Last Tuesday UJS President Joe Tarsh, UJS Israel Engagement Officer Beca Bookman and Shlicha (Israel Emissary) Orly Goldschmidt travelled up to Birmingham to put on a great chocolate tasting evening that explored the incredible impact that chocolate has had on Israeli culture and society.

Students looked at how the chocolate industry has developed and ate their way through history until arriving at the modern day. They ate their way from the first chocolate factory Elite, which was set up in 1934, to the gourmet chocolate brand Max Brenner, which is taking the entire world by storm.

The whole evening was enjoyed by all, especially Joe Tarsh, who, when asked for a quote simply said, ‘#AllaboutthePesekZman’.
