Kosher inspectors meet in Shanghai E-mail

Kosher inspectors, more commonly known as Mashgichim, from kosher certification agency Star-K met for a weekend Shabbaton in Shanghai from 9 to 14 January.

This was the first time a weekend retreat was organised for training and co-ordination with nine of the 12 supervisors posted to the region, two regional administrators and two department heads from the home office in Baltimore, US.

Star-K maintains a regional office in Shanghai and an apartment for the supervisors.

In the Pan-Asia Kosher Training Seminar, kosher inspectors of Star-K Kosher Certification participated in a series of training sessions especially related to plants and vegetables, covering such topics as the Rabbinical prohibitions in kosher law and the correct process for removing insects from vegetables.

The Rabbinical head of StarK, Rabbi Moshe Heinemann, also delivered a lively interactive video address.
