Accessable, Sustainable and Kosher; Nourishing the Body and Soul.
Community Kosher was founded on the principle that Kosher Food should and can be widely available to Kosher consumers. We believe that strong community-based partnerships with food providers that share our vision of accessibility and food sustainability, built on trust, can change the Kosher world for the better. All of our restaurants are vegan.
Strict adherence to the Laws of Kashrut are at the center of of our certification. Anyone who eats any of the food we certify should feel confident that all ingredients, procedures and preparations are in compliance with halakha, Jewish Law.
For more information about our kashrut procedures. Please see our FAQs.
While Kashrut certainly permits the consumption of meat, we connect with the teachings of Rabbi Abraham Isaac Hakohen Kook and believe in the spiritual and environmental benefits of meat reduction. As a result, we only certify vegan and vegetarian restaurants which is good for you and good for the planet.
