FOX Business Network anchor Liz Claman had the honor last weekend of celebrating Shabbat with a few Jewish luminaries before running off to the Google party. Just a normal Friday night in Davos.

Here’s Claman’s reflections on dinner:

Israeli president Shimon Peres is the guest of honor. Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel leads us all in Hebrew songs. Cantor Fitzgerald’s Lutnick, who lost 638 employees on 9/11, is there, along with Israel’s Central Bank Chief Stanley Fisher. President Peres remarks that “perhaps the biggest contribution the Jews have made to the world is their ‘dissatisfaction.’” It is that trait, Peres said, that has pushed them to innovate and create … a classic Davos message.
