Kosher Comes to Wimbledon


June 21, 2009

( For the first time in its 122 year history, there will be kosher food at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. Half a million people are drawn to Wimbledon's two-week tennis tournament every year.

For kosher consumers and others who'd like to sample kosher food, Rabbi Dovid and Sora Cohen are offering a hot barbecue and cold sandwiches, as well as traditional strawberries and cream, every day of the tournament.

"When we moved to London to work with students in South London, we didn’t know exactly where we were going to live," explains Rabbi Cohen, who co-directs Chabad of South London Campuses.

"When we found a house just 300 yards from Wimbledon's Centre Court, we knew that we had to do something like this during the tournament."

The Cohen's are also planning an open home Friday night/Shabbat dinneron 26th June, and a special Shabbat program on the finals weekend 3rd -4th July.
