hotel reasons
April 7, 2017 3:36 pm

many go to a hotel because it is the one chance a year bubbe gets to be with all her grandchildren.

#21 is 100% CORRECT

The “reasons” people go to a hotel is avoid work – and so they can eat hamburger buns and pizza. Not good chinuch.

Pesach Programs
April 6, 2017 7:43 pm

Dear Yidden,
I am B”H making Pesach at home, still for thousands. While a program is not for me, there are many reasons why a family might choose that. Frankly, it’s not your business. Instead of using someone else’s tzaar as an opportunity to push your opinion, be a mentsch and empathize. And if you can’t, then just be quiet.

Go to Thailand
April 6, 2017 6:29 pm

Go to phuket Chiang mai, Kos o mui join pesach with the Chabad houses very cheap holiday beautiful resorts
Thailand would be the best place for last minute solutions

That's what you get for being lazy

21 is 100% right 3 progress cancelled you should be in a hotel for Pesach

We are chassidim....

And shouldn’t be judgemental!

Oy! Painful. Sorry for all the pain…hopefully something very good will emerge from all the ‘tzar.’

Please
April 5, 2017 1:40 pm

Do not be so judgemental about why people are or are not going to hotels for pessach. Some may not have family and do not relish the idea of staying home for a Chag such as this on their own, others may have received tickets and hotel registration as a gift (a couple I know), others have other reasons. It’s nought to do with any of us the reasons wherefore one might be going but rather if you know someone who now finds themselves in difficult circumstances for Pessach due to such a happening maybe invite them over for a… Read more »

What do people do about air fair paid or even how can one afford to make Pesach without much time to prepare?

Glad you’re a proud mom of a big family, truly. And making pesach at home would be best. But there are those who are not proud moms of a big family and do not want to be a kol dichfin at someone else’s family table. So they have no choice but to find some less than perfect yet costly alternative.

Wow
April 5, 2017 10:57 am

This is going to hit Pesach hotels in the future. Who would trust any of them. Glad we decided to stay home this year. For the 12k we saved ( for 2) we can take 3-4 great vacations. Who can eat that much food anyway.

Maybe there is a lesson to be learned here
April 5, 2017 10:53 am

Stop being a sell out and thinking that Pesach is about luxury vacations and make a real Pesach with your family in your home and experience yetzias mitzrayim al manas to enter eretz yisroel not al manas to enter materialism.

#20 oh stop it mom
April 5, 2017 10:50 am

If someone offered me a place in a hotel for half price i’d cancel on you so fast the charoishes would still be moist.

April 5, 2017 10:27 am

A HOTEL IS NOT A PLACE LUBAVITCHERS SHOULD BE MAKING PESACH ANYWAY.

At least they got a week notice. One time a program was cancelled Erev Pesach as people were arriving @ destination.
It was discussed afterwards on Zev Brenner radio program.

The brummers comeback
April 5, 2017 6:48 am

2 birds in one
Indeed the tuscany hotel is completely filled up
Brummers business almost crashed
They asked rabbi knyesky for a brocho
And they have no rooms available
Menachem and itzhak brumer are a very close friend
We wish them all the success
And their customers should a enjoy a pessach kosher vessameach
In the other hand the greek hotel enterpreteneur
Closes phone and mail and facebook and disappeared with all money
I have friends that beside the issue where to stay
They do not money for the chag

Prime in california has also cancelled

question
April 5, 2017 6:01 am

what happened to “pesach misht men zich nit”

@ #9
April 5, 2017 3:31 am

How do you make Pesach in 1 week especially when all the money you scraped together for yom tov won’t be refunded till after Pesach? How do you pay for all the food you need to buy thinking it was already paid for.
And what​ about those who are too old or frail, and dont have family to go to. What are they supposed to do now?
I feel so sad for them. Hope they all have friends who can stretch their tables to accommodate them

Passach program one thing now what about [email protected]

a bit funny
April 4, 2017 11:28 pm

the first (who apparently didn’t know that the second canceled as well) offered his guests the option of going to Greece (program 2 to cancel as well…) not knowing they canceled as well …

super complicated biz…very few make it….

One who know a ton about Pesach programing…

Better stay home
April 4, 2017 9:53 pm

It’s not right to cancel last minute – at least IM offered solutions.

Shliach
April 4, 2017 8:43 pm

So sorry for guests who had this happen to them and all owners and employees that probably badly needed the money which won’t be making it. Truly sad. However, G-d bless the owner of the latter hotel which had the humility and honesty to place blame on himself for failing to sell enough spots. Takes tremendous guts and if he brings this honesty to his future ventures he will ultimately succeed in his long term business portfolio.

Better yet, make Pesach AT HOME.

Is that a foreign concept to you?

So sad

Very affordable but luxurious Pesach hotel in Johannesburg. Contact Batya Shaffer Kievman at [email protected].
Accommodations are beautiful on beautiful grounds; wonderful program, fantastic food with all hidurim.

South Africa
April 4, 2017 8:24 pm

There’s another program in South Africa that’s beautiful and well organized. Also comes out cheap considering the exchange rate.
Rabbi is Ari Kievman (find him on Facebook for details)

Call Pinny Andrusier
April 4, 2017 8:03 pm

If your hotel was cancelled. Call Pinny Andrusier quickly. He may still have availability.
This is not being sent from Pinny but from a random Lubavitcher. Promise. Just trying to help everyone out.

Two birds with one stone
April 4, 2017 5:31 pm

The hotel in Tuscany could be filled by the greece customers

I'm sorry
April 4, 2017 5:29 pm

Thats very disappointing, my pity to all those who had reservations, but then went up in smoke!! MOSHIACH NOW, THIS YEAR IN YERUSHALYIM HABNUYA BE’KAROV MAMISH!!
