Ideas for catering a birthday for a Jewish friend?

Hi guys,

A friend of mine has volunteered to cater a birthday party for another of our friend's Birthdays and after some fruitless consultations with the internet - he has asked me if I knew anything about Jewish BDay food traditions - which of course I don't (I'm Buddhist), but I figured where else could i get better food info than from Chowhound - so here I am!

:-)

Are there any traditional foods or special requirements / must haves for such an event? I think the birthday person is "Orthodox" Jewish if that would make any difference. Any advice or recommendations on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
