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, run by Slifka Dining, functions as a seamless part of the Yale University Dining System in the middle of campus. Slifka Dining serves breakfast, lunch and dinner during the week, family-style Shabbat meals, and Sunday brunch and dinner inside the beautiful Sam and Ronnie Heyman Commons.Â Every other Sunday, Slifka offers a bagel brunch, often attended by more than 350 students who come to chow down on dozens and dozens of bagels and mounds of lox - just one example of Slifka Dining's focus on providing a full-service dining option for all, serving excellent food that happens to be kosher.
The staff of Slifka Center and Slifka Dining is committed to delivering a high quality dining and social experience to all who come to eat, study, or just hang out.Â Let us know what you think â€“ itâ€™s the most valuable tool we have and we appreciate your comments.
