I e-mailed them a rootstock question today for etrog since there are some limitations on it being grafted for kosher requirements. A Jewish friend was suggesting I try to explore this market.

Personally, I wouldn't want Etrog on a dwarfing rootstock -- especially in a cooler winter climate. I would be satisfied with Etrog on a seedling of itself or a Citron-cultivar rootstock. If you want to save some shipping charges, I can check with the sources here and bring you one later this spring when I travel to Davis.
