Our aim is to enable as many people from as wide a variety of backgrounds as possible to participate in our events, without making sharing food overly complicated or confusing.
For this reason, all our ‘whole community’ events are vegetarian, unless otherwise stated. (We include fish at seder, as other dietary laws might otherwise make catering too restrictive.)
By keeping meals vegetarian we enable most of our members who observe Kashrut in a traditional fashion to eat with us and avoid the need to designate meals ‘meat’ or ‘dairy’.
We also avoid contributing to the mistreatment of animals which is inherent in some animal farming methods in line with Jewish ethics and the likely intent behind Jewish dietary laws.
