Kosher food in a "kosher environment"?
"Jewish Atheist said...
It's not just that they criticise each other, but that they overstep their bounds. In Israel, one of the major kashrut organization refused certification to Pepsi because they had billboards with a woman in a bathing suit. (I guess your blog won't be getting certified kosher either.)"
This is another pet peeve of mine and I am glad our Atheist friend brought it up. The mission statement of the Kof-K, similar to that of many other supervisions is that, "Only those products and services meeting the strictest standards of Kosher law are permitted to display the symbol, which is protected under Federal law against unauthorized use. When consumers see the KOF-K on a product, they know they are buying food that meet the highest levels of Kashrus (Kosher law)."
So, you would think that there is not much room for alternative interpratations...WRONG! What does KOSHER SERVICE mean to you? Well, it seems if your food is kosher but neigborhood boys and girls want to eat pizza together on a Motsei Shabbos then the "kosher service" is not to standard...and will not get or would lose supervision.
I don't think I need to go into depth why this is a complete abuse of authority, only breeding contempt in the Jewish community.
