The first Kosher Kitchen for Yale Graduate Students opened in the fall of 1959 in the Young Israel Synagogue, a twenty-five minute walk from campus, serving only week-night dinners. Today, the Lindenbaum Kosher Kitchen functions as a seamless part of the Yale University Dining System in the middle of campus. Serving lunch and dinner during the week, family-style Shabbat meals, and Sunday brunch and dinner inside the beautiful Sam and Ronnie Heyman Commons. Every other Sunday, Slifka offers a bagel brunch, often attended by more than 500 students who come to chow down on dozens and dozens of bagels and mounds of lox – just one example of the focus to serve excellent food that happens to be kosher.
The staff is committed to delivering a high-quality dining and social experience to all who come to eat, study, or just hang out. Let us know what you think – it’s the most valuable tool we have and we appreciate your comments.
