Redditor Sensualsanta works at a Jewish community center. This week, the center’s director delivered the following surprise:
I was eating lunch inside the building when the director of the Chabad approached me and said I was not allowed to eat my food inside the building because it was non-kosher. I was pretty shocked at first and I asked, “where am I supposed to go?” My lunch break is 30 minutes and I am too far from any restaurants. Furthermore, there is no staff lounge or break room, so I was just eating my food at one of the tables in the common area.
I had to eat outside. It was raining and cloudy but I was told I had to eat at a bench outdoors. Well, at least there was a roof over it.
When they hired me they said they wanted to make people feel “welcome,” but [yesterday] I felt so angry and upset.
