 Who We Are

Rabbi Shloima Isaacson - Kashrus Coordinator and President of the KOA lives in Passaic New Jersey, and is the Rav of K’hal Bais Dovid.  He has served in the realm of Kashrus for the past 37 years, with positions in the Vaad Hoeir of St. Louis, the Kof-K in the Midwest, and Rabbinical Field Supervisor for the KOF-K.  He is the bearer of several Semichos from prominent Rabbanim including Rabbi Ephraim Yollis of Philadelphia zt’’l, Rabbi Eliezer Levin  of Detroit zt’’l, and the Tenker Rav- Rav Shloima Zalman Friedman zt’’l. 


Rabbi Chaim Shulem Isaacson, Rav of Khal Bais Shloime in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, is the executive director of K.O.A. Rabbi Isaacson initiated the Orthodox Association for the Observance of Kashrus a kiruv organization with its primary goal of re-awakening the importance of Kashrus to people who were not yet observant. This project caused a greater demand for kosher, thus the KOA.
