The event, marking an exciting development for both CK and Mark Moran, was sponsored by MMV and co-hosted by Jewish Learning Centre (JLC) and CK.

The capacity crowd at the stunning roof top venue was treated to canapès before being welcomed by MMV’s COO Richard Catto and David Sandler, CK President. Keynote speaker Israeli Commando Rami Sherman was introduced by JLC’s Rabbi Blackman who is a member of the CK Rabbinical Council.

“We are inspired by MMV’s commitment to providing kosher meals of the highest standard to its residents, and to make such a magnificent venue available to the community,” commented Rabbi Blackman.

Community Kashrut was formed 3 years ago under the auspices of The Council of Orthodox Synagogues and The NSW Jewish Board of Deputies. The Rabbinic Administrator is Rabbi Yedidya Krauthammer.

David Sandler articulated CK’s mission: “We believe that the provision of kashrut should be a transparent endeavour; the charges should be simple, available and understandable; the market should be free and open; the mashgichim – or kosher supervisors – should be presentable, uniformed and well-trained; the business dealings should be professional; and the accountability to the community must be absolute.

“The opportunity to be able to assist with the provision of kosher food to Mark Moran’s clients and their visitors is something that we are extremely proud of as it aligns with our values 100%,” he said.  “The high-level goal is that the provision of kashrut should not be a private enterprise but rather a community endeavour – representative of the community, run by the community, ultimately to ensure that the community has access to the best Kosher system with the resources available,” he stressed, reiterating the goals of CK.

The canapè’s created by award-winning MMV Executive Chef, Gordon Manuel, included exotic delights such as bobotie, chicken sushi, Thai chicken soup, and succulent mini burgers showcasing the remarkable kosher facilities that have been established at MMV.

To cap off the memorable event, guest speaker Rami Sherman deeply moved the audience with his riveting and thoroughly prepared first-hand account of the famous Entebbe Operation which rescued hostages from the hijacked Air France flight 1976.

    What is glaringly missing from the comments by the CK chair is a commitment to maintain – or even go beyond – accepted worldwide kashrus standards.

    This is especially the case given CK allows caterers that it certifies to also cater treif. This is a radical departure from the norm among respected kashrus agencies worldwide (and locally, Kosher Australia, the Kashrut Authority and Adass do not permit dual catering for obvious reasons.)

    It appears that the CK chairman is more concerned with having mashgichim wear uniforms!
