In addition to the ability to search for more than 600,000 products, manufactured in nearly 8,000 plants, in more than 90 countries around the world — the App provides the most up-to-date kosher alerts; new product updates; and allows easy access to ask a question or to call the OU Kosher information hotline.

 Harvey Blitz, Chair of the OU Kashrut Commission, said, “With the support of Rabbi Menachem Genack, OU Kosher Chief Executive Officer, and Rabbi Moshe Elefant, OU Kosher Chief Operating Officer, we extend our gratitude for their dedication and efforts towards the development of this App to Gary Magder, OU Digital Media Director and his team: Shelomo Dobkin, Joe Neuman, and Nadav Hartzshtark; to  Dr. Sam Davidovics, OU Senior Information Officer and his team, most notably Sara Karasik; as well as to those from OU Kosher: Rabbi Moshe Zywica, Executive Rabbinic Coordinator and Rabbi Eli Eleff, Rabbinic Coordinator-Kosher Consumer Relations.”
