Cross-Currents Live!

In a manner of speaking. And only if you have Pesach free, and some discretionary funds available, and a spouse who really wants to go.

In other words, if you really want to argue the points of the last umpteen issues of Cross-Currents, you are invited to join the Adlersteins at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, where I will serve BE”H as Scholar in Residence for the upcoming Yom Tov.

The facility, I am told, is top of the line. Despite misgivings about leaving home for Pesach (we haven’t done this in years, but simply can’t fit our crowd into our small home), we have managed in the past to rescue a good deal of ruchniyus amid the opulence. We would welcome fellow travelers.

    Rabbi Adlerstein, there’s a lot about this that makes me think that maybe it would have been better kept to yourself. Or maybe I’m just jealous that nobody ever invites “resident accountants” for Pesach… ☺

    [YA – I guess we could say that accountants get salaries and few perqs. Rabbis get small salaries but occassional perqs]

    I haven’t left E”Y in years. If you are ever coming, I would love to see you or hear a shiur or lecture by you. Pesach I spend with some cross-section of my B”H family. I thank the KB”H for having brought me from a kid with a suitcase 43 years ago to a family with our 7th out of 8 kids about to be married and lots of grandchildren. I won’t be going to pricy lodgings for Pesach. I will be baking matzo with friends in the yishuv and maybe also with other friends in Yerushalayim.

    You won’t be able to say: “Comments are closed,” like this web site often does.

    [YA – 1) I (almost) never say that 2) True, but the moderator can always decide to move on to the next person]

    Hmmm…YA, Daniel Lapin and Dennis Prager?

    Hope they have a Tea Room big enough for all the Tea Party folks.


    [YA – No problem. I am going to be the token liberal]

    We’ll just pull our sin out of yeshiva day school so we can afford to join you. Or maybe we should ask for a scholarship??

    [YA – I do hope you pull your sin out of wherever you have it stored 🙂 You must have very low tuition there in Teaneck if pulling a child out of school will only recoup for you the cost of one upscale resort for Pesach. Do that in some other schools, and you can buy a new family van.]

    The Adlersteins may not have gone away for Pesach for years, but as I recall one of the times you did go away resulted in a wonderful shidduch for your son.

    [YA – BH. We won’t mind a repeat of that for a younger sibling this year!]
