Kosher just got easier in South Dakota
The Chabad Jewish Center recently set up monthly delivery of kosher food items from Minneapolis
The South Dakota Jewish community is making it easier to get kosher meals.
The Chabad Jewish Center recently set up monthly delivery of kosher food items from Minneapolis, a move that Rabbi Mendel Alperowitz said has become increasingly necessary with the influx of diverse populations in South Dakota.
Most local grocery stores do not carry kosher meat, poultry or dairy, and people who want to keep a kosher home often have to travel out of state or have special shipments made, Alperowitz said, noting those barriers make kosher expensive.
“As our community grows, and more people are needing kosher food, we felt it was important to step up,” he said.
