Kashrut reform: Bennett announces 3 levels of kashrut

Minister of Religious Services Naftali Bennett and Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau announced Monday that there will be three different levels of kashrut for food operations. Another reform to be established is that kashrut supervisors will be employed by external companies.


The deputy minister, Eli Ben-Dahan, said the main purpose of the reforms is "to return the public's trust in kashrut, to regularize work relations, detach foreign interests, and to upgrade the kashrut array with new and transparent technology." (Kobi Nachshoni)
