      Chief Rabbi Makes Surprise 2AM Visit to Market


      Mere weeks after being elected Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi David Lau surprised store managers and workers during a visit to a fruit and vegetable market in Tzrifin, an industrial area near Rishon LeZion. Accompanied by Chief RabbinateDirector General Oded Weiner and Rabbi Mordechai Biderman, Rabbi Lau and others inspected how the market handles the system of terumah and maaser, the act dictated by Torah law of separating donations and tithes from produce grown in Israel.
