About DC Kosher™

Keeping kosher in the Washington, DC area has historically been a challenge, due to the limited number of kosher restaurants (especially vegan and vegetarian). DC Kosher was born as part of a recent venture undertaken by Ohev Sholom - The National Synagogue to certify certain vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the Washington, DC area, in order to help individuals more easily observe the kosher dietary laws. DC Kosher does not charge for this service, but we will welcome your donations to help us expand our efforts. Visit to contribute. Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld and Maharat Ruth Friedman are jointly leading the supervision effort.

Standards & Regulations

DC Kosher is an Orthodox kashrut organization that follows rigorous rules and procedures in order to ensure that the restaurants under supervision are kosher, with many policies similar to those of well-known kashrut organizations. Additionally, there are volunteer mashgiachim who conduct checks to insure that the restaurants are abiding by Jewish law, and that all products and items meet the kashrut standards as established by Rabbi Herzfeld, Maharat Friedman and DC Kosher.
