We are pleased to announce that Rabbi Alan W. Bright has taken over full supervision of Kashrut
for Shaare Zedek, effective March 31, 2023.

You may be aware that Kosher certification was previously under the guidance of the Jewish Community Council of Montreal (JCC). The JCC recently implemented new requirements for its ongoing Kosher supervision. However, after careful research and consideration, the SZ Board of Directors determined that the new requirements raised serious legal concerns, and accordingly unanimously decided that it would be best to end SZ's long-standing relationship with the JCC.

Rabbi Bright is an Orthodox ordained Rabbi, a member of the Montreal Board of Rabbis and the co-founder of the Conservative Beit Din of Montreal. He has been the sole supervisor of Kashrut observance in SZ's upstairs kitchen for many years for Weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Brit Milahs and other lifecycle events. Now, Rabbi Bright will extend his supervision to SZ's downstairs kitchens. As always, the highest standards of Halachic Kashrut will continue to be maintained at all times, both inside our building and at all outside events.

Chag Pesach Sameach.
