“With the gracious help and support from KAHAL, I was able to host a fully catered Shabbat dinner for 35 guests in Beijing. What made this Shabbat so special was the fact that I got to bring together a very diverse set of people to enjoy a religious Jewish event. My 35 guests were composed of other interns that were in my internship program and the Israeli Chamber of Commerce internship program, a few of my coworkers from my internship, a couple friends I had made on my exchange program at the London School of Economics that live in Beijing, a few Beijing residents I had made friends with through my time playing basketball on the streets, an Israeli couple traveling the country, and the residents and members of the local Moishe house. Moishe house also helped me bring this idea to fruition by allowing me to host the dinner in their apartment and helping me prepare some of the food. Though, the majority of the food was catered from a local Israeli restaurant called Bite a Pita, having homemade hummus and Israeli salad was a great addition to this vegetarian dinner. The food included, falafel, hummus, pita, different types of salad, mushrooms, fried cauliflower, and marinated bell peppers as well as the necessary Kosher challah and wine for prayers. With great food and even better people this Shabbat dinner was shaping up to be the best ending to my month long stay in China.”

“My last Friday in Saigon, I hosted a Shabbat dinner/Cultural Exchange for my friends on my internship program. Working abroad in Vietnam, all of us were away from the comforts of home and what we knew. As a result, we all bonded fairly quickly and really formed an amazing, close-knit group. My idea by celebrating Shabbat was to share a meal and learn about each other’s roots. I wanted to give back to my friends for making my experience so awesome, by showing them a part of my faith and culture. The participants in my program came from a variety of backgrounds, from Norway, Haiti, to the Philippines and Cuba so it was a Shabbat with an international flare of sorts. Even the meal itself was multi-cultural: we ordered food from the Chabad in Saigon, all kosher of course, but it was prepared by local Vietnamese women working at the center. That open, diverse aspect of so many cultures blending together was really special. I’m incredibly thankful for KAHAL to have this opportunity to share this part of myself with my friends.”
