Welcome to Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim’s Kashrus program leading to becoming a diplomate or associate in Industrial Kashrus Management. The program offers 2 course protocols: 1) a certificate for management and sales staff; 2) an associate certificate for operations staff in manufacturing and in receiving, warehousing, and logistics. It will provide your key stake-holders with the background they need to easily and efficiently implement and manage an on-going kosher compliant SOP in your factory.
The program is interactive: it includes written lessons, reviews, and tests; videos; regular follow-up live Webinars with YPS staff; and a robust Social Media presence. Moreover, be aware that this is a W.I.P, a “work in progress”. Improvements and new components will be ongoing and your feedback will be invaluable.
So often we’ve heard from individuals responsible for an industrial kosher program—“While the Corporate decision was made to acquire a Kosher certification for the product lines, how do we actually make the factory Kosher? No one in our factory is Jewish or knowledgeable about even where we begin.” For management and operations staff alike, the YPS Kashrus programs’ 2 protocols will provide the background and lay out clearly the processes involved in kosher certification. Written and presented in clear English (or Spanish, or French, or Vietnamese, or Tagalog— or whatever your staff requires!) diplomates and associates will bring a new sophistication to the workplace regarding kosher standards and be able to understand and anticipate the questions to be asked and the issues which will be addressed. This “situational awareness” will bear fruit in improved productivity and less down-time and waste due to kashrus error.
The program addresses the fundamentals necessary to appreciate just what the kosher program is all about and what the Rabbi really does (no, he doesn’t bless anything!). What is kosher, how does kosher law impact production and equipment management through the processes of “kosherization”, ingredient management and documentation requirements in a context of kosher compliance, and insights to industry practice for dairy, baking, oil production, canning, and fish production, and more—all are part of the curriculum.
Discover today how business people from around the world are learning to understand their kosher program in a format designed for those who work full-time and seek structure and professional development.
