ENJOY LIFESTYLE VACATIONS KOSHER-APPROVED KITCHEN!
Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club has provided VIP members with a new Kosher vacation option! The OK Kosher Certification, which Lifestyle Vacation Resort has been awarded, is one of the world’s most respected symbols of kosher approval. In an era of soaring demands for Kosher travel meals, the investment in our Kosher kitchen was made to provide the ultimate dining experience for our Jewish travelers.
The Kosher kitchen is open at the Puerto Plata resort year round. Guests of the resort can enjoy their kosher meals in a familiar environment. The resort’s kosher restaurant follows the rabbinical orthodox supervision of both Rabbi Don Yoel Levy and Rabbi Gornish. The resort’s seasoned kosher chef, Daneil Ohana, and Rabbi Joseph Green, the mashgichim, ensure all Kosher meals are prepared to the highest standards in kosher foods. The Kosher meals served follow the Kashrut Jewish Dietary Laws for Glatt kosher, Cholov Yisroel, and Pas Yisroel. The Kosher menu items include Sephardic, Ashkenazi, and international choices as well.
Under the Rabbi’s leadership, OK Kosher provides certification for the biggest food brands and their products, such as IFF, Kraft, ConAgra and Tropicana. Operating on six continents and supported by more than 350 of the world’s leading kosher experts, OK Kosher certifies more than 500,000 products, produced by over 2,500 companies, yet only a select few resort properties are included. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club is proud to be one of those few Kosher resorts in Dominican Republic.
