THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF KEEPING KOSHER AT CONGREGATION OR SHALOM


1) Use of our kitchens must be scheduled in advance with the Synagogue office.

2) Only unopened foods displaying a recognized Kosher symbol, or foods prepared by a recognized Kosher caterer are allowed into the Synagogue.

3) Foods prepared in private kitchens, or utensils belonging to private kitchens, are not allowed into the Synagogue.

4) Events held at the Synagogue must designated as either "Meat", "Dairy" or "Pareve" (Pareve=neither meat nor dairy). No event may offer both meat & dairy food.

5) If it is necessary to prepare a dairy event in the ground level kitchen, the preparation tables must be covered with plastic cloths.

6) Every group within our Synagogue is encouraged to have its own cabinet.

7) All reusable utensils must be returned to their correct kitchens and cabinets.
