Kashrus/Kashrut and Kitchen Use
- The sponsor or caterer must inform the shul mashgiach (Judy Haber) of all planned kitchen activities. This will ensure that a Shomer Shabbos/Shabbat mashgiach is available to supervise all kitchen activity. This must be completed no later than 2 weeks before the event.
- The shul mashgiach must be present during all food delivery and preparation.
- The Rabbi or his designee must approve any food items. Sealed packages need to have proper certification and need to be verified by the shul mashgiach. For all other items, please contact the office to arrange a time to meet with the Rabbi or the shul mashgiach to have the items checked. Please see the Rabbi for more information.
Use of the kitchen facilities
- Only fleishig or parve dishes can be prepared, cooked, or stored in the shul kitchens. Items prepared with shul utensils will be considered fleishig, even if they are made with pareve ingredients. The only exception is that dairy items in a sealed container may be stored in a refrigerator or freezer and may be placed on a covered counter.
- NO open food packages, cooking implements from home, or items with broken Vaad Hoeir seals will be allowed in the shul kitchens under any circumstances. The only exception is Vaad-certified parve pots, pans, and utensils can be used in the kitchen so that the food can be served with dairy items brought into the hall.
- NO ready-to-eat foods or dishes of any kind are permitted in the shul kitchen unless they are under Vaad Hoeir approval.
- If you plan to use the kitchen to prepare your own food, you will need to reserve the dates that you will need the kitchen. This is to avoid any scheduling conflicts between events. The online calendar shows confirmed events, but please call the office in case other dates are reserved but not yet committed.
- Once the event is finished, it is critical to remove leftover food as soon as possible. We ask that all leftovers are removed within 24 hours of the event (or the first day after Shabbos/Shabbat or Yom Tov). Any food that is not removed will be disposed of (by donation to the needy if possible). If we have to dispose of the food, you will be billed for extra custodial time at $15/hour. Remember, if there are open or unsealed dairy items, they cannot enter the shul kitchen. All other items must be removed immediately from the premises or put in the garbage.
