IDF Starts New Department for Interested Female Soldiers: Army Kashrut

December 3, 2018 from the Jewish Press:

"For the first time, women will be able to fill positions as kosher food supervisors at IDF bases, according to Galei Tzahal on Thursday.
"The first group of applicants is expected to be put into position in two weeks."
"The decision to go ahead with the plan was given by head of the Personnel Directorate, Maj. Gen.l Moti Almoz, 14 years after the IDF initially decided to open the department to female soldiers."
"The military rabbinate had put the brakes on the move, but the Personnel Directorate has now ordered the military rabbinate to implement the decision and enlist recruits."
"The female supervisors will undergo a special military kashrut course for two-and-a-half weeks before taking up positions in kitchens and food-preparation facilities in numerous army units."
