The following translation of an Israeli kashrus alert is from the Houston Kashruth Association on September 24, 2009.

Kashrut Fraud Prevention Division of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel would like to remind all tourists of the following when visiting food establishments under their certification:

  • A photocopy of a kashrut certificate is invalid.
  • The store name on the sign must match the name on kashrut certificate.
  • The addresses on the kashrut certificate must match the store address.
  • The certificate must be current, not expired.
  • The local rabbinate certifying agency must be the rabbinate of that city, not from another city.
At times, stores without a kashrut certification will display certificates pertaining to sealed items they sell, but that does not cover the store. One is advised to make phone contact with the mashgiach whose name and number appear on the certificate to validate legitimacy. This presents the actual facts from the Hebrew original but is not a literal translation.
