Kosher Food & Accommodation
Cambridge has a vibrant Chabad centre, and a Beth Shalom Reform Synagogue! In terms of Kosher food, although you’ll be able to get almost everything you need from the local Sainsbury’s, there are a few shops that stock Kosher foods.
Derby Stores has a small stock of Kosher bread, cheeses, meat, pot noodles and other condiments. They will also take orders for deliveries from London
JSoc receives orders of food from London every couple of weeks. If you’d like to order Kosher food, contact the Canteen Treasurer!
