Israel: High Court Delivers A Blow To Chief Rabbinate Kashrus

September 13, 2017: The YeshivaWorld:

The Israeli Supreme Court is permitting companies to list their commitment to halacha and kashrus without callling themselves "kosher".
"The Reform Movement in Israel had filed a petition with the High Court of Justice challenging the Chief Rabbinate of Israel’s exclusive monopoly on kashrus."
"By a majority of five judges against two, it was determined that a restaurant that does not hold a kosher certificate may not advertise itself as “kosher”, but judges ruled, the restaurant is entitled to present a “declaration of truth ” regarding the standards of kashrus that are maintained meticulously, and the manner of supervising their observance, which also includes an explicit clarification that he does not have a certificate of kashrut."
" This also permits private agencies to provide kashrus by displaying such a document in its name."


Israel - Consumers will demand to see kashrut supervision'

September 17, 2017: The Arutz 7:
"Rabbi Raphael Yochai, the director of the Chief Rabbinate division for Kashrut fraud, told Arutz Sheva that he is not comcerned by the Supreme Court decision allowing people to present their own private Kashrut without providing a certification."
