Miami Herald, January 28, 2009

The Jewish Hospitality Rooms at Aventura Hospital in New York cater to Jewish visitors who need a place to pray, eat kosher food, or rest while waiting to see a friend or relative. The rooms are open to all Jews, observant or not, and are filled with everything from prayer books to prayer shawls, known as Tallit. The room's amenities also include copies of the Torah and a fridge stocked with kosher food.
