Lchaim Foods – Premium Japanese Kosher Catering – The Story
Upon moving back to San Francisco as an adult, Rabbi Alex Shandrovsky observed a lack of variety in high-quality kosher food available in the Bay Area. Alex believed that increasing the accessibility to fresh, kosher food would foster community, learning, and discussion. In Aug 2013, Alex partnered with Congregation Adath Israel to create Lchaim Sushi. Upon observing an incredible parallel between the values of Kosher and sustainability, Alex reached out to Casson Trennor, Founder of the world’s first sustainable sushi restaurant Tataki, for mentorship. In Jan 2014, Lchaim Sushi became the world’s first sustainable, kosher sushi manufacturer, certified at that time by both the Vaad of Kosher Northern California and Monterey Bay Sea Watch Program.
Staying true to its core educational mission, Lchaim Sushi’s introduced innovative programming that facilitated cross-disciplinary conversations from thought leaders of sustainability, Jewish ethics, and sushi cuisine. Supported by growing interest by the community in ethically sourced and kosher sushi, L’Chaim Sushi expanded into it’s own facility, partnering with Royal Hawaiian Seafood in March 2014.Sharing delicious meals can be an intimate experience leading to trust and community-building.
