Jewish and Muslim students are working together to bring both kosher and halal meals to the campus of Carnegie Mellon University.
"For the past three years, we have been working with the administration in collaboration with Chabad to get kosher food on campus," said Benji Berlow, director of Jewish Student Life at CMU. "We helped to initiate a steering committee to be working on this. And we have made a lot of in-roads into finding a vendor."
The Jewish/Muslim student life steering committee is comprised of representatives from Hillel Jewish University Center, Chabad of Carnegie Mellon University, Jewish students and faculty, Muslim students and faculty, and community members, according to Berlow.
