Eating Mexican in Mexico

First, muchas gracias to the Jewish community of Guadalajara for their hospitality the last two days. Rabbi Joshua Kullock and the Conservative community hosted us for a pre-fast meal and Kol Nidre on Sunday night, and Fanny Mizrahi and the older Orthodox community took care of us on Monday and for the break fast. I’ll bring you the story of these two communities shortly, as it speaks to both the particularities of Mexican Jewish life, as well as the broad challenges facing smaller Jewish communities. 

But first, since I have food on my mind, here’s a little story about a Jewish reporter with a hankering for some kosher meat.
