Kashrus Training Program
This widely acclaimed four-day program provides rabbonim, certifying agency administrators, kollel members, and others serving in klei kodesh, the opportunity to meet the personalities behind the internationally recognized and trusted STAR-K symbol. Attendees will be provided with a hands-on, practical application of the Shulchan Aruch, and learn how to structure a kashrus organization, along with the ins and outs of kashrus challenges at various venues.
Seminar participants will be taken behind the scenes of a first class luxury hotel’s kosher kitchen and a manufacturing plant. They will also benefit from lectures delivered by STAR-K administrators; audio-visual presentations; and a hands-on practicum to find the less obvious thrips and aphids hiding in a restaurant’s vegetables.
