They will stay in fine accommodations and be treated to Kosher Israeli food and guided luxury transportation throughout the trip.

And you shall not covet your fellow’s wife, you shall not desire your fellow’s house… (Deut. 5:18)
We understand why God commanded us not to steal or to kill; after all, it is physically possible for a person to refrain from performing such crimes. On the other hand, jealousy is an emotion and is an integral part of human nature; when you see something you like – you desire it. How can the Torah forbid something so natural as to desire someone else’s possessions?
