Doesn't say much about the Rabbonim who do go, does it?

I think that a program that could allow for people to do their own cooking with their own food, would by definition cater to a different kind of crowd, and have a different kind of atmosphere, but this is pure speculation.

I know of a rov/speaker who would go to these programs and part of his deal was that they provided a small kitchen and a private cook to cook for his family.
I cannot and will not judge anyone else (for any price  :) )

On that note, here's a nice piece someone sent me yesterday via Whatsapp:

ר' לייבל שיינין הרב החסידי של דאקשיץ לא היתה דרכו בנשיאת דרשות, אבל בשבת הגדול נהוג שהרב נושא דרשה, עלה על הבימה ואמר: כתוב במשנה שכל מקום שאין מכניסים בו חמץ אין צריך בדיקה. אף אחד לא הכניס אצל חברו חמץ ואין לו מה לחפש אצל זולתו חמץ וירד מהבימה.
That wasn't the whole derosho but a most memorable part of it.

Part of an article written in Yiddish by someone who grew up in the Shtetel where Reb Leib was Rov.

Quote from: Di Yiddishe Heim
ר לייב איז יענעם שבת הגדול אַרויף אויף דער בימה, מיט אַ טלית אויף די אַקסלען, און אָן קיינע הכנות און הקדמות אָנגעפאַנגען צו זאָגען אויף גיך די דינים פון הגעלה און ליבון, ווי צו כשרן די כלים אויף פּסח. וועלכע כלים מען דאַרף אויסברענען און וועלכע סאיז גענוג אָפּצוטונקען אין דעם זודיקן קעסל וואָס האָט פאַר פּסח געקאָכט אין דער טהרה-שטיבל לעבן דער בערעזינע.

מיטאַמאָל האָט ער אינמיטן אָפּגעהאַקט די רייד, און נאָך אַ קורצער הפסקה פון עטליכע מינוט, האָט ער צוגעמאַכט די אויגן, ווי ביים חזרן חסידות, און אָנגעפאַנגן צו זאָגן:

- רבותי, אין דער ערשטער משנה פון פּסחים שטייט כל מקום שאין מכניסין בו חמץ, אין צריך בדיקה... ביי יענעם האָט מען גאָרניט אַריינגעלייגט, דאַרף מען ביי יענעם ניט בודק חמץ זיין; חמץ דאַרף מען זוכן ביי זיך...

ער האָט נאָך עטליכע מינוט גערעדט וועגן דער סימבאָלישער באַדייט פון חמץ און ביעור חמץ, פון אויסזוכן דעם רע און אים מבער זיין, אָבער איז גלייך ווידער צוריקגעקומען צו דער ערשטער משנה און פאַרענדיקט די דרשה.

Assur is a strong word.
