The High Roller Holidays

Just in time for the High Holidays, Temple Emanu-El in Miami, Florida, tried to sell two (count ’em, 2!) lifetime seats in the synagogue on eBay for $1.8 million but for some reason didn’t get any takers. A shame since they were in good seats (“Section DD, Row 1, Seats 1 & 2. Right in front of the Rabbi!”), included free parking, custom-made prayer shawls and yarmulkes, and the family name would be engraved on the seats. It’s actually not a bad deal when you realize the Belz hassidic synagogue in Jerusalem is charging $50,000 a seat, and that’s just for the 2007 High Holiday season. If tickets to holiday services cost that much, how much do you have to shell out for a seat in heaven?
