There’s a stark juxtaposition between the volume of kosher options in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania versus the Catskill Mountains, across the state border in New York. The Catskills has dozens of kosher eateries (listed here) whereas the Poconos, hosting thousands of kosher observant campers and other summer travelers, only has a small handful of places to find kosher food, mainly in Lake Como, PA.

Here’s what exists:

  • Como Pizza
    • 3199 Creamton Dr, Lake Como, PA
    • Kosher under the supervision of Rabbi Rothwax
    • Cholov Yisroel, Pas Yisroel and Kemach Yashan
    • Summer season only
  • Stop, Chop, & Roll
    • 3199 Creamton Dr, Lake Como, PA
    • Kosher under the supervision of the Five Towns Vaad
    • Summer season only
  • Jericho Dairy Bar

    • All ice creams, brownies, frozen yogurts, mixes, cones, shakes, cakes, flurries, and frozen bananas are listed as kosher
    • Summer season only

Two additional options:

  2. In the Honesdale region, the Camp Moshava Rabbi certifies ice cream products and slushies from both Gravity Ice Cream in Honesdale, and Carousel Water and Fun Park in Beach Lake, PA, during the summer months. A teudah is posted at both. (H/T Charles Laifer)
