Congregation Netivot Shalom welcomes caterers who operate under rabbinic supervision and can supply a certificate.  Those caterers who are not under formal rabbinic supervision have met with Rabbi Levy and comply with our synagogue’s kashrut standards and are thus acceptable for congregational functions.  If the caterer or bakery is under formal supervision, it is noted.  We permit only dairy and parve food on our premises.  If you have any questions about specific caterers who are not on this list, please contact the Rabbi Levy.
