"A glimpse into a dwindled and nigh-lost Jewish community of Kabul":
The last Jew living in Kabul, it turns out, trades his mini-business from the only synagogue in Afghanistan. An enterprising man, this Judaic Afghani operating as a peddler of kebabs and coffee out of Afghanistan's surviving Jewish bastion -whatever next, money-lending?
"Kebabs, carpets and flowers are served and sold on the ground floor of the synagogue, which has been transformed into businesses over the last 18 months by the country’s sole remaining Jew, who lives upstairs in a small pink room."
"We have found it - a sofa fit for a Sheikh! If you have a spare €100,000 and fancy sitting in luxury, this is the way to do it.

Qatar has bought in, as has Thailand and Brazil."

"After hearing quite a bit about Newthink Theater, I was pretty excited about attending it for the first time, and boy did it live to my expectations! Even those who attended the first Newthing Theater event said there was much improvement. Anyway, I’m not trying to compare it to anything, I was quite impressed with the event and I found it quite different from the events attended before. It’s new, and it’s different, it’s informative, it’s inspirational and it’s absolutely fun!"
