Terrace Dining Hall

Terrace Dining Hall features the Kosher Kitchen. The Kosher Kitchen is a dining option with any meal plan. Kosher dining at Terrace Dining Hall is under the strict supervision of Rabbi Eli Siberstein and a staff of Mashgiach. Along with meeting kosher dining requirements, this program also accommodates Halal, vegetarian, vegan, Seventh Day Adventist, and other
special diets.

Kosher food is defined by traditional Jewish dietary laws. It excludes pork and shellfish, some types of meat and poultry, requires that animals be slaughtered in a particular way, and prohibits the mixing of meat and milk. Most traditionally minded, religious Jews observe the dietary laws, though others coming from more relaxed traditions do not.
