Restaurants Protest Rabbanut's High Fees
Restaurant owners from Jerusalem are coming out in protest of the Rabbanut kashrut organization, saying they charge unreasonably high fees.
"Recently kashrut supervisors from the Jerusalem Rabbinate threatened business owners with a high penalty for the use of the word 'kosher." It's time to promote alternatives to this embittered and discriminatory monopoly of the Chief Rabbinate of kashrut," wrote the organizers of the protest.
