Kosher rules for Temple Beth Israel

Guidelines for respecting the kosher laws of the Temple

You MAY NOT bring into the Temple any foods that are or contain:

  • Meat or meat by-products, including lard and gelatin (For the sake of simplicity Subud has decided to abstain from eating meat in the Temple rather than to observe the separation of meat and dairy.)
  • Seafood without scales or fins, such as lobster, shellfish, squid, flounder

You MAY bring into the Temple eating areas foods that you make or buy that are or contain:

  • Eggs and cheese
  • Milk, cream and other dairy products
  • Fish that has both scales and fins, such as tuna, salmon, whitefish (fresh or if canned, marked kosher)
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Grains, beans, and legumes
  • Coffee and tea
  • All seasonings and herbs

You may bring into the kitchen ONLY items that have not been in contact with utensils in your house:

  • Raw foods as listed above (with the exception of cheese)
  • Unopened packaged food marked with a kosher symbol
  • Foods bought in a kosher market
  • Utensils that are new or belong to the Temple

Please do not bring any food into the Temple during Passover, April 5-13 inclusive.
