To celebrate the New Year, with KAHAL's help, I was able to host a Rosh Hashanah dinner with some friends on my CIEE Diplomacy and Policy Studies study abroad program in Amman, Jordan. It was so wonderful that despite there not being a Jewish community here in Amman, I was still able to celebrate with my friends, most of whom are non-Jewish, and share my culture and religious heritage with them. We ended up with a delicious meal of Rosh Hashanah Challah, Kugel, Matzah Ball Chicken Soup, Honey Cake Muffins, Salad, and of course we had apples and honey. It was a beautiful night of celebration and making memories, and everyone left happy and full. I could not have asked for a better way to bring in the new year! Thank you again for making this a possibility!
