Kosher Certification

Baked by Yael has two kosher certifications: one from Rabbi Aaron Alexander at Adas Israel Congregation and one from DC Kosher.

All of our ingredients are hecschered (certified kosher), and our kitchen is certified kosher. Our dairy ingredients are not all Chalav Yisrael.

We are supervised by Rabbi Aaron Alexander at Adas Israel Congregation, located four blocks down the street from our bakery. Rabbi Alexander is a certified mashgiach (kosher supervisor) by the Conservative Movement, and serves on its Committee for Jewish Law and Standards.

We are also certified by DC Kosher. DC Kosher is a project of Ohev Sholom – The National Synagogue (OSTNS), cofounded by the OSTNS clergy Maharat Ruth Friedman and Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld. OSTNS is an Orthodox synagogue in Washington, DC. For more information, visit
