising costs of hand made shmura matzah

I don't think there can be any comparison between the price of Matzah and the price of Esrogim. Everyone knows that the price of an Esrog is EXTREMELY SUBJECTIVE (or as the saying goes, it is determined by the buyer, not by the Esrog). You will never see Esrogim sold by Costco!

Matzah on the other hand has some fixed costs that don't change, and then has variable costs depending on the demands of the Chabura (new Keilim, etc. etc. etc.).

I have resigned myself several years ago to only buy from a Yeshiva Chabura, that way I know my extra $ is at least subsidizing matzos for Talmidim or Staff of a Yeshiva.
