WATCH: Israeli Judo Team Brings in Shabbat in Abu Dhabi


Israel is currently competing at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam judo competition, the first time in a Gulf country under our national flag.

And there have been some amazing scenes – like the team bringing in Shabbat over there.

Note the person reciting Kiddush is none other than the legendary Or Sasson.

Update: And the amazing scenes did not end there.

That’s Israeli Sports and Culture Minister Miri Regev in the middle.
