    I find it hard to believe that a Jewish organization is capable of serving a non-kosher dinner, when there is even one person present who eats kosher. Years ago my company sent me from Israel on a business trip to California. At the end of the trip, the (non-Jewish) people threw me a party. When they heard that I ate kosher, they ordered all the food (not just mine) from a kosher deli. I would expect no less from another Jew.

And El Al asking you questions is standard.

    What is wrong with him?
