Talking of which. The following was posted on a WhatsApp group. I am totally repulsed by it. How low can people go? Recruit the A"R for your business?

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

So Pesach in Crown Heights, if advertised as being close to 770, or in Cambria Heights, if advertised as near the Ohel, would also offend you? The guy invested a lot of money and the only reason to be in that G-d forsaken place in the first place is to be near the Alter Rebbe (A"R is a type of assault weapon AFAIK). So a Pesach program there shouldnt necessitate the mention of the Alter Rebbe. It's zelb farshtendlich.

It wouldn't be my style, but if it the program would consist of השתטחות, I don't think I would feel repulsed. IIRC the ESHEL hotel/hachnosas orchim in Crown Heights advertised in the past Pesach in Crown Heights, but all they offered was lodging and food (presumably at high kashrus standard).

Let's translate some of the text of the ad:

Boutique Pesach [experience]
At the compound of the Holy Tziyun of the Alter-Rebbe, Ba'al HaTanya.

Youre playing semantics. If it said Boutique Pesach Experience in Haditch you wouldn't have had the same problem?

Words matter
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

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.

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.

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.
