Police examining irregularities in Jerusalem kashrut department and religious council

The battle being waged by Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Aryeh Stern to reform kashrut supervision in the capital was stepped up a notch on Wednesday when the concerns regarding the management of the Jerusalem Religious Council which has opposed the rabbis initiatives were brought in front of the Knesset Internal Affairs Committee.

Since being elected in November 2014, one of Stern’s priorities has been to improve the Jerusalem rabbinate’s kashrut supervision service and he requested staff in his office to examine the reliability and efficacy of the kashrut supervisors appointed by the Jerusalem Religious Council, numbering more than 300, who are supposed to provide daily supervision to some 1,500 kosher restaurants and businesses in the city.
