Not saying it's ok, but seems to me the same as advertising a hotel a short walk from the kosel
No.

They aren't saying short walk or nearby. They are saying קריית רבינו הגדול.. מזמינה אתכם. And they are saying it's the Tziyun compound.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It could have definitely be worded differently.

For example:
בית חב"ד האדיטש מזמין אתכם לחוויית פסח
and even if they would add there סמוך לציון רבינו הזקן, it wouldn't be as distasteful as it is now.

I've never been there, but from what I understand the actual tziyun is quite a walk down towards the river.

Pesach in Mezhibuzh or Barditchev or Lizhensk. Come on. Get with the program. Words dont matter. The name of the place said it all. At least he's not advertising soem of the other garbage thats out there.

You're right, didn't notice the מזמינה אתכם

Is that a euphemism for "you need to be desensitized?"

And is anyone actually advertising Pesach in any of the 3 other locations you mention?

I can't imagine anyone advertising Pesach in Lubavitch (as in: Lyubavichi, Rudnyansky District, Smolensk Oblast, whereas most people would understand Pesach in Lubavitch to be in the vicinity of 770). Or for that matter in Rostov, or Nezhin.

If it would have no reference to the Tziyun, I wouldn't view it as any different than any other Pesach program.

Ukraine is cheap, which could be a reason for people to go there for Pesach programs, but I doubt the weather is too good. So they needed to find something else to draw crowds? Distasteful.

Contrast the one that I found repulsive, with this one:



They are advertising excursions to Hatditch, Mezhbuzh (grossly misspelled), and Barditchev, but it's worded and framed very differently. Not my style, but not at all repulsive.

Crazy to me how Tel Aviv makes this top ten list when it doesn't really compare to the type of cities listed.
