Please note: The letter “K” by itself sometimes signifies reliable Kashrut supervision and sometimes does not. Please consult the Rabbi in such cases.Certain foods are presumed to be kosher, and no rabbinical supervision is necessary. Such foods include: • Fresh fruits and vegetables• Most canned or frozen fruits and juices (unless they contain grape juice).• Frozen vegetables without sauces or additional ingredients.• Milk• Eggs
Please note: As a rule, food cooked in a private kitchen may not be brought into the synagogue. Exceptions are made for congregants who maintain a strict level of Kashrut in their home kitchens. Please check with Rabbi Scheinberg if you wish to bring food from your home.
A strict separation must be maintained between dairy and meat foods. Following a meat meal in the synagogue, dairy foods may not be served for at least 3 hours.
There is some debate in the Conservative Movement concerning the kashrut of cheese and wine. In the synagogue, however, we follow the stricter opinion on both of these issues. Cheese and wine must have a hekhsher (examples on the following page) to be brought into the synagogue.
For any questions on our Kashrut standards, please contact Rabbi Scheinberg at Rabbi@hobokensynagogue.org.
