Beit Midrash - R'Feldman's Book

New Kosher Option

 Stanford Dining has taken the Kosher option up a notch by expanding to weekday lunches five days a week and dinners Monday - Thurs.. Not just students but the general public can pay its way into the dining hall at Florence Moore Dorm and enjoy the Kosher section. It's open from 11 am - 1 pm for lunch and 5 - 7 pm for dinner. The cost is a flat fee of $15.50 per person and you can get seconds (or thirds). The Kosher section is well-marked, and is Fleishig (meat) for both meals each day. Flo-Mo, as it is called, is on Mayfield Ave., across from the parking lot of Tressidor (here). Finding the dining hall can be a challenge for outsiders but any student will direct you.

Looking for hospitality?

The community is so happy to have you here and we are happy to share our warmth, passion, and great food. If you'll be around and want to share your Shabbat or Yom Tov meals with members of the community, please contact our hospitality committee at

Please note that our hospitality program cannot guarantee availability every week. The number of hosts and visitors varies each time, and we must prioritize those who come for medical or business reasons.  We recommend that you make a "Plan B" for your stay, while we try to match you up with a host. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
