Young Israel Endorses Jewish Forum Food Bureau

Download PDF for this date

The Council of Young Israel, at its last meeting, endorsed the Jewish Forum Food Bureau which aims to bring order and control to the present chaotic state of affairs in the kashruth situation in this country. The membership of Young Israel will be asked to sign pledge cards stating that they will demand authoritative approval of all foods used at home, hotels, and restaurants. This is the beginning of a campaign to strengthen kashruth and place upon a sounder basis the supervision of foods prepared according to a strict adherence to the dietary laws.
