Argentina to provide kosher food to hospital patients


BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (JTA) — The Argentinean National Ministry of Health signed an agreement to serve kosher food to hospital patients that request it.

The agreement signed Wednesday by Minister of Health Juan Luis Manzur and the Argentinian Jewish political umbrella DAIA creates the service that will be available in every public hospital in the country.

Beginning Thursday, the National Ministry was set to register requests for kosher food by patients requiring hospitalization.

DAIA is also advancing another project which would provide spaces in Argentinean airports for Jewish prayer, much like the spaces provided for Christian travelers wishing to pray.
