Kosher Sydney

The Hebrew word ‘kasher’ literally means fit or proper. Kosher laws outline what foods may be eaten and how they may be prepared according to Jewish law. Kosher foods are divided into three categories: meat, dairy and pareve.

The laws of keeping kosher extend to the cooking process and preparation is critical to the overall kosher status. For example, for meat to be kosher it must undergo the prescribed method of slaughtering animals and fowl for consumption, known as shechitah. This is performed by a shochet, a ritual slaughterer. (Sidebar: did you know our multi-talented Chazzan Sheni and Choir Master, Rabbi Yehuda Niasoff, is also an experienced shochet!)

The laws of Kashrut are many and varied – there is so much to know. Our holy Torah teaches that keeping kosher is essential for one’s body and soul. Here in Sydney, we know kosher! Visit  for a thorough listing of kosher stores; restaurants (meat and dairy); caterers; bakeries, butcher and more.
