In Israel, a new five month scholarship program being offered to young aspiring athletes – one of them could be you.
As part of the leadership team for the Tav, we are fully aware of how much time and effort has been volunteered to this important project. The Tav HaYosher is offered absolutely free to restaurants to ensure that our intentions remain l’shem shamayim – for the sake of Heaven. And we will remain a free service because of countless individuals who are dedicated to the Torah’s declaration V’asita et hayashar v’et hatov – You shall do what is righteous and what is good.
Yet the success of our project depends not only on our volunteers but on the community as a whole. We call on those who share these values to contact their favorite restaurants and ask them to sign onto the Tav HaYosher, to patronize restaurants that already carry the seal, and to spread the word about the critical role the Tav plays in upholding the Torah’s statues regarding the ethical treatment of employees.
In celebration of reaching 35 restaurants and expanding nationally, we will have an exciting event open to the public Wednesday, March 10, at Café 76 in the JCC in Manhattan. Rabbi Joseph Telushkin will be our featured speaker as we reflect on the progress of the past year and conduct a communal conversation about the future of the Tav.
Through communal commitment, may we see continued success in fulfilling our calling to be a mamlechet kohanim v’goy kadosh – a kingdom of priests and a holy people.

The growing revelations that the Obama State Department watered down public statements on the attack in order to cleanse them of any mention of al Qaeda and terrorism is a travesty.

Israel’s government did not want to liberate Jerusalem. Or to be more specific, the Labor and National Religious Party ministers did not want to liberate Jerusalem. “Who needs that whole Vatican?” Defense Minister Moshe Dayan explained at the time.
Last May, our organization, Uri L’Tzedek, officially launched the Tav HaYosher – “ethical seal” – to certify kosher restaurants that uphold three basic employee rights: the right to fair time, the right to fair pay, and the right to a safe work environment.
