October 16, 2012
On Thursday, October 4, 2012 the proprietor of the Beach Bakery Cafe at 112 Main Street in Westhampton Beach, obtained approvals from the Village Board of Westhampton Beach to begin his renovation and expansion project. For many months now, the proprietor has made it clear that his new establishment will be non-kosher.
Since an ongoing commitment by an establishment to Kashrut observance is essential for the integrity of our certifying it, and consistent with our duty and obligations to the Jewish community of Westhampton Beach, and the Jewish community at large, as of Wednesday morning, October 17, 2012, the Beach Bakery Cafe will no longer be under the Kosher Supervision of The Hampton Synagogue.
We are pleased to inform you that in light of this development, several well known kosher establishments have now expressed their desire to open in the village. Our commitment is to have a new kosher establishment in place by Spring 2013.
