Hamilton, Ontario, Tries Community Control of Kashruth
By Norman Edell
This piece highlights Hamilton, Ontario's experience with taking control of community Kashruth. Hamilton is a small community with a Jewish population of approximately 3,000 predominantly Orthodox, with four Orthodox congregations and one Reform, and a central representative body (the Council of Jewish Organizations), which has successfully integrated most communal services including fund-raising, education, public relations, social welfare, etc. As in most communities, the problem of community Kashruth was regarded as a communal "hot potato", and, therefore, avoided, since there was widespread cynicism as to the possibility of achieving community control. This piece highlights the Hamilton experience and the outcome, which resulted in the establishment of the new Vaad Hakashruth of the Council of Jewish Organizations.
