Kashrut

The Bayit Kitchens are kashered by Rav Dani Epstein and Rabbi Josh according to Strict Orthodox halachic standards. Some basics will be brought from Israel, the rest is purchased at the Kosher Supermarket in Geneva. Fruits and vegetables are purchased locally. We will also be following the kosher products list put out by the French Rabbinate. One of the KSA group activities is the cooperative cooking and preparation of the Shabbat meals. Participants are also invited to volunteer to prepare a favorite dish to be shared at one of the meals during the week.
