“Kosher” is a qualification that applies to any food or drink that falls into line with the dietary requirements of the Jewish Faith. For thousands of years, the Jewish people have maintained a commitment to specific rules related to eating and drinking. Traditional Jewish food rules instruct adherents tokeep certain food groups separate, such as meat and dairy. In addition, those keeping Kosher are required to abstain from eating shellfish and pig, as these animals were traditionally considered unclean based on the teachings of the Torah.
Why the Jewish Religion and Culture Values Keeping Kosher
Jewish people have historically kept Kosher based on instructions in the Torah. The Torah, also known as the Penteteuch, comprises the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. These books contain detailed instructions to the Israelites – the original descendents of the Jewish people – on how to prepare food in a way that was honoring to God.
For millennia since then, millions of Jewish people have maintained a commitment to keeping Kosher as a sign of their devotion to God. The Jewish culture and religion are both deeply rooted in rich history and heritage. Kosher is a tradition that dates back to the beginning of the Jewish peoples’ documented history.
Whether you are Jewish or not, knowing about how the parameters and guidelines of Kosher work is extremely helpful. Knowledge of Kosher can help you honor any Jewish friends or family members that you might have, and can give you a greater level of cultural awareness. Taking the time to learn about cultures and religions other than your own is always worthwhile.
What Are the Best Kosher Chocolate Chip Cookies?
When it comes to keeping Kosher, one of the biggest challenges that a person may face comes when it’s time for dessert. Finding Kosher-friendly desserts can be difficult, especially because of certain practices used in the process of mass-producing packaged desserts.
We know the struggle to find great Kosher desserts is real, and that’s why we madeall(you read that right) of our cookies 100% Kosher-friendly!
For any baker, one of the biggest challenges is in reproducing the classics well. Of course, one of the best-loved cookies of all time is the classic chocolate chip. When we set out to bake the best tasting chocolate chip cookie out there, we knew we had some big shoes to fill.
Fortunately, we had some divine help in the form of our faithful nuns, who guided us all the way through the process of creating our special recipes. Thanks to their help, we ended up with cookies that are truly… second to nun.
Our chocolate chip cookies are made with the best ingredients possible, ingredients that you can feel great about eating. The basis for our dough is a combination of a few simple, wholesome ingredients, combined with sweet, delicious chocolate chips. We took the time to get the chip-to-dough ratio nailed down perfectly because we know that a chocolate chip cookie with too few or too many chips can fall short of sainthood.
Best of all, for the Kosher eaters out there, our bakery is certified Kosher! In addition, we use all-natural, non-GMO ingredients for all of our cookies.
What About Other Kosher Cookies?
Nunbelievable has for more to offer lovers of Kosher cookies than just the classic chocolate chip.We’ve also got some incredible peanut butter, oatmeal raisin and double chocolate cookies, all certified Kosher!
When you need to provide some delicious Kosher desserts to others or want to enjoy some yourself, having a variety to choose from makes things even more fun. Many adherents to Kosher often have only one dessert to choose from at parties and other events, and it’s often a struggle to determine if a dessert is Kosher-friendly once it is out of its packaging.
Fortunately, with four delicious types of cookies to choose from, adherents of Kosher can finally get to enjoy just as much dessert as everyone else!

Using Kosher Cookies to Share Love and Joy with Your Friends and Family
If you have friends who practice Judaism and keep Kosher, the winter holidays may look a bit different for them. Christmas is not a holiday that is traditionally observed by the Jewish people. Instead, many Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah for eight days each December.
Hanukkah is known as the festival of lights, and as a holiday it celebrates a pivotal moment in Jewish history during the Maccabean revolt in 164 BC. You may be celebrating Christmas shortly after your Jewish friends and neighbors celebrate Hanukkah – in 2020, Hanukkah fell on the 10th of December through the 18th day of the month.
No matter what religion you observe, the holidays can be a special time that can be enjoyed and shared with friends and family. Giving gifts during the holiday season is one of the best ways to share love with your favorite people, and it is always a great time to be extra kind and generous.
