R' Heinemann
Rabbi Moshe Heinemann
Rabbinic Administrator

Rabbi Moshe Heinemann is highly regarded as a leading international authority in Jewish law. Having mastered the intricacies of Jewish law and the complex world of modern technology, he is regularly consulted by rabbinic and industrial leaders for his in-depth knowledge and practical application of science and religion. Rabbi Heinemann's expertise has served him well as the Rabbinic Administrator of the STAR-K, a position he has held since 1971. The STAR-K's well-respected and trusted name can be attributed, in no small measure, to its uniqueness--all kashrus related matters are the sole responsibility of Rabbi Heinemann, and the rabbinic staff answers directly, and only, to him. Its position as a non-profit lay organization further strengthens his hand, by not presenting a conflict of interest which might compromise its high kashrus standards. Rabbi Heinemann is also the rabbi of Agudath Israel of Baltimore, a position he has held since 1981.
