Eating Kosher Food at Non-Kosher Venue


My employer holds mandatory weekly meetings at a non-kosher restaurant. The restaurant is cafeteria style and also sells some factory produced items with kosher certification that are intended for carryout but nevertheless ready to eat. Am I permitted to eat these items during the meetings at the same table while everyone else there eats non-kosher food?



  1. If your not eating together with them will be the cause of ill feeling, it is permissible to do so so long as the food is in a closed package and has not been opened.

    Best wishes from the Team
