The CRC Kosher application is your guide to the list of products recommended by the Chicago Rabbinical Council including Slurpees, Beverages, Starbucks products, Beer/Liquor, and Spices. For fruits and vegetables, the CRC Kosher Guide indicates whether or not the produce is recommended and how to check for insects and infestations.

In addition the CRC Kosher app contains the list of kosher symbols and certification agencies recommended by the CRC.

Additional features include search, sharing details with others via SMS or email and even “Ask the Rabbi” which you can use to ask for clarification from the CRC on particular items.

Apps are part of the community,” said Rabbi Dovid Cohen, the council’s administrative coordinator. “We realize this is how people are getting their information and want to provide that service.”

Last year the council released its first kosher foods app, cRc Kosher for the iPhone, which tells users whether a food item has been produced or prepared according to Jewish dietary laws.

We are continuously adding to our database. Our goal is to serve the needs of the kosher community,” said Cohen, who before joining the council served seven years with the Orthodox Union in New York City, the largest kosher-certifying agency in the world.

The app offers information on the appropriateness of more than 1,000 beverages, foods, liquors, and fruits and vegetables. On the Android version, users also get kosher-certification information on spices and over-the-counter vitamins and supplements. The council also provides email alerts on whether products such as Gummi Bears and Gatorade are kosher (Chicago Tribune).
