I guess if you make a million dollars a year, blowing a few tens of thousands on Pesach is really not a big deal. It’s a matter of proportion. But then I start to think that judging by the number of these programs, there must be plenty of millionaires in our community (baruch Hashem!), and I start to wonder why are our yeshivos all struggling for cash. There is obviously something wrong with my hashkafos because every one of these programs has a litany of Rabbis offering lectures and shiurim and daf yomis -- not only do they approve, they participate.
I've posted about this in the past and realize it is a lost cause. The trend is to offer more luxury to the kosher consumer, not less. My hunch, though, is that you won't find someone who knows Ketzos sitting on a beach in Cancun -- it's a delusion to think you can live in both worlds.
