I just got back from Passover shopping (I know, I know, I’m running close to the line in terms of timing), and I was shocked by how much it cost. I don’t normally buy strictly hechshered food, so I shop at the Kroger. However for Passover, I went to the local kosher grocery.
How did it get to be this way? It isn’t just Passover food – everyone knows about the costs of day schools, summer camps, Judaica, etc.
Is the cost of living Jewishly a new problem? What caused the development of the current situation?
