Sorry if this isn’t allowed, I’ll take it down if necessary. And sorry if this is the wrong tag, I think I picked the right one? I don’t know if dietary stuff fits under Halacha but it seems right?
So to start; I’m not Jewish. But a dear friend of mine, who I haven’t seen in years, is coming to visit and will be staying with me for about two weeks. She is Jewish, I don’t know the specific type but it’s one of the Orthodox ones – I think there’s multiple types of orthodoxy Judaism?
I asked what she would need from me, to be comfortable. But she’s a very passive and I quiet person, so she said not to bother myself since it’s complicated. Well, imma bother myself anyway because I want her to be comfortable and able to eat. I know in recent years she’s gotten a lot more into the religion, and is pretty strict with the rules, at least in her house. So even though she isn’t asking for these things, I want to at least offer them.
What can I do to make my non-kosher kitchen more kosher friendly?? I don’t eat meat personally, so I do not have any meat in the house and can’t recall ever using my dishes,cooking utensils or pots/pans with any meat items. But I have lots of dairy products, honey, eggs, fruits, veggies, and grain items (like bread and pasta).
Any other tips y’all have would be greatly appreciated or random things that would make you feel more welcomed. I know a decent bit of Jewish religion and culture but all from a more top-down view. I know what the holidays are for example, but next to nothing about how people actually do normal things while conforming to the Jewish rules, like rules about preparing food (aside from the broad “meat and milk don’t mix” type of thing) or personal hygiene things. Is there any other random household things you would appreciate a host offering or not having around?
