Pesach programming has become more than just an escape from scouring kitchen floors and plastering counter tops with tin foil: it has become a luxury, an art form, which is constantly evolving year after year.
From California, to Arizona, to Miami, to Costa Rica and beyond, program organizers are constantly fashioning programming that captures the attention of those willing and able to pay for them. And as these organizers attempt to one-up their Passover program year after year, there seems to be a direct correlation between their luxurious offerings and the amount of time people spend criticizing them and those who participate:
Have the opportunity to record a song with pop sensation Ariana Grande?
Don’t people have better things to do with their money?
|What you choose to spend $ on should be your business|
What one person decides to do with his or her money should not bear a burden on our lives. Why are we so often bothered by outlandish spending? Surely it’s possible that those who spend on personal luxuries are also contributing equal, if not greater, amounts to philanthropic causes. And even if they’re not, they certainly have the right to spend their money as they please, the same way one might choose to splurge on Mets season tickets, a new car or a once in a lifetime front-row seat to a Billy Joel concert.
