Temple’s Dietary Restrictions

Acceptable meats include beef, lamb and goat. They have split hooves and chew their cud. Basically vegetarians. They should not be mixed or served with dairy as in no cheese burgers or meat lasagne.
Chicken, duck, goose and turkey are also counted as acceptable meat fair. The orthodox would also shun having dairy with them at the same time, however we are a reform temple and it’s a grey area since they don’t nourish their young with mothers milk.
Fish need to have fins and scales( when living not when serving) so no shellfish or mollusks, but can be served with dairy or meat as can anything with eggs.
Overall no predators or scavengers. No pigs, they eat unclean foods so are unclean. So if you plan to get Chinese carry out leave out the char siu and kau yuk, etc…. As well as shrimp and squid, etc…  All fruit and vegetables ok.

Please sign up using Sign Up Genius (we are using this so that everyone can get an idea of what to bring):
