Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice-chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, has been scheduled to deliver several major addresses during the Pesach holiday (April 22—30) at the Majestic Retreats Pesach program at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando. Mr. Hoenlein will discuss the state of world Jewry and his recent visits to Israel, Egypt, and Turkey as part of his review of the state of Israel’s relationships in the region. He is also expected to take an advanced look at the upcoming presidential election in the U.S. Unlike most other Pesach programs, which require the hotel to kosher their kitchen for the holiday only, the Rosen Plaza Hotel recently launched a year-round kosher 5,000-square-foot kitchen, under the supervision of the Orthodox Rabbinate of Central Florida and the Orthodox Union.
Mr. Hoenlein is to be joined by a group of other prominent scholars-in-residence, including Menachem Lubinsky, a leading marketing expert. He is currently driving the efforts to preserve and develop Har HaZeitim in Jerusalem. Elisheva Wolner, LCSW, a recognized expert in treating children, adolescents, and adults with eating disorders and other mental-health issues, and Rabbi Ari Lamm, the resident scholar at the Jewish Center on the Upper West Side, will also participate in the program.
For guests at the Pesach program, Avi and Shneur Faskowitz of Majestic Retreats promise an unprecedented magnificent culinary experience. “In addition to our reputation for first-rate food, the Rosen Plaza features several world-class chefs who will bring their culinary excellence to the Pesach program, all under the strictest kashrus standards,” said the brothers. There will be a fully stocked tearoom and even a special tearoom for children. In addition, the celebrated chefs will offer barbecue nights and special theme nights.
Guests wishing to enjoy some of the world-famous theme parks in Orlando will receive special discounts. There will also be an exciting program at the hotel, including world-renowned comedian Joel Chasnoff, the Chicago Boyz Acrobats, a surprise concert, extraordinary mentalist Alain Nu, a petting zoo and pony rides, daily kids’ entertainment, tennis, golf, and spa discounts that are part of the Rosen facilities. For a short time, Majestic is offering two free flights per room, based on full room rate (limited availability). Majestic will also be offering a nursery, as well as teen and full day camp, even on chol ha’moed. To contact Majestic Retreats for reservations, please call 800-672-6060.
