New Kosher B&B in Charleston, SC

The Broad Street Guest House, the first kosher bed and breakfast in South Carolina, has opened. According to an article in the Charleston Post & Courier, guests can expect to be "pampered and treated to meals that are anything but ordinary". According to the proprieter, Hadassah Rothenberg, the inn's new kosher kitchen was custom-built to her culinary specifications and under strict kosher rabbinic guide-lines.

Rabbi Ari Sytner certified the inn as Glatt kosher, under the "Palmetto K" symbol, which he created. Rabbi Sytner is the head rabbi of Charleston's Orthodox synagogue, Congregation Brith Sholom Beth Israel (BSBI to the locals), the oldest Orthodox Jewish synagogue in the Southern United States. Rabbi Sytner says he constantly is working with the Charleston community to obtain kosher certification. The Broad Street Guest House has guest suites with sunlit sitting rooms in the main house, each with luxurious, comfortable furnishings. Additionally, The Guest House Suite is located behind the main house and has easy access to the spacious outdoor piazza. All suites have private baths and kosher kitchenettes, and the upper-level suites are accessible by stairs or an elevator. The Broad Street Guest House is within walking distance of two Charleston synagogues, enabling guests to attend religious services, which is attractive for visiting Orthodox Jews who do not drive cars during the Sabbath."

We stayed at the Kosher B&B in Charleston last weekend and had a great time. The accommodations are beautiful and the food was fantastic. Great shabbat meals! The hostess, Hadassah, is very hospitable and there is lots to do and see in Charleston/

Unfortunately the B&B is no longer open. I was in Charleston last week and I was told that Hyman’s is now offering kosher food. I tried them out and I must say it was exceptional amazing food with genuine and friendly service (don’t miss the stuffed cabbage) I went back every night. It is almost worth a trip to Charleston just for this. I posted the info below.
