Rabbi De-Certifies Kosher Bagel Shop

The Detroit Bagel shop in West Bloomfield is no longer certified kosher according to Rabbi Jason Miller, director of Kosher Michigan.

The shop was under Kosher Michigan’s certification for two years offering an array of bagels, fishes, cheeses and drinks under Miller’s supervision.

“Proprietor Richard Steinik has decided to begin offering non-kosher deli meats as he does at his Livonia-based Detroit Bagel location and Kosher Michigan can therefore no longer offer its certification,” Miller said.

Two other Oakland County kosher bagel establishments under Kosher Michigan’s certification maintain their certification. Bagel Factory on 12 Mile Road at Telegraph Road in Southfield and New York Bagel Bakery on Orchard Lake Road in West Bloomfield remain kosher establishments.

Kosher Michigan is the kosher supervision and certification initiative of Rabbi Jason Miller, a Conservative rabbi, based in Metropolitan Detroit. Rabbi Miller promotes kosher observance through the supervision and certification of select institutions, vendors, and products meeting several criteria.
