Kosher Food

 

Keeping Kosher in Canberra

Most kosher foods are available in Canberra such as Costco, Coles and Woolworths and the Fyshwick Fruit Markets. Kosher meat and chicken is currently sold at Coles stores in Manuka, Woden and Civic. Kosher wine can be purchased from the ACTJC Centre during office hours and some liquor stores around Canberra, such as Dan Murphys in Belconnen.

 

Kosher Groceries

Coles Manuka and Woden as well as Woolworths in Belconnen have dedicated kosher sections, selling cheese and yoghurt, as well as kosher fish products, pickles, grape juice, dips and other products. Many other kosher products can be found on the shelves of all regular supermarkets, as well as many delis around Canberra. Costco supermarket in particular stocks many kosher products imported from the United States.

To find out which products are kosher, look for a reliable hechsher (kashrut symbol), or use the kosher product directory on the Kashrut Authority (KA) website https://www.ka.org.au There is also a kosher Canberra Messenger group made up of kosher consumers living in Canberra where live updates and photos of kosher products spotted around town are posted. If you would like to be added to the group, please email veronica.leydman@actjc.org.au.

 

Kosher Meat

Coles Woden, Manuka and Civic currently stock a variety of frozen kosher meat and chicken, sourced from Continental Kosher Butchers in Melbourne. They generally stock chicken (whole, breast, thighs), beef roasts, sausages, hamburgers, lamb cutlets and a small range of sliced meat. Joining the kosher Canberra Messenger group is a good way to stay up to date with what’s in stock (without having to travel to each supermarket).

For the full range of kosher meat and smallgoods, Coles Woden may place special orders upon request with Continental Kosher Butchers. Contact the supermarket directly to receive the order list, and for more information. Due to frequent staff changes in Coles, this practice may change before we become aware of it so it is always best to check with the Manager at your preferred Coles store. Continental Kosher Butchers in Melbourne also provide home delivery to Canberra consumers.

 

Kosher baked goods

Kosher challah and other baked goods are stocked at Coles supermarket in Manuka and Shop Rite at the Griffith shops (2 Barker Street). Baked goods are from Glick's Bakery and Grandma Moses. The ACTJC Centre no longer stocks challah and baked goods as the huge increase in transport costs makes transporting it from Melbourne unviable.

For a wide range of kosher gourmet smallgoods, pickles, antipasti, spices and dips, Melbourne deli Lewis & Son delivers to Canberra. Check the website for order cut-off and delivery dates to Canberra. For most postcodes in Canberra, the delivery fee is $20. Check the Lewis & Son website for more details, and to place your order. lewisandson.com.au

 

Kosher wine

A range of kosher wine can be purchased from the ACTJC Centre during office hours. For a wider selection, the multi-regional kosher winery Six Parallels South will deliver to Canberra, year-round, for $10 (6 bottles) or $15 (12 bottles). The minimum order is 6 bottles. New wines are released for Rosh Hashanan and Pesach, and there are regular sales. http://www.6psouth.com
