Abu Dhabi hotels will soon offer kosher meals
Abu Dhabi authorities have said that hotels should be ready to offer kosher meals and drinks ahead of the first Israeli tourists.
The Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism said that it was committed to serving “all visitors and tourists in the emirate of Abu Dhabi”. The memo urged hotel managers in the UAE’s capital to include “kosher food options on room service menus and at all food and beverage outlets in their establishments.”
From now on, hotels and restaurants should “seek kosher certifications for the handling of kosher meals.”
