One of our kitchens is specially equipped for preparing kosher meals. Every day we seal a large number of cold and cooked meals with the Hechsher, the certificate that ensures the meal has been prepared under Rabbinical Supervision. The laws of “Kashrut” include a comprehensive legislation concerning permitted and forbidden foods.
There are several aspects to these dietary rules
- According to the laws of the Torah, the only types of meat that may be eaten are cattle and game that have “cloven hooves” and “chew the cud.”
- Only fish with fins and scales may be eaten, for instance, tuna, salmon, and herring. Shellfish such as shrimp, crab, mussels, and lobster are forbidden.
- Some birds may not be eaten. These include the eagle, owl, swan, pelican, vulture, and stork. Only birds that are traditionally considered kosher, such as the goose, duck, chicken, and turkey, may be eaten.
- According to the laws of the Torah, a kosher animal must be butchered by a “Schochet”, a ritual butcher, before being eaten.
