At the Humus Bar, Arabs and Jews who eat together are given 50% off
An Israeli restaurant decided to give a 50% discount to Arabs and Jews who eat at the same table, in order to promote reconciliatioon and soften racial tensions.
At the Humus Bar there are no Arabs or Jews, but just half-price delicious hummus and falafels. The restaurant, in the Kfar Vitkin village, located near the coastal city of Netanya, invited on its Facebook page Arabs and Jews to share their table in order to have a 50 per cent off deal on the lunch price as well as a refill of chichpea hummus for every tablemate. According to the restaurant’s owner Kobi Tzafrir, this dish can bring together the two peoples.
“Scared of Arabs? Scared of Jews? By us we don’t have Arabs. But we also don’t have Jews… By us we’ve got human beings! And real excellent Arab hummus! And great Jewish falafel! And a free refill for every serving of hummus, whether you’re Arab, Jewish, Christian, Indian, etc” the restaurant page reads.
Arabs used to attend the restaurant even before this special prize, since they come from a nearby Palestinian village. “A lot of customers now say they have seen the post and they tell me they’ve come to support the idea. Some Arabs come with Jewish friends, some Jewish families come alone. They’re all saying good things”, Tzafrir told Al Jazeera.
The initiative has proven immediately successful and the restaurant owner declared that there were people who took up the offer as well as mixed tables who paid the full price to support the initiative.
At least 44 Palestinians and eight Israelis have been killed since violence broke out in the beginning of this month with Israeli raids into Al-Aqsa compound, Jerusalem, Islam’s third most sacred place.
The idea of this hummus café is that of contributing to restore peace and to reconcile people. A small step to bring people together through conviviality.
