Israel: MK Moshe Gafni protests non-kosher food items being allowed into IDF kitchens

March 3, 2020 - from Arutz 7 :

"On Sunday, MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ) wrote a letter to Defense Minister MK Naftali Bennett (Yamina), protesting a new army directive permitting the introduction of non-kosher food items into IDF kitchens, and requesting the Minister's intervention on behalf of religious and traditional soldiers serving in the IDF, Srugim reported."

"Ever since the establishment of the State of Israel, it has been accepted that the IDF's kitchens would be kept kosher, and this is considered part of the State's "'status quo agreements.'"

"The directive also stipulates that the food items concerned are to be "stored in sealed containers, and should be eaten using disposable utensils and dishes. These food items are not to be processed in any way (eg. heated in a microwave oven, sliced etc.)."

"The matter was first brought to the attention of former MK Yitzhak Pindrus (UTJ), who was approached by the Tzav 1 organization on behalf of religious and traditional soldiers in the IDF. Pindrus then referred the matter to MK Gafni."
