• Recent Top Chef contestant Eli Kirshtein will soon start as “guest chef” at Solo, a kosher steakhouse in Manhattan. [Eater NY]
• Several Moldovans, led by an Orthodox Christian priest, toppled a menorah in the capital city of Chisinau and replaced it with a cross. (Video included.) [Arutz Sheva]
• A Knesset bill would ban foreigners from owning Israeli newspapers—most notably the country’s second-highest circulation daily, Israel HaYom, which is owned by American casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. The owner of the top-selling Israeli daily, Maariv, is one of the bill’s parliamentary sponsors. [True/Slant]
• 10 U.S. senators, representing several wings of both parties, signed a letter chastising Turkey for the “downward trend of relations between Turkey and Israel this past year.” [Weekly Standard]
