Guangzhou, outside of Hong Kong, hosts the bi-annual Canton Fair (China’s Import and Export Fair) which many kosher observant Jews attend for business. The local Ritz-Carlton has partnered with Hong Kong’s Kehilat Zion Synagogue creating a temporary Glatt kosher restaurant & synagogue within the luxury hotel, known as “The most prestigious and beautiful hotel in Southern China”.
The Canton Fair runs for 3 stages from Oct 15 – Nov 4, however both of these entities will be on property and available to guests between Oct 23 and November 2, 2014. Kehilat Zion Synagogue will facilitate religious services as well as provide kosher dining for travelers at the Ritz-Carlton who make reservations through the shul’s promotion.
Kehilat Zion runs a Glatt Kosher restaurant in Kowloon, Hong Kong open for travelers throughout the year. The shul serves full Glatt Kosher meals over Shabbat at no cost, although reservations are required by emailing Rabbi Meoded.
