Kashrut Policy and Kosher Dining FAQ's
Each on-campus dining hall serves freshly packaged sandwiches and salads that can be purchased on any university meal plan. In addition, the C4 Dining Hall (located between the Newing and Dickinson living communities) has a designated kosher kitchen that is home to The Kosher Korner (KK). The Kosher Korner is a full-service station that provides kosher-observant students with Glatt kosher, Orthodox Union (OU) certified meals. Dairy meals are provided for lunch, while meat meals are provided for dinner. The KK is supervised by Rabbi Kellman.
All Hillel events keep strictly kosher. Any food that is present for on-campus Hillel events is either provided by the Kosher Korner (OU Supervision), cooked in our OU-JLIC Directors’ kosher kitchen at home, or purchased pre-packaged from a local grocery store. All pre-packaged food has an acceptable kosher certification as defined by the CRC.
