Plan goal: Embrace diversity and build an inclusive community of students, faculty, and staff

  Naomi Gates-Monasch'04 and Somera Khan '04 discuss lunch in the College's kosher/halal dining hall.
In 2001, Wilder Hall became the home of Mount Holyoke's new kosher/halal dining facility, a place that welcomes students of all backgrounds, but in particular allows religious Muslims and religious Jews to practice the dietary laws of their faiths. It is one of a handful of its kind on American college campuses. Three meals a day, seven days a week, all food served meets the restrictions of both the Qur'an and the Torah. Says Somera Khan '04, "I take great pride in Wilder. It brings the Jewish and Muslim communities together. We are recognized as cousins--it reminds us that we are in the same boat." A $250,000 grant from an anonymous alumna made possible the conversion of Wilder's dining hall into a kosher/halal facility.
