Does The Los Angeles Jewish Federation Keep Kosher At Its Events?

This email was forwarded to me:

The [John] Fishel banquet has NO hashgacha and is cooked in their kitchen on the only set of cookware and dishes of the Center.

Judy Fisher, in charge, wrote that on request they will special order kosher meals and double wrap them to heat.

They will be ordered from "Orange Delight since we are ordering only 1 or 2. Judy"

I requested that she make this known to kosher consumers, lest they arrive only to discover their food is not kosher. I have not seen such a notice.

Federation no longer holds to any kosher requirements. It may be time for a Jewish community response.
