Frum Jewish Kid Spectating the Olympics

Yes, we already all know about Israel's killer-frum-Olympian, Bat-tel the Taekwondian. (note, her competition starts Aug 20th)

But did you know about the frum kid in Beijing who is blogging the Olympics? Yes, he wears pants. Yes, he keeps shabbat. Kosher too.

See the blog of a frum Olympic spectator in Beijing, BarryTime. (link fixed - sorry about that)



Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

Jameel, the link is corrupted. You have an extra %20 on the end.
So, all you thousands of visitors, use this link. Lucky I'm up late.

if barrytime is keeping kosher, maybe he can help get some kosher grub to the israeli team who seems to have a little problem feeding their one kosher keeper....

I thought Beijing had a couple of kosher restaurants? In a country where dogs are considered a delicacy, everyone (Jew and non-Jew alike) should keep kosher!!! :-P

if you read back posts on barrytime's blog, he does show a picture of the kosher restaurant in beijing. he also says that he brought kosher power bars with him.
wish i read that before i posted. does anyone know if he was able to actually pass those power bars on?

No discussion about how frum he really is? How frum can he possible be if he is not in Israel?
