image for Qatar won't allow any cooked Kosher food and public Jewish prayer

Jewish organizations have said that even though they were promised otherwise, Qatar won’t allow any cooked kosher food to be sold or offered to visitors of the FIFA World Cup.

Sources in Jewish organizations told The Jerusalem Post that Qatar broke another promise to allow Jewish prayer services in Doha during the games, claiming it couldn’t secure this type of activity and then banned it completely.

“They were promised to be able to cook kosher food including kosher meat, but at the moment have only been allowed to sell cold bagel sandwiches,” they said.

“There is no kosher food, there are no Shabbat meals and no public prayer services,” a source said.

Earlier Sunday, the Post was informed that kosher-keeping fans would be able to buy kosher sandwiches in Qatar.

The food includes the baking of the first bagels in Qatar and other ethnically Jewish delicacies.

He declined to comment on the claim that Qatar banned warm kosher food and public Jewish prayer. »
