4 Questions for Kosher Dining Hall’s Irene Skupsky

Irene Skupsky

This school year, the Center for Community (C4C) on CU’s campus opened a new Kosher dining section. Perhaps no one is more passionate about the dining option than Irene Skupsky, a dining hall worker and observant Jew.  Besides working at the dining hall, Skupsky is the former vice president for Jewish sorority, Sigma Rho Lambda and is a member of Chabad student board. I asked my former roommate, Irene Skupsky, to answer 4 questions about the dining hall.

How long have you been working in the dining hall?

I’ve been working there since the beginning of this school year in September. (She began soon after opening).

What’s the mission of the kosher dining section?

The mission is to provide a kosher food option for individuals that follow the Jewish dietary laws of kashrut.

How big an audience does it attract?

It depends on the meal. We have anywhere from 100 to 250 people per day.

Why do you think it is important to have a kosher dining  option?

I believe that it is important that every student at CU feels comfortable on this campus. By having the facilities to provide kosher food, more observant Jewish students can feel at home on campus. The university has done an incredible job at providing accommodations. Hopefully, this will attract more Jewish students in the future.
