Although I am Jewish I like Jewish food I could not eat there because now a days the food they described would make me ill even though I am sure it is good, I wonder why they can't have more healthy Jewish food in these times where good health is needed? What about fresh greens,fish, fruits,herbs,seeds and bottled water over the fair served in many Jewish eateries?
