Food policy


Of course we like to share a meal whenever we gather together for services or a special event.  However, in order to respect as many food restrictions as possible, the CAS community always follows these guidelines: 


  • No pork or shellfish at any of our services or events.

  • Only vegetarian, dairy and fish dishes in the synagogue and at the Passover Seder and  Yom Kippur Break Fast.

  • All ingredients in all food dishes must be labeled.


Thank you for your cooperation.  Now let's break bread together.



The mission of Congregation Ahavath Sholom is to support a participatory, egalitarian, and inclusive Reconstructionist Jewish community. While recognizing the dynamic and evolving nature of Judaism in modern life, we engage with our traditions to inspire our ethical and spiritual growth. We encourage study, prayer, and celebration, education of children, and acts of caring and social justice.
