Is it just me or does this ad for the Villas near Yerushalayim strike others the wrong way also?
1) Is that really a Jewish "dream"? Is that we Yidden aspire to?To live in a a beautiful house? Since when are our dreams based on such Gashmius?? Does the house come with a lawn, a dog and 2.5 kids? Are we supposed to wash our cars outside of this house every Sunday?
2) Are we Americans first or Yidden first? Why do we care about American Dreams??
I don't think we should live in slums or shacks either, but I think to describe a beautiful house as an American Dream on a Frum Website sounds a little out of place.
