Israeli Attorney General Mandelblit Stymies Private Hechsherim

August 24, 2018 from the Matzav.com:

"Last year, Israel’s High Court ruled that restaurants may list the kosher ingredients they use and explain how kashrus is maintained in order to attract observant customers. Only establishments describing themselves as kosher would be in violation of the Rabbinate’s monopoly over kashrus."
"Several private hechsherim promptly utilized the loophole to begin certifying eateries as kosher, but Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has now stymied them by deciding that the High Court decision only applies to restaurant owners."
"Now, no external group may put up signs explaining why eateries are kosher or even affix their logo to such signs."
