I read a quote from an interview with people who immagrated to the US and lived on the lower East side of Manhattan in the first half of the 20th century and I didn't understand what it meant:
"You know, when they needed the Rabbi for what is called the 'ashkocha' to deliver the seal of approval"
Does ashkocha refer to a specific event of is it just a 'seal of approval' for anything?

thats "hashgacha." it means literally "supervision" and can be used in any context (a "mashgiach" in a yeshiva is the supervisor of the students) but usually refers to rabbinic supervision to certify that a certain product or establishment is kosher.
