This Shabbat, the Los Angeles based Chai Center of Rabbi Schlomo and Olivia Schwartz is hosting a Shabbat dinner at the Cannes Film Festival at a Kosher restauraunt near the Palais. Sponsored, as it has been for the past six years by Hollywood heavyweights, including yours truly, this has been a well-attended annual Kosher Friday evening affair presided over by Rabbi Mendel Schwartz.

This year the one and only Schwartz pere “Schwartzie” will be doing the hosting honors surrounded by such Chai Center regulars as attorney Craig Emanuel, producer Scott Einbinder, and entrepreneurs Max Gottlieb and Steve Kaplan among others. There is even a Lubovitch of Cannes who will join in the festivities.

Rabbi Schwartz came to visit me yesterday to seek council for Cannes as I had been there a few years ago with Craig Emmanuel’s clientTom Hanks and Alfred Molina. I had two choice tips…1) hold court at the Carlton Hotel, stay close to Craig Emanuel who knows everyone worth knowing at Cannes, and have fun!
