A Hummus Restaurant Is Offering Half Price Meals To Jews And Arabs Who Eat Together

"If there's anything that can bring together these peoples, it's hummus."

Humus Bar is a restaurant in Kfar Vitkin, Israel.

Last week, the restaurant announced on its Facebook page that it would be offering half-price meals to Jewish and Arab diners who sit together.

“If there’s anything that can bring together these peoples, it’s hummus,” Tzafrir said.
