Well… Since you have a non-refundable deposit, I would ensure your contract specifies that you are indeed going to have a Kosher meal, and I would ask the caterer to allow a witness of your choosing to enforce the standards of Kashrut. Unless you are willing to eat the cost of the deposit. . . UNLESS the Synagogue is successful in banishing these people from your event, could you not recoup your deposit because the event was cancelled by a 3rd party? Doubt it, but it wouldn’t hurt to read the contract, and hope for the “best” there.

wow, that’s crazy. I’ve never heard of a venue charging $7000 to walk through the venue. That’s not normal. I don’t have any great advice, especially without seeing the particulars of your contract and also without knowing the outcome of the current situation with the catering company. Who did you pay the deposit to – the caterer or the synagogue? Is this your shul? If it is, and your set on getting married there and you paid the deposit to the caterer, then perhaps they could cater your event at another venue (if they are guilty of violating kashrut and their contract is terminated) – you could have the chuppah in shul and then the reception elsewhere. If you paid the deposit to your shul (Im assuming not – I don’t really know of a shul that asks for a 7000 deposit), and the catering company gets evicted, you could just go with another catering company. But there are honestly too many variables to really say anything without guessing.

Did you purchase wedding insurance? Cause it would cover something like that.
