Still a waste of space for something that's only used for a couple weeks a year.
-1K. Unless you're majorly space constrained, it's all the difference in the world in taking the hassle out of the holiday.
And costs less than going to a program one time.

Depending on how big (and where) it is, you might need to kasher your regular kitchen as well. But it's still a tremendous help.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

My parents just converted a medium/large sized walk in closet type of room into a very basic pesach kitchen for around $3.5k. just counters sink and stove.

I see with my own eyes that it took a lot of stress off my mother. And it just makes it easier I'm general for everyone else

For sure, it's a real game changer.

I always thought it was a rampage through a town looking for Jews to beat up and kill. I've read more and seen that, unfortunately, it was much worse than that.

That is my understanding. You think it is appropriate throwing that word around now?

I didn't see it referenced yet, but if it is re Colombia, no question that is at risk of resulting in one. You don't see a rampaging mob there?

The situation at Colombia has been getting worse by the day. I am seeing a difference in the make-up of the crowd from when it started.

Quick question (not directed at you). How is the situation in France? They cracked down heavily on Hamas protests after the first or second week (as opposed to the UK, and also the US). Are they seeing this kind of situation right now (as opposed to the UK and US)? They have a tinderbox there, regardless, but I haven't seen anything in the news, but it could have just been drowned out.

We all have different views. I hope my view explains why I wouldn't use the word pogroms. Besides that, how many non-Jews you think know what the word means?

That is why I asked.
I take it to mean a massacre of people. I can see why one would call Oct 7 one and not just a terrorist attack.
I was hoping to get what it means from a Jewish perspective.
ETA: I went back and looked at that discussion. Let's forget I ever asked.

This is mine fwiw
It is fair to say that the word pogrom has a connotation associated with casualties.
Though thatís probably not completely accurate. Itís more like when there is a mob attacking Jews completely unrestrained by local authorities.

That usually ended with casualtie.

I donít think pogrom is at all accurate for 10/07. It was a foreign infiltration, not a local population.

Pogrom was not always a massacre. It was a violent mob, usually riled up by someone or something, (like going to church on Sundays and being fed stuff about Jews) who then went and targeted Jews with approval or a blind eye from the authorities.

Oct 7th was worse than a pogrom, it was a planned operation, but it definitely had the pogrom element with many non-hamas civilians joining the mob and committing atrocities.

The protests turning into violent mobs that target Jews are pogrom-like. I get not thinking it rises to the level of pogrom because they haven't been as violent as what happened in kfar azah, but when the authorities adopt that attitude it will lead to someone getting killed.

These protests have all the makings of a pogrom, let's ensure the police step in so it remains an exaggeration.

Never thought of that but makes sense.
