High Court ruling strengthens Chief Rabbinate’s monopoly over kashrut

In a huge blow to independent kashrut authorities, the High Court of Justice ruled on Monday that restaurants may not use the words “kosher” and “under supervision,” or present themselves as a kosher establishment in any way, unless they have a kashrut license from the rabbinate.

The decision actually strengthens the monopoly of the chief rabbinate over kashrut licensing, since until now independent kashrut authorities have been able to use supervisions certificates and the word “under supervision.”
