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 a number of retail facilities under supervision:
King Street Cookies
370 King Street
Charleston, SC 29401
(cookies, bagels, variety of coffees)
96 Wentworth Street
Charleston, SC 29401
(Vegan and Vegetarian restaurant, part of the dining services of the College of Charleston, closed during the summer.)
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.
CATERING AND TAKE OUT
Hyman’s Seafood, located in downtown Charleston at the 215 Meeting Street, sells kosher certified meals prepared by the Chabad of Charleston. The restaurant will sell them frozen or hot and they come completely sealed and double wrapped.
Dining In does exclusively kosher catering for both large and small events, and also sells fresh baked kosher Challah, 843.763.8160.
There are a number of non-kosher caterers who can do large elegant affairs as well as small dinner parties, when prepared under kosher supervision in a certified kosher kitchen. All 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.
