Kosher food in Ithaca, NY?

  • t


My boyfriend and I are getting married next summer, and hope to hold the ceremony in Ithaca, NY, my home town. Does anyone know of a caterer in the area who could provide us with kosher meals for his parents and other relatives who keep kosher? We don't plan to make the entire reception kosher; we were hoping just to purchase 10 or so meals and have them brought in.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. Off topic, but if anyone knows of any good books on interfaith marriages, that would be helpful too. He was raised conservative Jewish, I was raised Episcopal, and neither of us is interested in organized religion. It's not a problem for us, but his parents are kinda freaking out.

    Just as a warning, any non-kosher caterer who says they can get you kosher meals is probably referring to frozen kosher airline meals.

    You may be able to get advice or help from Cornell University's Hillel (link below) which has a kosher dining hall.

    Good luck.
