Rabbis 'Standing as a Wall' vs. High Court, Missionary Bakery

Three weeks ago, a panel of three High Court judges decided in favor of a motion by Penina Comforti, a messianic Jew and active missionary, and ruled that the Chief Rabbinate and the Rabbi of Ashdod must rescind their refusal to grant kashrut certification to the 'Penina' pie bakery that she owns.

Rabbi Yosef Sheinin, Ashdod’s Chief Rabbi, subsequently sent a letter to Rabbi Zalman Melamed of Beit El, asking how to proceed after the High Court ruling.
