Koshering the White House Kitchen for Hanukkah

December 5, 2013

Watch the kitchen at the White House undergo a transformation into a kosher kitchen. This entails wrapping existing kitchen surfaces and a complete separation of milk and meat, as well as the use of kosher ingredients and utensils that have only been used for kosher. This allows the kitchen to prepare and serve a completely kosher meal for this year's Hanukkah celebration at the White House. Local Rabbi's were also on hand to oversee the koshering.
