LA|Kosher Catering started in 1970 under the name Starlite Catering Inc. by Steve Cohen as Valley Beth Shalom’s exclusive caterer and quickly became one of the premier Kosher Caterers in Southern California.
Upon Steve's retirement in November 2018,
Valley Beth Shalom continued the catering operations as a department of the synagogue under the direction of Eric Levine adopting the name LA|Kosher Catering to provide exceptional full-service catering.
Eric Levine started working for LA|Kosher Catering in 1992 and returned in 2014 as the Director of Catering.
Valley Beth Shalom and LA|Kosher have both a meat and dairy kitchen to service everyone's palate!
