Out of Town Kashrus with Rabbi Nosson Dubin of Houston Kosher

In today’s episode Rabbi Nosson Dubin shares with us what it is like to “do kashrus” in an out-of-town community. 

We talk about a wide array of topics, including:

  • The challenges of kosher supervision in a place where everyone knows you personally.
  • The mandate of ensuring that kosher food is available to local consumers.
  • How one small conversation changed the entire paradigm of kosher supervision.
  • The Kosher Institute of America’s mashgiach training program.
  • What it’s like to participate in the AKO Executive Committee.

and, of course: 

  • How to run a Kosher Chili Cookoff!
