Kosher Certification

Just as a healthy diet is good for the body, so we keep Kosher because it’s good for the soul. In the Jewish home, the table is an altar, the kitchen is a domestic sanctuary.kosher

Keeping Kosher is one the main building blocks for a religious Jewish lifestyle. The various Kashrut authorities in and around London provide a wealth of products, goods and Kosher dining that are certified as being kosher. The Kashrut Division of the London Beth Din (LBD)operates under the auspices of The Court of the Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth and has offices in the UK, Belgium, Singapore and Australia. But we prefer Kedassia, the Kashrut Division of the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations and Adath Yisroel representing the charedi communities in the UK providing a full range of religious educational welfare and communal services for its members. They have been associated with us over several decades and our Kosher Programmes revolve around their accreditation and assocaition.
