Kosher Food & Accommodation
LSE is well-situated for any student that wants to keep kosher. There are:
Shops in the centre of London with kosher sections, such as Sainsbury's at 129-133 Kingsway, London less than a 5 minutes walk from LSE.
Shops and restaurants in North-West London, around 40 minutes commute from campus. Search “Kosher Golders Green/Hendon” for more information.
Kosher meals held once a week on the LSE campus.
Friday Night Dinners held by both chaplaincy on either Great Portland Street or near Marble Arch, and Chabad on Euston Road. Ask a member about the famous FND Friday dinners. Feel open to ask any member of the committee and we will find you somewhere for a lovely Shabbat meal.
There are many kosher flatshares all over London as well as a Hillel House in Golders Green.
