If you can eat only one meal in Israel, choose breakfast. Preferably at a kibbutz.

If you can’t find a kibbutz, the morning spread at an Israeli hotel should do the trick. This lavish dairy buffet, an event everyone remembers even if the rest of their trip to the Holy Land is a blur, originates from the kibbutz.

Eldad Vezehu, the Jerusalem restaurant famous for French dishes including non-kosher seafood like clams and mussels and meat-and-cheese specialties has decided to change direction and open its doors to the kosher crowd.

In some American cities, kosher food could be considered almost run-of-the-mill to Jews and non-Jews alike. There are more kosher restaurants in the metro-New York area than anyplace outside Israel, and large Jewish communities such as Miami, Florida, London, England and Melbourne, Australia boast impressive lists of kosher establishments.

In recent years, however, kosher food has become something of a fad, even outside “traditional” Jewish quarters. Unlikely locales such as Newport, Rhode Island and Oahu, Hawaii recently celebrated openings for kosher restaurants, and the Orthodox Union recently called on U.S. airlines to offer kosher food for sale on domestic flights. Heck, some people are even getting their pets into the act.
