Jewish attendees at the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders conference in Omaha weren’t far from Judaism last weekend, with kosher food, prayer services, study opportunities and a rabbi just a stone’s throw away from the cavernous CenturyLink Center.
Coordinated by Chabad-Lubavitch of Nebraska directors Rabbi Mendel and Shani Katzman, the annual “Berkshire Weekend” program affords Jewish visitors a “Sabbath to remember with Chabad.”
The Chabad center set up shot across the street from the conference at the Hilton hotel, where it hosted Friday night and Saturday prayer services, and offered attendees the option to take part in a communal Sabbath dinner or order kosher meals for delivery to their hotels.
Mayor Jim Suttle was on hand to welcome the guests.
