There was one, but you can thank the OU for shutting it down for non-kashrut related reasons.July 23, 2013 3:19 am at 3:19 am #967094–Participant

IIRC this particular instance was for non-food related reasons, not non-kashrut related reasons.July 23, 2013 3:45 am at 3:45 am #967095
The OU was against mixed dancing. Most of the ship’s business came from kosher-keeping Jews who still wanted to be able to dance on their anniversaries and whatnot. The type of economic bracket that would oppose giving kosher supervision to a place that allowed mixed dancing probably couldn’t afford such a cruise.July 23, 2013 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #967096mustangriderMember
thanks for your posts e/o – but I guess that means there is none?
If a/o does know of one please let me know!
Or if anyone has any other ideas of something special….July 23, 2013 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #967097charliehallParticipant
There are several OU member congregations that have mixed dancing at their annual shul dinners.July 23, 2013 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #967098WolfishMusingsParticipant

When and where I grew up, there was an OU member congregation with mixed seating in the sanctuary (this shul also had a pre-selichos dance, strange to say). I found an article from 2005 about an OU shul in Denver that was the last holdout. According to the article, the OU had been trying to “convert” their remaining mixed seating members since the 1980s.July 24, 2013 11:30 am at 11:30 am #967100
Young Israels used to have mixed dances in the 1950s.
I don’t support mixed dancing, but I think that using it as a pretext for determining the kashrut of an establishment’s food (especially while opposing people who want to have “ethical certifications” to reflect their values) is hypocritical and a poor decision.
