Welcome to The Kashrut Authority's exciting website, which has been completely re-designed and made much more user-friendly, with many exciting new features. It is also extremely comprehensive in the amount of information available, and with many facilities for you to ask all your Kashrut questions.
Since the establishment of The Kashrut Authority, (formerly the NSW Kashrut Authority Inc.) in 1990 by the merging of the kashrut committees of The Sydney Beth Din and The Yeshiva Rabbinate, kosher products and services available to the Australian Jewish community have literally exploded in number.
We, in Sydney are well served by 11 kosher eateries where one can have anything from a full meal to a quick coffee and cake, or grab something to have “on the run”.
Add to these the bakeries, the delis, the kosher supermarkets, two dedicated kosher butcheries and the caterers, and there is little to stop any Sydney resident from keeping kosher.
Thanks to the ongoing commitment of Rabbi Moshe D Gutnick and his assisting Rabbinic and supervisory staff, the number of kosher proprietary goods which are now on general surpermarket shelves, reaches into the many thousands, with new products coming on stream almost every other month.
Exciting additions that will be made to the website in the coming weeks will include a “KA Blog”, a discussions page and a general FAQ page, which will be open to any questions about Kashrut or The Kashrut Authority in general.
We wish you many hours of happy browsing through the many facets of this new KA website, and we trust you will find it as helpful and as informative as we have striven to make it.
