    Reform Jews "can" eat pork, shellfish and other non-kosher foods if they "choose" to. So, some do and some don't.

    If you're inviting someone who's Jewish to dinner, it's usually best to ask whether they observe kosher dietary laws. there's a whole bunch of things that are considered un-kosher...

    pork

    shellfish - shrimp, clams, oysters, lobster, crab, etc.

    eel

    octopus

    any predatory birds like hawks, or similar

    serving meat with milk products - i.e. cheeseburgers, creamed chipped beef, beef, or lamb with cream sauces or even served "with" anything containing milk or dairy products like yogurt, or cheese.

    A realy unusual one used to be Oreo cookies...they weren't kosher because the cream in the middle was made with lard (beef fat) The Nabisco company has since changed the formula for the cream middle and made them kosher.

    Only during the Passover season: both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews don't eat leavened breads. Ashkenazi Jews cannot eat things like rice, beans, or other grains or things that are made from grains (i.e. anything made with high-fructose corn syrup, like Coke & Pepsi). Sephardic Jews are allowed to eat foods made from grains during Passover.

    Some do, some don't. A lot won't have it in their homes, but will have it when they eat out.
