Pesach

If Camp SOY were to go somewhere for Pesach, where would it be? Miami Beach to catch some sun? Poconos- to catch some food? Israel-to catch some Torah? Florence- to get away from Jews?

All I know is that if I could do it all over again, I'd go to Russia for Pesach on one of those programs. For one, the food can't really be much worse than regular Pesach food. Two, I could really sound very impressive at work if I had "extensive travel to Russia" under my belt. They relocate people for a quarter million dollars to get experience in "emerging marketplaces."

Darn. And I missed out on the coed trip thing too.

There are Jews in Florence - I've met them and gone to their Synagogue (NOT shul). And if you want to enjoy good food on Pesach, there's only one way to do it...become Sefaradi. Oh, wait! There's another way....but it might involve Karet...

You mean kareiS? I don't think a word like "shul" is in the Sefaradi tradition, so you may as well be consistent.

WillWorkForFood, I believe theFavorite was EXCLUDING the word Shul from the Florence/Sefardi community. This time I'm calling you on your error. TheFavorite - Does Florence have nice beaches? That would keep me busy while you went shopping. We have to blow the Seforim Sale money somehow...

I see, I misunderstood, i thouoght that she was just saying they weren't religious, because any religious synagogue is clearly a shul...

Isn't "shul" a Yiddish term? TheFavorite or DianaNow what is the Sephardi equivalent?

How about "beit k'nesset", you know, that place where Jews gather to talk...

Alas, Josh, the city of Florence is landlocked. Anyways, I would do my shopping in Milan.

Willworkforfood, I specifically said "NOT shul" to indicate that the congregants there pronounce their Hebrew correctly and follow a far more accurate Jewish tradition than the one followed by those attending the so called "shuls".

WHOA WHOA, settle down kids! No need to get into a Sefardi-Ashekenazi rivalry here because clearly Sefardi's rule...period.

Besides,your all just jealous you're not here with me in Miami soaking up some sun. Josh, the beach is my backyard... I know I'm killing you as you read this in your stuffy Kraft cubicle.

It's not our fault you have to go to shkutzville every year diana, though you seem to be revelling in it. Oh, and enjoy the humidity: has it reached 200% yet?

Hmm, frum girls in bikinis, or non-jews in ill fitting khakis and three year old christmas sweaters? Sounds like a choice between Gehinnom B'Olam Haba, and Gehinom B'Olam Hazeh. DianaNow, thanks for the reminder. I choose...
