Kashrut Policy

As a multi-denominational synagogue, Sixth & I works to accommodate a wide variety of religious practices. We have formulated our kashrut policy (Jewish dietary laws, “keeping kosher”) in order to serve as many of our visitors as possible.

Only hechshered (certified) kosher food is permitted in Sixth & I’s kitchen. If food is prepared ahead of time, it must be sealed with special tape with an OU (or other recognized hechsher) symbol. Under no circumstances is non-hechshered food of any sort, including kosher food prepared in a private, unsupervised kitchen, permitted in Sixth & I’s kitchen.

Vegetarian, non-hechshered food is permitted in the administrative building, including our two multi-purpose rooms, and under certain conditions, in our social hall. Vegetarian, non-hechshered food cannot be served with any of our kitchen utensils, serving platters, or pitchers and is not permitted in our kitchen, including reheating on our stove or washing of dishes in the sink.
