Kosher Katalog is a Made-in-Israel fundraising
catalog created for Jewish Communities.
• What is Kosher Katalog (K.K.)?
Kosher Katalog is a Made-in-Israel fundraising product catalog created for American Jewish Communities.
• What does fundraising mean?
Fundraising means a percentage of the sales raised by Kosher Katalog clients goes back into that participating community to be used at their discretion.
• Why are we called Kosher Katalog?
We are using the word Kosher in its slang form, referring to something being "cool" and "approved." We spell Katalog with a "K" to play off the word kosher. Sometimes we refer to ourselves as K.K.
• Why is Kosher Katalog needed?
Israel is a small country with a fragile economy. For many small size Israeli manufacturers, designers and artists, the retail market in Israel can be limiting and restrictive. Kosher Katalog offers a unique distribution opportunity into the Jewish communities throughout the USA.
At the same time, we give a donation to the participating American Jewish community. This donation amount is a percentage of the total sales generated by the students and families in their communities.
We believe we are doing a mitzvah as your purchases help the Israeli economy, local artists and manufacturers as well as your local community.
• Who can buy from Kosher Katalog?
Only students, parents, family and friends of students attending the participating Jewish community can purchase products through the Kosher Katalog. You must provide a community code with your purchase order to complete the sale. The community code can be found on the Price Sheet located inside your copy of the catalog.
• Why do I have to provide a community code with my purchase order?
K.K. is sharing a percentage of the sales with participating communities, so it is critical for us to credit each sale to the proper community that helped generate the sale. Based on our business model, we are not able to sell products to people who cannot provide a community code with their purchase order.
• How do I know if Kosher Katalog is right for my community?
Kosher Katalog is a zero risk program for the community. It has the potential to raise significant funds to enrich the community's programs through sales from our product catalog. We provide the marketing material needed to create a successful sales program. We recommend taking a look at our Why K.K. page. Next, fill out our Sign Up Form. We will then contact you to discuss if our fundraising catalog is right for your community.
• As an Israeli Artist / Designer / Manufacturer, how do I know if Kosher Katalog is right for me?
There is 0% risk for Israeli artists and manufacturers. We also provide them a unique and rare opportunity to market their products in America. As part of our marketing efforts you will have a dedicated product page that highlights the talents of each artist and manufacturer. It is important to us that the families from our participating communities are not just buying a product, but contributing to a design ideology, and that they know exactly from whom they are purchasing in Israel.
• How does my purchase support American Jewish communities?
Kosher Katalog will credit your community with a percentage of the sales from your purchase. When you submit your Purchase order, we require you to provide us with your associated community so the community with get the credit it deserves and earned.
• Can I see product samples?
Yes. In some cases we can visit the community on a designated day to demonstrate the products and give the community an opportunity to see them up close and personal. All the products we offer have a 'Product page' with detailed description, product specs, photos and the product inspiration and information about the artist or designer who created it. Please contact us - we would like the opportunity to show you the high quality products that we offer.
• Can late orders be processed?
In certain circumstances and depending on product availability, late orders may be able to be processed. All of the products we represent are created by Israeli small manufacturers and designers. None of the products are "mass produced" and many are hand crafted. Together with the Israeli artist / designer / manufacturer will do our best to deliver your order on the due date. Considering that some products are hand crafted and are created by unique and time consuming methods, patience is advised. Please contact us to discuss any delivery concerns you may have.
• How Long Will it Take to Receive Our Order?
All products will be delivered to the community at a specified date(s). This date will be selected when the campaign is organized with the participating community. When you purchase your products, you will know our drop-off date so you can plan for gift giving, etc. On the Drop-Off date you should plan on picking up your ordered products from the community. Based on the size of your order, make sure to plan for proper transportation.
• Payments - Terms & Conditions
Full payment is expected when order is placed. We accept Credit Card, PayPal, and Western Union. No Checks or Cash.

• Who pays shipping charges from Israel?
Kosher Katalog pays for all shipments from Israel. The participating communities, their families and the Israeli artists / designers / manufacturers do NOT absorb the cost of shipping.
• Do we import items from anywhere other than Israel?
No. All of our items are 100% imported from Israel. We do our best to tell you all about our manufacturers. Their story is a part of our story and a part of your home. Check out our blog and leave us a comment!
• Is there a sales tax?
Yes, we are required by law to collect sales tax on all orders. However, we build sales tax into the product price. What you see listed on the Price Sheet is the total you pay for the product/item.
