Jersey Shore Kosher Dining Guide for Summer 2018!

By Frieda Schweky Jun 28, 2018 12:46 PM

Keeping Kosher in Brooklyn, NY is thought of as a fairly easy task. In the Midwood and Flatbush areas, especially, exists a multitude of various Kosher establishments that cater specifically to the kosher consumer. Although keeping kosher in the Fall, Winter, and Spring months proves to be an easy task for many Jewish community members in the greater New York area, Summer vacation tends to be more difficult.

When community members move to the Jersey Shore for the Summer, the options for kosher eating drastically narrow in comparison to New York. Many people complain about the difficulties of keeping kosher in a town that, simply put, does not have as many kosher establishments as New York does. However, there are many kosher establishments on the Jersey Shore with many options for anyone seeking a good meal.

To help make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of all of the currently opened kosher restaurants to visit in the Jersey Shore area. This is the most comprehensive and updated list you will find online for 2018, so share it with friends and help your fellow community members easily keep kosher this Summer!
