It’s not every day that we have the opportunity to serve those who have served Israel, but today we had the pleasure to serve a dozen veterans of the IDF. Each year Beit Halochem brings over a select group of veterans to tour and enjoy our beautiful city and province. They visit landmarks such as the CN Tower, Niagara Falls, and of course United Bakers.
Talking with the vets, it’s not readily apparent what experience they endured while serving in the IDF, but what is unmistakable is the positive energy and enthusiasm that they bring to our morning dining room. Their tour culminates on Thursday, June 14th with a Celebration of Life Concert featuring various guest speakers and a musical performance by Cantor Alex Stein.
While at UB, our visitors enjoyed some of our classic dishes including Eggs & Onions, Bagels and Cream Cheese, and, no surprise, our Israeli Salad!
We look forward to many more years of this partnership, hosting the wonderful participants of Beit Halochem and enjoying the spirit and energy that they bring with them.
