Ministers to debate two bills on kashrut today

Kashrut legislation proposed by Kulanu MK Rachel Azaria, designed to allow independent kashrut authorities to operate while turning the Chief Rabbinate into the industry regulator, is set to come before the Ministerial Committee on Legislation on Monday.

At the same time, a separate bill on kashrut proposed by Bayit Yehudi MK Betzalel Smotrich – which is intended to unify kashrut standards, create different levels of rabbinate kashrut certification and introduce professional standards for kashrut supervisors – is also scheduled for debate in the committee.
