The Lehigh Valley Kashrut Commission is a committee of the Hebrew Family League (HFL), a tax exempt not for profit organization under IRS section 501(c)3. The Hebrew Family League, founded in 1961, is a volunteer organization that oversees the LVKC, as well as the Jewish community’s Mikvah (Ritual Bath House) and Chevra Kadisha (Jewish Burial Society).
The Kashrut Commission has a volunteer board of directors, headed by interim President Bob Levin-Dando. The board oversees business issues. Decisions of Jewish law are governed by our Vaad Halachah, a volunteer group of local rabbis, headed by Rabbi David Wilensky, rabbi of Congregation Sons of Israel in Allentown.
Rabbi Jonathan Powers has years of experience with the national hashgachot as well as with commercial food production. Rabbi Powers also serves as a Mashgiach for The Noshery at Muhlenberg College on behalf of the Star-K.
