Reading the travel news headlines can be somewhat like reading regular news. There are articles that I find sad, articles about places you can practice debauchery and the best places to stay in Colorado if you want to do a marijuana trip. And so today coming across this article on Passover travel made me smile for more than one reason.
The first thing I thought was kind of funny was that the article called this a new trend. And maybe it is in the last couple hundred years. But the first Passover was all about traveling. And good Jews have always loved getting to Jerusalem for the Passover. But even in the Fiddler on the Roof, which took place in the late 1930’s, they were hoping to be in Jerusalem for the Passover.
I do think Jews and other people who celebrate Passover are looking beyond Jerusalem and to other destinations when they want to travel over this holiday these days. Nicer hotels often cater to your needs. You can request a kosher diet. And you can also request a special room for your feast. Please let me know if you are interested in anything like this.
