Al Habtoor Hotels was the first hotel group to introduce Kosher food and beverage services to its UAE culinary portfolio. Now, they are taking it to the next level by launching their own Kosher Kitchen, certified by the Emirates Agency for Kosher Certification (EAKC) under the resident supervision of Rabbi Levi Duchman.
Starting from AED 150 per person, kosher-observant travellers can now enjoy fresh breakfast coming straight from the hotels’ kosher-certified kitchen, when they arrange their stay at any of Al Habtoor City hotels – in the heart of Dubai. Along with a room reservation, guests can anticipate some classic kosher favourites.
“As the market reopens and the ties between Israel and UAE continue to grow, we are proud to be industry pioneers introducing our very own Kosher Kitchen, following the great success of our previous efforts catering for the Jewish community,” says Fredrik Reinisch, Complex General Manager of Al Habtoor City Hotel Collection.
“We’re delighted to welcome the Habtoor Group into the EAKC family. The UAE is rapidly becoming the leading destination for kosher tourists from around the world. The new kosher Kitchen at the Al Habtoor Group is inspired by the vision of the leadership of the UAE – who promotes tolerance and coexistence, by supporting the needs of all cultures and religions and is the home to over 200 nationalities. Marhaba!” says Rabbi Levi Duchman, Founder of EAKC and Rabbi of the United Arab Emirates.
In complement to its breakfast offer, Al Habtoor City Hotel Collection will also present a room service menu allowing guests for full-board catering arrangements, also including a selection of Kosher grape beverages. Hotels offering kosher in-room dining menus will include Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City, V Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton and Habtoor Palace Dubai, LXR Hotels & Resorts.
And since Dubai is renowned for its world-class events, the Al Habtoor City Collection of hotels can now facilitate kosher catering needs of any scale, allowing for large – or more intimate – groups.
The Emirates Agency For Kosher Certification (EAKC) is the first and only licensed kosher certification agency headquartered in the UAE. Under the leadership of Rabbi Levi Duchman, the Rabbi of the United Arab Emirates, the EAKC is a leading authority across the Emirates for all aspects of kosher certification for restaurants, catering, and food manufacturing.
The Habtoor Hospitality portfolio includes 14 world-class hotels; seven in the Middle East and seven across Europe and the USA, as well as luxury lifestyle destinations including Al Habtoor City and the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club.
