Kashrut Policy - "A Holy Place"

The Or Hadash congregation developed its kashrut policy when it moved into its current building as an attempt to strike a balance between our desire for inclusiveness while maintaining a respect for our tradition. 

The kitchen at Or Hadash is a dairy Kosher kitchen.  Only dairy products and pareve products are allowed.  No meat, meat products or shellfish products are permitted in.  Congregants are welcome to bring in purchased or home-baked goods.  Dairy Kosher and pareve products may be served from synagogue trays.  Baked goods from non-Kosher home kitchens or non-Kosher bakeries are also welcomed, but should be served from their own dishes/containers or on paper goods rather than synagogue trays.  Under no conditions should any animal fat be used in baked goods brought into the synagogue.
