An organization working to welcome Jewish athletes and fans to this summer’s Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, was launched this week. The group established two drop-in centers where kosher food will be available. It also arranged for Jewish families in Sydney to provide hospitality, including Shabbat meals, for Jewish visitors. Information on the Sydney Olympics Jewish Organizing Committee is available at www.join.org.au/sojoc.
