Vaad certifies Alwatan as kosher

Louisville has a new kosher bakery. The Vaad HaKashruth of Louisville has koshered the kitchen at Alwatan, the Middle Eastern grocery on Klondike Lane, where owner Suleiman Talib bakes pita on a conveyor oven he had shipped from Ashkalon, Israel. Rabbi Simcha Snaid of the Vaad koshered the kitchen this week, a process that lasted one hour and involved pouring pots of boiling water over the equipment and utensils. Ohad Holzberg, co-founder of Naked Hummus, purchases pita from Talib. “As a business owner of Israeli food, I see [it] as important to have kosher and fresh food in town,” said Holzberg, an Israeli. Talib is a Palestinian from Ramallah. (Community photos by Jessica Budnick and Lee Chottiner)
