New kosher kitchen

FACILITIES: Jewish Chaplain Rabbi Ephraim Guttentag with Raffy Graff, of the Salford Jewish Society, in the new kosher kitchen

A KOSHER kitchen complete with two sinks, milky and meaty microwaves and a fridge freezer is now available for use by Jewish students at the University of Salford.

The new facility is the result of months of planning by Rabbi Ephraim Guttentag, the regional chaplain for Jewish students in Manchester, together with the university officials.

It was officially opened by Dr Sam Grogan, pro vice-chancellor for student experience, and is part of the university's new multifaith centre.

Rabbi Guttentag said: "This shows its inclusivity and how accommodating they are to Jewish students on campus, as they want to encourage diversity."

Students will also benefit from regular supplies of kosher milk and non-perishable snacks, together with disposable paperware and cutlery, which are sponsored by University Jewish Chaplaincy.
