Kosher Hot Dog Stand a Slam Dunk at Kansas U
January 9, 2012
(JTA) -- Spectators at a University of Kansas men's basketball
game relished the chance to buy kosher hot dogs, selling out the stand
in its debut.
The local Chabad-Lubavitch Center for Jewish Student Life,
in conjunction with concessioner Centerplate and local businessman Jim
Badzin, opened the kosher hot dog stand at the Allen Fieldhouse on Dec.
29, according to Chabad.org. The stand will be open until halftime, according
to the website.
Chabad says it is the first kosher concession at a major
college sports venue.
Hundreds of Jewish students and alumni from around Kansas,
the Midwest and elsewhere attend the popular Jayhawks games, according
to Chabad House director Rabbi Zalman Tiechtel. Nearly 10 percent of KU
students identify as Jewish.
