High Holidays

Smith kosher dining follows orthodox dietary laws for the High Holidays. The meat kitchen is kashured under supervision and only food approved for the High Holidays is prepared and served.

Please read a message from Dining Services and Religious & Spiritual Life (PDF) outlining the High Holiday religious services and dining options.

Please note: During the High Holidays, any student wishing to reserve meals at the Cutter/Ziskind kosher line MUST fill out the reservation form below.

A Smith student may invite guests to join her at the Passover meal to share and understand the meaning of Passover.

  • Guests who are board-paying students must fill out and submit their own meal reservation form.
  • Guests who are not board-paying students should also fill out the form. Guests can use a student's guest meal pass(es) or pay regular meal prices.

Please note that making a reservation commits you to a meal, as our chef prepares food based on reservations. If you find you are unable to attend a meal you have reserved, please give us at least 24 hours notice by calling Hilary Mikuki at 585-2099 Monday through Friday, or the Kosher Kitchen at 585-2099 on weekends.
