We are set to roll out Kosher training to all of our office staff and Care Professionals.
Jewish dietary requirements restrict the foods that Jewish people are permitted to eat and how those foods must be prepared according to Jewish law.
The training will be taking place at our Radfield Home Care Camden, Islington & Haringey office with Glyn Clark, Owner & Director heading up the sessions.
“It’s important to me that our office and team of Care Professionals develop a real connection with the communities we serve. Our part of London includes the largest Jewish community in the UK. We want to support all of our clients, regardless of their background, cultural or religious beliefs.”
Many Jewish people keep Kosher, meaning they observe certain restrictions on the type of food they eat. Some of these rules are well known, such as not eating pork and shellfish, whilst others are less obvious.
“Our Kosher training is designed to bring an awareness to Care Professionals of these rules and give them the basic principles, particularly surrounding the separation of meat and dairy foods and utensils, so that should they need to shop or prepare a meal for a client, they can undertake the basic tasks in accordance with Kosher laws and the clients wishes.”
Jewish law prohibits eating meat and dairy foods together. There are three main kosher food categories: meat, dairy and pareve. Pareve is any food that is not considered meat or dairy such as fish, eggs, grains, fruits and vegetables.
If you’re keen to find out more, HealthLine has put together a fantastic resource for understanding how the kosher tradition defines and separates various foods.
