Food and Nut Policy

Food is a sacred gift. We eat it to keep ourselves healthy and to enhance the pleasure of life’s happy events” – Wendy Mogel, Ph.D Blessings of a Skinned Knee

Our classrooms are mini Jewish communities and part of being a Jewish community is celebrating holidays and special occasions. This gives us an opportunity to focus on thankfulness for food, sharing with others, as well as thinking about feeding the hungry. Therefore food is brought into the school setting for the purpose of shared community celebrations, particularly around Jewish holidays and other special occasions. 

Food/Nut Policy at Temple Isaiah Religious School

Some of our students are allergic to nuts and nut products. Please review the following policy related to snacks served by the religious school and those provided by parents.

 When the religious school provides snacks in the classroom, we will strive to exclude nut, nut products and any product that states “manufactured or processed on equipment that processes nuts” or may contain traces of peanuts/nuts.

 If your child(ren) attends religious school directly after school, we ask that you send them with a substantial snack so that they can participate effectively. Please do not send in foods that contain tree nuts, peanuts or products derived from them even for your child’s individual consumption.


Because of multiple allergies, we ask that parents provide snack for their child’s consumption only. Please do not send in any items for class consumption unless you have been requested to do so by a staff member for a special event.

 Please note:  The Temple is NOT a nut-free building.  The guidelines above pertain to religious school classes and school events. There are Temple events, including events in the classrooms (outside of school hours), to which congregants or caterers bring in food that may include nuts.
