See your other post about the rehearsal dinner, but I don’t think you need to invite your FI’s family (except the parents, of course), unless they’re paying for it. If they are, they need to find a way to accommodate their Kosher needs. If you are, I think you should just invite bridal party/guests and parents. If you don’t get Kosher food, you probably will come off as insensitive and they won’t eat anything. Between not inviting the entire family and coming off as an ungracious hostess, I’d personally choose the former. But it’s up to you…

You are in New York City and you can’t find a single inexpensive kosher restaurant to cater?  I find that hard to believe.  I have a few Jewish friends in the area that could probably recommend a place or two if you want to email me at valentine014 at hotmail dot com.

You must be getting married in someplace other than NYC if this is an issue.  Are there no synagogues, caterers, etc, that you can use?  I’m in thw Twin Cities (not the center of the Jewish world by ANY stretch of the imagination) and we have many caterers, grocery stores, etc, that do kosher catering.  The grocery stores can even prepare hot meals to go. 

Where is your rehearsal dinner anyway that they’re going to let you bring in outside food?  I assume you’re bringing separate dishes that are ksoher too?  It seems odd to me to serve food that is not kosher and kosher at the same meal.  Do your Future In-Laws know that this is what’s happening?  There’s no way you could go for a completely kosher meal for everyone?  I’m jusy saying because maybe there are places you hadn’t considered getting food from. πŸ™‚

Wow, I really surprised that there’s nothing but I tried some Googling and you seem to be right. πŸ™

I’m surprised he had such a low opinion of kosher food.  Sure you can’t have certain things but really there’s nothing THAT different about kosher food.  πŸ™  I didn’t always keep kosher so I know this but I personally think kosher chicken tastes yummier than non-kosher chicken–I think it’s the salting. πŸ˜€  And who can argue with brisket?

Why not cater the rehersal dinner yourself and make it a little more informal? Have your mother, sister’s, mother-in-law, sister-in-laws all pitch in.  I know it will be a pain in the butt… but, I’m sure your in-laws will be impressed you put the thought and time into it.  It seems you don’t have many other options.
