I've been having a bunch of conversations recently about Jewish assemblies in schools, partly off the back of my being invited to do the Jewish Hair Workshop in Jewish assemblies by AJ6. Turns out that Aish - which is at best something of a kiruv organisation, all about "bringing people back" - have loads of cool rabbis as well as an in-house chef. And when they do Jewish assemblies, they bring shwarma.

I was at some friends for lunch last shabbat, and I asked their 14 year old why Aish assemblies were so good. "They have free food," he responded. "But," replied his mother, "we have free food here at home, too. Free to you, anyway."
