Of these and other items do not have a proper hechsher for bishul yisroel and pas yisroel, and obviously not cholov yisroel. Lot’s of great things but make sure you know what to look for. They have very good brown rice pasta, usually 1 or 2 dollars a bag for what they sell for 5 or 6 in kosher supermarkets.

Pas and bishul yisroel etc.

Keep in mind not all kosher symbols keep your same standards. But yes it is a great place to shop.

Trader Joe sells cholov yisroel kosher feta cheese from Israel, the brand is “Pastures of Eden”, it is in a yellow and green package.

Also I’m not positive but I think the “Brooklyn Babka” is pas yisroel. (The reason I’m not sure is that I don’t buy cake in the first place.)

Trader Joe’s also has maple sugar candies in the shape of leaves at this time of year.

No really a secret.

No really a secret.

I guess it hasn’t been well know to some city lovers. Many shluchim and Jewish families that live in far out places have been relying on Trader Joe’s for many of their kosher staples for well over 20 years.

Brooklyn babka is made by greens bakery in Williamsburg and half moon is also pas yisroel from a known frum Brooklyn bakery ( don’t remember the name this second) I know this first hand from a well known mashgiach in la . Also the kosher meats are from Teva meats under good hashgocho but not for lubavitchers. Know this first hand that person that works in the meat industry in la.
