    It is clear these programs must have bond insurance.

    I’m sorry for all the people that innocently booked with him. He never pays his bills. Look into where he was last year, the year before and the year before that. Then you will know why the Hilton cancelled on him

    I was actually having this discussion with my friend the other day, even with plans to go away regardless of the venue, it’s best to prepare the house clean wise for pesach, your circumstances or the hosts could change even last minute . Prepare enough even for the sake of being yozi

    Hey, you don’t know the full story!
    We all have to remember that all these hotel programs canceling is really all Hashgocha Pratis. All part of Hashem’s Master Plan. Obviously He did not want His precious children
    spending Pesach in these specific hotels.

    May Hashem be preparing us

    It’s a trip well worth it, and with the falling rand it’s very, very reasonable for supmtuous accommodations and programming!

    Why People Go to Hotels

    Many people do not have the luxury of being able to make Pesach at home. There are many people with health or mental health issues where they can’t put their home together and are often not wanted by family members.

    Other people like to focus on ruchniyus instead of cleaning and others look forward to Pesach–our holiday of Freedom as an appropriate time to serve Hashem through the highest level of gashmiyus possible.

    May Hashem help each and every one of these families to get all their money back and have a positive, happy meaningful Pesach this year.

    There is NOTHING more ruchniusdik than cleaning and turning over the house for Pesach – and no better chinuch –
    when you understand the true meaning of chometz. I’m sorry, but “the highest level of gashmius” is not always the best. What do these kids learn? If you need the hotel due to health reasons or family reasons, kol hakavod! But I’m happy my kids have the schus to be home.

    Lol to why ppl go to hotels!!

    Yetsias Mitzrayim is about being able to exit from your “own” limitations. Everybody has their personal mitzrayim to get out from.

    Ridiculous

    While I am sorry that the hotel has inconvenienced people’s Pesach plans, this whole story is laughable. There are literally thousands of people who struggle to afford the basic necessities for Pesach and the elite class are complaining that their luxurious hotel getaway Pesach experience has been compromised. Honestly, all that money should be donated to families in need, and that would save many people a headache.

    do Lubavitchers go to Pesach programs?

    Hey hey!
    Guest
    Hey hey!

    Even though I could afford a luxury pesach getaway or to stay at home and hire a chef, I don’t!!! Y??? Because pesach we try to continue the minhagim, to b machmir!! And we do it happily!!! Yes I hire more housekeeping help, and the kids help!!! But it doesn’t mean that everyone is like that!! I know very normal healthy families, that need the program and structure that they get in the hotel!! And I mean SPIRITUALLY!!! If they stay home they might not experience pesach!! So let’s not be so judgmental!!!

    B”H I think this is sad, however it is not a tragedy in my opinion. The way I look at this is that it is an inconvenience that it’s not a physical sickness I hold that IT IS NOT A TRAGEDY. A none physical problem is not tragic. Yes it’s a sad thing that the Hilton Hotel would choose to cancel something like this and it is really a hardship and plenty of trouble for the families involved. Their are also probably 2 or more sides to this story. My opinion is this problem can in NO way be compared… Read more »

    Really?

    Everyone who is so quick to judge has to understand that there are still these hundreds of people left stranded so close to Yom Tov. That is very sad.

    AND THE LESSON IS?
