NORTHAMPTON, Mass.—In a celebration that brings together members of the Muslim and Jewish communities, Smith College will dedicate its new kosher-halal dining room in the Cutter-Ziskind residence at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29.

This year, Ramadan coincides with the Jewish High Holidays, and students are invited to share their experiences and the meaning of these sacred times throughout dinner.

The new kosher-halal kitchen was renovated from existing space and includes separate meat and dairy kitchens, a new dining room floor, new serving stations and equipment for hand washing and preparing meat and dairy products.

Open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and one meal on Sunday, the kitchen will serve kosher meals along with traditional fare. The dining room will be pork-free and meals with red meat will be supplemented by halal meat that meets the highest standards of Muslim dietary laws.
