Poland Has New Cohort of Kosher Supervisors

Following an increasing demand for kosher food in Poland, 17 Polish Jews graduated from a seminar certifying them as kashrut supervisors.

The graduates, most men and women in their 20 s and 30s, participated in a three-day training seminar in Krakow, offered by the Jerusalem-based Shavei Israel organization under the auspices of Poland’s Chief Rabbi Michael Shudrich.

Wednesday’s graduation marks the first time since the Holocaust that Jews have been certified as kashrut supervisors in Poland, according to the organization.

The increased demand for more locally produced kosher foods has come as a result of a reemerging Jewish community in Poland, as well as a rise in Jewish tourism to Poland, according to Shavei Israel.
