Hey y'all

So, after 8 years of Jewish Community activism in Cabo, we've decided to shake things up a bit. We're going from the mind to the belly!

Don't worry, we'll still be keeping the Synagogue and community services along with the long meditation sessions whilst sitting atop Saguaro Cacti.

But we've officially committed to making history by opening Cabo's first ever Glatt Kosher restaurant right in the heart of Cabo S Lucas, steps from the marina.

Tourists and locals will now be able to enjoy the full Cabo vacation package, enjoying the sun and the beach, while savoring delicious Burgers, Schnitzels, Veggie and Mexican dishes with drinks and all.

The BAJA KOSHER will also include Mexican Judaica, Mitzvahs on the go, a Tefillin stand and souvenirs.

Although the funds collected will pass through Sonia Rodal's US account, they will go directly towards the investment into the Baja Kosher Restaurant. We will share full disclosure with every bit used.

The money that comes in from the restaurant will help support the Chabad Cabo Jewish Center.


So where do you come in?

Well, in order to launch this project, we're going to need to come up with the seed money for the restaurant, $30,000

So we're turning to you, our valued friend and/or supporter and/or random dude who came across this site and isn't quite sure why.

We're asking for you help to be able to cover the costs of renting, building and launching.

Don't worry, we have some awesome rewards to  help motivate your giving.

$2500 - We will name a sandwich or drink after you for 2 years ("So, that'll be a double 'Rosen-Burger' and a fries?")

$2000 - We will film a Mexican Mariachi Band playing a thank you song specially for you. ("Gracias Senor Mendel, la cucaracha!!!"

$1500 - We will name one day of the season after you ("Hi, welcome to Baja Kosher on 'Steven Tuesday', can I take your order?") - Every visitor to the restaurant on that day will also receive a card decribing your generosity.

$750 - You will receive a shout-out on the next Rabbi Benny video. You'll also receive a free Baja Kosher t-shirt and cap

$500 - You will receive a free Baja Kosher t-shirt and cap

$250 - You will receive a Baja Kosher Yarlmuka

$100 - You will get 2 free beers with Rabbi Benny on your first visit to the Baja Kosher

$50 - We will send you a handwritten thank you note and a pretzel.

$25 - You'll get a free drink on your first trip to the restaurant.

$18 - You're name will be hand written and photographed somewhere in the restaurant for eternal grateful mention
(maybe under the tiles)


And finally, the best news, we have a generous anonymous matcher who has pledged to match dollar for dollar, up to $15,000, that means that we only need you to help us raise half of what we are seeking.

So go on, click the donate button and help the Cabo Jewish Center realize its dream and reach its potential.

May G-d Almighty bless you in every way imaginable.

Hi all our amazing friends and supporters,

The day has finally arrived. The overwhelming emotions we have now are surreal, as we are so excited to finally be making history by opening Cabo's first ever Kosher restaurant.

The investment has been made and all the details were carefully planned to perfection.

The place is beautiful. Rustic. Industrial. Artisan Burger Friendly and we could never have made it all the way here without you.

We welcome you with open arms to come join us for a lunch, a dinner, or one of Sonia's world famous coconut chocolate desserts.

Shehecheyanu Vekiymanu Vehigianu Lizman Hazeh!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We look forward to seeing you down in Cabo soon.

Hola to all of our friends and supporters!!

I know it's been ages since we last updated y'all's... But that's because we've been so overwhelmed with all the work involved with opening this food place. Gosh! All those who told us how difficult opening a restaurant was were actually right on!!

But it's been a wild and amazing ride to where we are today: about three or four weeks away from opening our doors and inviting everyone to come enjoy some physical and spiritual deliciousness.

We have bricked up the walls, gotten most of the kitchen equipment, painted and tiled the kitchen, wired the electricity and gotten the wall broken and the door installed.

All that's left now is to install the lights, finish painting, do the last touch ups, pick up the kitchen work-tables, hang up the signs, bring in the furnitue and voila, we'll be all set and ready for opening.

Once again, we are so humbled to be where we are today and words cannot describe the gratitude that we have to all of our dear friends and supporters who have helped us get here.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Now let us know when to expect you guys at the Baja Kosher!
