Crunch Café, a new kosher dairy dining facility inside the Eva and Arie Halpern Hillel House on the Rutgers University Wilf Family Campus, opened January 21, at 70 College Ave., New Brunswick. The building, the largest Hillel in America, is the center of the school’s Jewish religious and cultural life and serves more than 7,000 Jewish students.
As an approved Rutgers vendor, Crunch Cafe will serve the whole university community, hosting and catering for any Rutgers student clubs or academic departments.
Miriam Brickman, a recent graduate of Rutgers-Newark, and her brother, Buzzy, a Rutgers student, own the café.
Lisa Harris Glass, CEO of Rutgers Hillel, said, “The alarming rise in antisemitism on college campuses, especially since October 7th, makes engaging places of Jewish life all the more important. Crunch Café will be a valuable addition to our vibrant Hillel here at Rutgers and welcome people from across our campus community.”
The café, which is certified kosher dairy under the Vaad of Raritan Valley, will be open on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Email email@example.com for any questions or to place an order.
