Kosher McDonalds - Only in Brazil!!

As reported in Shmais, a McDonalds store in S Paulo, Brazil was kashered for the day for what I assume was a fundraising event. The report says that 5,000 members of the Jewish community attended and that over 13,000 burgers were sold. Shmuli Tuvel, a "bochur shaliach" in S Paulo, who hails from Sydney, took lots of of photos of the event - see here.

I think that this is a great idea - although I wouldn't want to be the person kashering the place!
