Cam­pus sinks money into kosher kitchen

The Jewish Chronicle - - COM­MU­NITY NEWS -

BABY ILL­NESSES, emer­gency pro­to­cols and CPR were among top­ics cov­ered dur­ing a pe­di­atric first-aid course at Mill Hill Sy­n­a­gogue or­gan­ised by the United Sy­n­a­gogue’s Project Ch­esed and led by Daniel Mor­ris from Learn2Res­cue.

Ch­esed li­ai­son of­fi­cer Orah Bar­nett re­ported: “We had ex­pected this topic to ap­peal to young cou­ples but we were de­lighted to see a range of peo­ple in­clud­ing first-time grand­par­ents.”

Project Ch­esed will be of­fer­ing ad­di­tional ses­sions to com­mu­ni­ties through­out the US in­clud­ing one at Bushey in May.

A KOSHER kitchen pro­vided for stu­dents by Sal­ford Univer­sity in­cor­po­rates two sinks, milk and meat mi­crowaves and a fridge freezer.

Part of the univer­sity’s new mul­ti­faith cen­tre, the kitchen is the re­sult of con­sul­ta­tions be­tween Sal­ford of­fi­cials and re­gional chap­lain Rabbi Ephraim Gut­tentag.

The univer­sity paid for the main ap­pli­ances and for the kitchen to be fit­ted out.

Chap­laincy is meet­ing the cost of smaller items and on­go­ing sup­plies.

Ex­press­ing grat­i­tude to the univer­sity, Rabbi Gut­tentag said it demon­strated “their in­clu­siv­ity and how ac­com­mo­dat­ing they are to Jew­ish stu­dents on cam­pus.

“The kitchen is a great fa­cil­ity for stu­dents who want to keep kosher and be able to have their own snacks and drinks.”

Raffy Graff, the Sal­ford JSoc pres­i­dent, com­mended the rabbi “for his ef­forts to en­hance Jew­ish stu­dent life”.
