The presence of an OU certification mark attests to the vitality of the Jewish community in the US.
Today, kosher consumers are more observant; they’re looking for a high standard of kashrus.
I have worked for the klal my entire career, and I must say that the people at the OU have an extraordinary selflessness.
The OU became the premiere source of knowledge on kashrut for the entire Jewish community.
In 1994, I was a member of the Kashrut Commission when the OU gave kosher certification to Hershey’s. It was a seminal moment.
