The Canberra Jewish community is a small yet active community. Demographically the Jewish residents are spread out over the northern and southern suburbs. Chabad ACT saw the need to provide a Kosher service to the Canberra residents keeping Kosher as well as for visitors with a Kosher diet. Chabad ACT invested in a commercial kitchen with an on call professional team of a skilled qualified chef and kitchen staff in order to prepare certified Kosher meals as needed for individuals and for events both large and small held locally that require Kosher catering and established Canberra Kosher (CK). Canberra Kosher is the only certified Kosher caterer in Canberra and the region.
Canberra Kosher also gives kosher certification (CK) under the Rabbinic administration of Rabbi Shmueli Feldman. The standard of Kosher is of the strictest level possible which enables those with the highest degree of Kosher observance to eat from the CK certified foods. CK can certify your kitchen, product and function as well as cater for you if required. For more general information on Kosher and Kosher food Email or click here. CK can also certify other caterers if they wish to do a Kosher function.
