Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Kosher Arabia opens production facility in Dubai

Kosher Arabia, the kosher food production line for United Arab Emirates’ national carrier Emirates, inaugurated a state-of-the-art catering facility in Dubai.

Kosher Arabia, which dedicated the facility on Monday with a ceremony that included affixing a mezuzah, a Jewish ritual object containing a parchment inscribed with biblical verses, was set up following the signing of the Abraham Accords in September as a joint venture between Emirates Flight Catering (EKFC), one of the world’s largest catering operations serving more than 100 airlines, and CCL Holdings.

The kosher catering service was set up in anticipation of the opening of Emirates’ opening a Tel Aviv-Dubai route, which was launched in February. Kosher Arabia also has been supplying freshly prepared kosher meals for the massive UAE Expo 2020.

Located in the Dubai World Center, Kosher Arabia produces fresh kosher food for the travel, hotel, restaurant, retail and event market with a capacity of producing over 2000 meals per shift.

Kosher Arabia is certified by the Kashrut Division of the US-based Orthodox Union,  which will work in partnership with the South African Union of Orthodox Synagogues.

“Four years ago, the idea of Kosher Arabia was born, with the aim to serve the best kosher meals onboard the best airline in the world. This proposition has now come to life. Seeing the facility officially open for operations, I couldn’t be prouder of my association with Emirates Flight Catering and the great Emirate of Dubai,” Ross Kriel, CEO of  CCL Holdings, said in a statement.
