We believe keeping kosher during your time at school should be easy and rewarding.
You’ll be surprised at how much simpler it is than you think. Kosher food is provided several times a week.

Kosher throughout the week:
We offer Shabbat dinners, weekly Thursday brunches, weekly Torah classes, and usually a social event with food roughly every other week. This covers nearly half the week. We place weekly orders from larger kosher supermarkets in the suburbs.
If you need an order picked up, we can have it delivered to campus.

We offer holiday dinners for all major Jewish holidays (Yomim Tovim): Rosh Hashana Dinners, Pre-Yom Kippur and Break the Fast, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Chanukah & Purim Parties, Passover (see below), and Shavuot.

Passover Meal Plan:
For students staying in town over Passover, we offer kosher-for-Passover lunches and dinners throughout the holiday. Aside from Yom Tov, food is delivered to campus daily, and we will be offering both seder dinners and seder plate kits "to go." The order form is available as of April 1.

Kosher in DC:
DC has two glatt kosher restaurants certified by the Va'ad of Washington, along with delis at both American and George Washington Universities. Additionally, there are restaurants and large kosher supermarkets in the suburbs that deliver, as well as large kosher selections in the local supermarkets.
