Kosher Policy at PTS

Philosophy

The purpose of maintaining a policy about kashrut (keeping kosher) at PTS is to create an environment that is inclusive by being flexible for different levels of kashrut observance. We want people who dine at PTS to feel comfortable with their food options. If you have any questions about how the policy should be implemented, please contact Bev Rochelle, brochelle@sholom.org.

We leave it up to the individual to make the choice, within the following guidelines:

Kashrut for PTS Events
 

  1. No pork, no imitation pork (such as turkey bacon), no shellfish, no imitation shellfish.
  2. If meat is served, there should be a second protein option for vegetarians or others who prefer not to eat meat. Examples include pasta dishes with cheese, fish, or vegetarian main courses.
  3. Both meat and dairy may be served in the same meal, but not mixed in the same serving dish. For example, no cheese sprinkled on salads with chicken, no meat in a pasta with cheese dish. It is permissible to serve meat and dairy in separate dishes, for example macaroni & cheese in one dish and grilled chicken in another.
  4. Servers should be trained by caterers to understand the PTS’s kashrut practices and to know what they are serving to guests.

Kashrut for Catered Private Events

In conversations with private parties, we ask families to be our partners in providing an environment where everyone can feel comfortable eating at PTS.

  1. No pork, no imitation pork (such as turkey bacon), no shellfish, no imitation shellfish.
  2. Servers should be trained by caterers to understand the food & kashrut policy and to know what they are serving to guests.
  3. Follow guidelines 2 & 3 above as much as possible
