The Vaad Harabonim of Queens strives for the highest attainable standard of kashrus in its certified establishments. We are proud of the reputation we have earned as an example for other community Vaadim to emulate. Whenever the Vaad receives an application for certification of a new establishment, a careful study of the proposed business as well as the reliability of its owners is undertaken. Only after verifying the facts, touring the establishment, meeting with the owners and, where applicable, the managers and chefs, the Vaad's Kashrus Administrator formulates a recommendation for whether to accept the new establishment and under what terms. The recommendation is then brought before the Vaad's Kashrus Committee for discussion and modification before it is presented to the full Vaad for approval.
All products sold in VHQ certified supermarkets are considered acceptable by the Vaad Harabonim of Queens. This is not to be taken as an endorsement of the certification symbol appearing on each product.
Though the Vaad Harabonim of Queens endeavors to screen each and every product sold in our certified supermarkets for kashrus acceptability before it is placed on the shelf, human error can never be completely ruled out. If you question the acceptability of a particular item, please contact the Vaad office at 718-520-9060 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The public is advised to check for a valid kashrus certificate when visiting any establishment. Do not rely upon expired or altered kashrus certificates!
