Speaking of the Kitchen’s founder and CEO Rabbi Dovid Slavin, Hoenig said: “The passion Rabbi Slavin and his wife Laya have for the community is clear. Through Our Big Kitchen they have assisted in the rehabilitation of many prisoners and given them a second chance at life, something that often isn’t a popular topic to talk about.”

Our Big Kitchen is a non-denominational organisation which opens its doors to people from various backgrounds including prison inmates on day release, businesses looking for team building exercises and volunteers wishing to give their time to help others.

Ron Hoenig added: “Not only was the food and coffee wonderful, the spirit of the people giving of their time was inspiring and heart-warming.

I was pleased to see participants learning vital culinary skills and about separate food areas in the kitchen in preparation of kosher meals. It is a great way of giving Jews and Non-Jews alike a community awareness of Kashrut or kosher cooking processes.

Learning of the stories of Rabbi Slavin and his team bringing the community together to assist people in times of crisis is at the centre of what is so good about Our Big Kitchen.”
