Disney Can’t Hide Their Contempt for Jewish Tradition in Hiding “Jerusalem”
The Disney channel’s In the Nook recently featured a Pesach/Passover special. See if you can spot the reinvention of Jewish tradition they promulgate.
The answer is of course that is not what we say at the end of the Seder. We say “Next year in Jerusalem.”
And others have noticed too.
We are deeply dismayed that #disneychannel is running #Passover PSAs that replace the traditional refrain “Next year in Jerusalem” with “Next year in the Holy Land.” This is a deliberate negation of Jerusalem as the eternal Jewish capital.

There is absolutely no doubt they deliberately altered the phrase because of political correctness and Wokesterism. They do not want to admit that we have been pining to return to Jerusalem for thousands of years (and thankfully many of us made it!).
Do you honestly think if they were running a PSA for Muslims, they would replace mention of “Mecca” with “that crowded place in western Saudi Arabia”?
Note to Disney: Do not dare try to dilute the importance of Jerusalem to the Jewish people. Sure, you are not as blatant in your contempt for Jews and Judaism as times of old, but you are not fooling this proud Jew for one.
