VA’AD HARABANIM OF GREATER SEATTLE - DIRECTORY OF KOSHER PRODUCTS

March 1999

We are pleased to present you with the directory of products under the supervision of the Seattle Va’ad. Also included are products that are supervised by other Kashruth organizations. Finally, please find attached a listing of symbols from Kashruth agencies that are approved by the Va’ad.

Establishments/Products listed in bold are currently under the supervision of the Va’ad. The listings in italics are products that are supervised by other Kashruth organizations, are acceptable to the Va’ad and are available in the Northwest (hence their listing). The listing of any "non-Va’ad" product is not necessarily an endorsement of that Kashruth organization, only the specific product listed. The non-Va’ad product listings appear in this directory either because the product has no listing, only a "K," or is supervised by a Kashruth agency that is not on the attached list. Addresses are listed when the product is available on site; all addresses are in Seattle unless otherwise noted. If you have any questions about this directory or Kashruth in general, contact your Rabbi or the Va’ad office at (206) 760-0805, or try our e-mail address --seavaad@aol.com.
