Conference of Local Kashrus Vaadim Addresses Key Concerns

Chicago…While the focus of kashrus supervision generally falls on the large kashrus agencies, a conference on February 23rd and 24th in West Palm Beach will put the spotlight on local kashrus committees. Under the auspices of AKO (Association of Kashrus Organizations), the two day conference in Florida will address such topics as acceptance requirements for mashgichim, the level of supervision for both dairy and meat restaurants, supervision of establishments owned by one person that has both kosher and non-kosher establishments, koshering standards, vegetable checking, and the recent concerns over the infestation of raisins.
