What make bagels "kosher"?

It is just a Jewish priest standing there and "blessing" them (or whatever exactly it is)? If that's the case, is there any reason the Jewish people couldn't contract with another bakery?

I'm not being funny here, or trying to be a jerk. I'm genuinely curious about this.

I can't believe that the Bagel Bin was the only kosher restaurant in Omaha. Omaha does have a large Jewish population.

No, being Kosher means that the ingredients for the food in the restaurant have been verified to meet the religious specifications i.e. no pork, no meat and dairy in contact etc...
I'm sure there is more to it than that, but I do know that this is a large part of it.

I believe a rabbi supervises the food preparations, and they follow Old Testament guidelines regarding food handling. No reason another company can't fill the need, to my knowledge, but it's a case of them being motivated to do so. If they can make enough to make it worth their while, someone will.

Ummm, wouldn't that make most bagels kosher then?

What ever happened to just being thankful for regular food?

Well, yeah --- most food actually is Kosher and if you look at food labels they will often have little symbols on them that indicate that they are Kosher.

It's no big deal and thats why I question that the bagel bin was the only kosher restaurant in Omaha.
