Israeli Supreme Court demands chief rabbinate implement kashrut reform by September 2018

May 10, 2017- from the Jerusalem Post:

The High Court of Justice issued an ultimatum to the Chief Rabbinate on Wednesday instructing it to end the practice whereby restaurants and other food businesses directly pay the salaries of kashrut supervisors by September 2018."
"This phenomenon, which has led to sever malpractice and corruption within the kashrut industry, is one of the most egregious problems with the chief rabbinate’s kashrut supervision service and it is hoped that ending the business-supervisor nexus will lead to improvements in kashrut standards. "
"These recommendations were adopted by the Council of the Chief Rabbinate last month."
