Kashrut (Dietary Law) Policy
Eating is fundamental to Jewish life. It sustains us and reminds us to
acknowledge God through our blessings, thereby binding us to God and the
Jewish people. Because Congregation Beth Torah strives to welcome all
Jews — including those who observe the dietary laws — we ask that all
members of Congregation Beth Torah, when planning an event that includes
serving a meal in the building, be sensitive to those with different
dietary needs. Specifically, we ask that Beth Torah members abide by the
following dietary rules and guidelines.
• We do not concern ourselves whether the utensils, dishes, stoves,
refrigerators, other appliances, counters, cookware or other implements
used in preparing and storing food are kosher.
• We do not allow the serving of any animal, fish or fowl that the Torah says is not kosher (pork or shellfish).
• We encourage serving kosher food.
• We prefer that all food served be either parve or dairy. When that
is not the case, then there must be sufficient parve or dairy
alternatives so that those who observe the dietary laws can eat without
having to preorder a special meal. For instance, when meat is served,
there must be separately available a vegetarian or dairy option, such as
pasta without meat sauce. Salads and other side dishes should be
plentiful and available separately from any meat dish.
