Our rabbi, Rabbi Davis, provides kosher certification to a number of establishments in town under the auspices of the Kosher Commission of Charleston (KCC). Currently there are three retail facilities under supervision:
King Street Cookies
Downtown Charleston / 370 King Street
(cookies, bagels, variety of coffees)
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
1491 Savannah Hwy, Charleston, SC 29407
* All doughnuts are kosher, beverages are NOT certified kosher. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts sold at area grocery stores are kosher certified when sealed in a box with the number 531.
96 Wentworth Street
Charleston, SC 29401
(Vegan and Vegetarian restaurant, part of the dining services of the College of Charleston.)
CATERING AND TAKE OUT
Hyman’s Seafood, located in downtown Charleston at the 215 Meeting Street, sells kosher certified meals that are prepared by the Chabad of Charleston. The restaurant will sell them frozen or hot and they come completely sealed and double wrapped.
There are no certified kosher caterers in Charleston. However there are a variety of local caterers who can do large elegant affairs as well as small dinner parties and take out Shabbat meals, when prepared under supervision in the BSBI kitchen. All kosher certified events and meals must bear the KCC logo. Please contact the synagogue office for details.
Several of the local grocery stores in Charleston enjoy a significant stock of kosher items. They are:
Publix – 1401 Sam Rittenberg Blvd · Charleston
Earthfare – 74 Folly Road Blvd · Charleston
Whole Foods – 923 Houston Northcutt Blvd · Mt Pleasant (sells kosher Challah)
Trader Joe’s – 401 Johnnie Dodds Blvd, Mt Pleasant (sells kosher Challah)
These stores are not under kosher supervision and as such not all the products they sell in their respective kosher sections are necessarily endorsed by our local rabbis.
Griller’s Pride is a company in Atlanta that has a large selection of kosher meats and other assorted kosher items. They make a delivery to Charleston every six weeks and orders can be placed on their website.
