Kosher Symbols

Kosher symbols stand for various authorities on what is considered to be Kosher, or "fit to eat," under the Laws of Kashrut. These authorities, to the best of my knowledge, have a legal right, in whatever city, state, county, province, or country that they reside in, to certify certain foods to be Kosher. Jewish Celiacs Newsletter makes no claim to their real and actual knowledge, or legal expertise. As far as Jewish Celiacs Newsletter is concerned, these "authorities" do not have anything to do with food that is, or is not, gluten-free, or even organically grown, which is not the concern of this web page.


To quote Kosher Quest, "In the U.S.A., the kosher certifying agencies with which we are familiar did not start until the 1920’s and 1930’s, but their development can be traced back over 200 years. The need for kosher supervision in the United States dates back to Colonial times. As early as 1660, a Jew from Portugal applied for a license to sell kosher meat in New Amsterdam. The first recorded complaint was in 1771 against the Shochet Moshe. In 1774, the widow, Hetty Hays, complained that her shochet (ritual slaughterer) was selling non-kosher meat. This led to the first court license revocation against a kosher butcher in 1796. ..... The O/U, O/K, Star-K and Kof-K are the largest relied upon kosher agencies in the world today."

It is important to note that these agencies frequently try to inform the consumer regarding the full status of the products under their supervision. The following are some of their designations with their meanings:

The Kosher symbols (signs) below are arranged in alphabetical order according to their graphic's name. If you have any questions about the authenticity of one, or all of the "authorities," please contact them and not me, or JCN. Go to Kosher Quest for their contact information. I will be adding e-mail addresses to all the Kosher Certifiers symbols below in the near future. Thank you.

PS - If you know of any other Kosher symbols that Jewish Celiacs Newsletter can put on display below, please contact JCN, or e-mail me at if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about any Kosher symbol.
