Rabbi Avraham Yosef was convicted of violating the public trust for allegedly using his position as chief rabbi of Holon to further the interests of a family-run kosher certification organization.
'The only way to know those facts is real shimush, seeing what is actually happening in the field.'
MK Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) accused the chief rabbinate of enforcing inappropriate, capricious rules, saying, 'You can't count on the chief rabbinate's kosher certification because it is corrupt.'
One talkbacker said the kashrut certification is meaningless, because of the halachic concept of "minhag hamakom," the local practice. If it's been forbidden, it should stay so.
A new "Mehadrin" level Kashrut certification introduced by the Jerusalem Rabbinate is beginning to gain traction and save restaurants money.
