But was it Kosher?

Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren hosted an iftar dinner at his official residence in Washington on Thursday night.
Around 60 guests took part in the event, including dozens of representatives of the US Muslim community, government officials, congress members and diplomats.

The residence's dining room was temporarily converted into a prayer room – rugs were placed on the floor facing towards Mecca.

Presiding over the kitchens was a chef from one of the many Arab embassies in Washington who made sure the celebratory meal was made in accordance with 'Halal' – Islamic laws.
But was it Kosher? Yes - one does not preclude the other. When I fly any airline except El Al out of London, I get meals from Hermolis which have seals of approval as both Kosher and Halal.

And by the way, when is the Egyptian embassy hosting a seder?

If Israel were to do a Talmud series for Korea (and I would want to be able to watch it, too!), I was thinking Michael Oren would be a good person to present it. HE did a fantastic job out on the West coast standing up to the UCI MSA people, who managed to shut down the event and got kicked off campus for a (very short) time and at UCSD, where he actually got to speak. Or Bibi Netanyahu, if he has time... he used to be on McNeill Lehrer Newshour decades ago and if fabulous in this type of role.
