Kosher Dining


Cornell Dining is known as one of the best University Dining programs in the country, and this reputation extends to Kosher dining. The main kosher dining hall on Cornell’s campus is 104West!, located conveniently right next to the CJL. Hot Kosher meals are served twice daily (lunch and dinner) every day of the week. For freshman living on North Campus, 104West! maintains another kosher kitchen, It’s Kosher!, located in the Northstar Dining Room at Appel Commons.  This location serves hot meals twice daily Sunday-Thursday of each week. All Cornell Kosher products are produced in the 104West! kitchens by Cornell Dining staff. The “hashgachah”, the kosher certification, is provided by the Star-K to Cornell Dining under the supervision of our full time Mashgiach. 

Please note that Kosher food is only available when Cornell is in session. For alternative Kosher food options, contact the CJL.
