In response to a request from the leadership of the United Arab Emirates, Orthodox Union Kosher, the world’s largest kosher certification agency, will be the leading kosher certification agency within the Emirates and do so in partnership with the local Jewish community.

OU Kosher will oversee kosher food in hotels throughout the Emirates, as well as events such as Expo 2020, which has been postponed to October 2021-March 2022.

The request comes following the success of OU Kosher facilitating the kosher food for the historic U.S. and Israel delegation’s visit to Abu Dhabi earlier this month.

“As the Jewish community in the United Arab Emirates continues to grow and due to the influx of Jewish tourists, there is a need for kosher food and a certification that is internationally known,” said OU Kosher CEO Rabbi Menachem Genack. “We are looking forward to partnering with the local Jewish community to provide kosher food and certification.”
