About Us

dekelbaumsShalom Strictly Kosher Market was established in 1974. When Max and Anita Z"L Dekelbaum opened Shalom Kosher, the store was only half the size and offered only fresh meats and chicken as well as deli, smoked fish, and sliced cheeses. Thirty years ago, there was a very limited selection of kosher packaged grocery items available to consumers. Today is a different story. Now Shalom stocks a wide variety of grocery items, meats, chicken, fish, as well as a full-service bakery, deli, and frozen items. Max and Anita Z"L have passed the store down to a second generation. Their two sons, Larry and Steve started working right out of school, and Shaukat Karimi joined the ranks over 25 years ago. With 5 Dekelbaum grandchildren, there is sure to be a third generation to follow in their footsteps.

In 1994 Max’s Kosher Café was created as a kosher fast casual restaurant. The restaurant is very spacious and can accommodate large groups. The menu includes schawarma and falafel, hamburgers, deli sandwiches, fried chicken, soups and salads, and a great dinner menu. Max’s also operates in several venues including FedEx Field, Nationals Park, and even the National Mall.

Signature Caterers was established in 2000. It serves as a full catering service for the Washington Metro area. We have become one of the top kosher caterers in the area and are known for a creativity, quality, and service.

In 2008 Shalom Kosher, Max’s Kosher Café, and Signature Caterers became The Shalom Group.

On October 29, 2012 Shalom Kosher closed its University Boulevard Location to prepare for the move to the new location. On October 31,2012 the new Shalom Kosher opened its doors in Kemp Mill Shopping Center, Silver Spring, Maryland.
