The Mashgiach: Friend of the Staff, or Ruling with a Staff?

What is the role of the Mashgiach at a catered event - is he there to enforce the laws, or be a comrade in arms? Join Rabbi Dov Schreier, a Rabbinic Coordinator with OU Kashruth possessing special expertise in food service, as he examines the role of the rabbinic supervisor. How does he maintain control of the kitchen without alienating the cooks? How does he address the issues posed even by the cleaning crew? Tune in for a talk given by someone who’s been in the trenches! This presentation was recorded live at the Adelphia Talmudical Academy in Adelphia, NY, on February 25, 2009.
