Food Policymaking Guide for Synagogues

As we take time to reevaluate our food choices and consider contemporary notions of Jewish ethical eating, many congregations will choose to create or refine existing dietary policies. This brief guide sets out a five-step process for a committee considering new food policies to learn about traditions of Jewish dietary law, examine the Reform Movement's perspective on these issues over time, and create a meaningful synagogue food policy that promotes healthy, sustainable, ethical eating. With special thanks to Rabbi Jeff Brown.
