When people think of religion in Korea, Judaism does not exactly spring to mind. However, over the last decade especially, Seoul has seen demand for Jewish products and food rise, and in 2008 the Chabad House opened in the Itaewon district of Seoul.
"Chabad is a home away from home for every Jew, whatever his or her background. You can come talk to a Rabbi, get kosher food, get religious materials for the holidays, participate in events, practice Judaism and learn more. This is all about having one place to come, to feel more connected and to meet other Jews."
