A few weeks ago, a wealthy chareidi from overseas stayed briefly at the Royal Beach Hotel in Eilat. He found upon his return home that the hotel had included two of its towels in his laundry. The next time he visited Israel, he immediately sent 110 shekels to the hotel management to compensate for the loss.
The management said that they appreciated his honesty.
“These things are the hotel’s property and people should know that it is illegal to take them,” they said. “People sometimes send towels back by post or send a letter that they took them, but to pay for them is something that happens very rarely.”
