Kosher Food and Judaica

Whether you love to cook or just like to eat, this is the page for you. Jewish food conjures different images for different people—from brisket to hummus, kosher schmaltz (rendered chicken fat) to creative kosher for Passover recipes that struggle to taste like the original. As far as we're concerned, it's all part of our culinary tradition—and all around us in the Boston area! 

Judaica is also a long-standing tradition in Judaism in an effort to beautify the commandments, or mitzvot, we performWhether you're in the market for Shabbat candlesticks, searching for a tallis for a bar/bat mitzvah or just looking for a good book to read, find everything you need here.
