What a ganev. Wonder how he escaped jail the first time 16 years ago.
Not every civil case is pursued in criminal court if payment is made.

For those I interested I am at This resort although not part of the Pesach program. Although it is true there are some very dishonest people there are also mostly wonderful Jews. The other Jews in the resort offered help immediately with food of every kind. The managers and staff from the program stayed on for free and had several meetings with the group and with other Pesach programs in the area who provided help and expertise. Some hidden even paid for the villas so that everyone could stay where they were. At the end of the day I witnessed how wonderful the Jewish nation is and how fast we are to help another Jew in need. Boruch Hashem the management and staff has figured out how to continue the program (with several adjustments) until the end of Yom Tov. Mi K’amcha Yisroel!!!

Which goes to show that the vast overwhelming majority of Jews will do the right thing, and go out of their way to help other Jews who are in a difficult situation.

Probably will never happen but it would stop a lot of crisis' if programs would split the hotel charge from the catering charges and have the guests pay the hotel directly for the room.
Live forever or die trying.

Wouldn't happen because then programs won't be able to charge as much.

Exactly. Crazy that new shutdowns seemingly happen every year.
I'm enjoying Pesach at home. A basement Pesach kitchen was a small investment compared to these programs.

Not so sure, people are not oblivious to the fact that that the programs are making a mint, just look at the cost of the rooms a week after Pesach. People know they are paying for the program, not for a room. Again I don't think it will ever happen, but perhaps if someone wants to start a program they can use it to build trust.

If someone wants to be a crook, they can do it a 100 different ways

Agreed, this will give guests peace of mind when trying someone new, not necessarily a crook. And if they get unlucky, at the very least they will have some room insurance for the same price.

I dont understand pesach kitchens in the basement. It's not insanely annoying to carry all your food up and down all pesach?
I'm not who you think I am.
