Jewish students looking for kosher meals have a new alternative. Chabad Student Center, 7033 Freret St., is offering kosher dinners each Monday and Tuesday night during the spring semester.
Dinners are $8 each, but a 50 percent discount is available to students who sign up by Sunday (Jan. 10) for the semester's meals. The Chabad dinners are not connected to the Tulane University Meal Plan.
Rabbi Yochanan Rivkin said the dinners will be home-cooked or catered from Casablanca or Kosher Kajun, two New Orleans restaurants that cook kosher meals. The dinners, which begin on Monday (Jan. 11), are "a great way to socialize as part of the Jewish community at Tulane," Rivkin said.
