Rabbi Yaakov Eisenstein (R) supervises the preparation of food Elli’s Kosher Kitchen, in Dubai, on October 5, 2020. – Elli Kriel is the pioneer of kosher cuisine in the Emirates, after moving to Dubai eight years ago from South Africa and realising she needed to find kosher products for her home kitchen. She has been running Elli’s Kosher Kitchen for the past two years, born out of the need for Jewish travellers to remain observant while in the UAE. Her business got under way in November 2018 when she was asked to provide meals for rabbis attending an interfaith meeting in the capital Abu Dhabi. (Photo by GIUSEPPE CACACE / AFP)
