Kosher Co-op Kitchen

The kosher community kitchen (warmly referred to as the "K"), located at Jordan House, is a student-run space (under the direction of Dining Services and the the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life.) that serves as a cooking, eating and meeting facility for everyone interested in the Jewish tradition and community. The “K” model is a co-op and students who participate all play a role in the meal preparation, purchasing of food, clean up and menu planning. Two students are appointed annually to be the coordinators of the kitchen; it is their job to prepare the work assignment schedule for the weekly Shabbat (Friday night) dinner. The cuisine is eclectic, vegetarian (with plenty of vegan options), healthy and, of course, kosher. It is not uncommon to find the space teeming with choppers, would-be chefs, dishwashers, and other helpers on any Friday morning or afternoon.

During the academic year, special holiday events and other occasional Jewish programming activities are held at the Kosher Co-op Kitchen and all students are welcome to attend.

Kosher food is served weekdays at Cutter/Ziskind dining room.
