A Word Regarding Food at the IKEA Netanya Branch

8 Tammuz 5770
June 20, 2010

ikeaDespite the fact that there is a sign put up by IKEA saying that the restaurant is mehadrin, there is a regular hechsher from the Netanya Rabbinate. The restaurant has a private mashgiach who is there the regularly (tmidi) during operating hours.

Those kashrus arrangements are an old story.

What has now changed is that whereas in the past the meat dishes were either using meat/poultry products from the schita of Rav Machpud (Yoreh Deah) or Rav Rubin, as of “about two weeks ago”, per the mashgiach, everything is now Beit Yosef schita [not the Beit Yosef Badatz agency hechsher].

The mashgiach stresses that things are likely to stay as they are now.

This is not intended to reflect a change in standard, higher or lower, but rather to inform readers of the change in schita regarding meat/poultry products used at the facility.

As was reported recently by JKN, the IKEA Rishon L’Tzion branch eateries are under the supervision of Badatz Beit Yosef agency, but remember, one should always confirm a hechsher by seeking out a valid certificate before ordering as changes do occur.

    Thank you so much for all your hard work. You really are performing an amazing service. Even if you don’t write about a specific restaurant etc, your articles have made me want to keep my own eyes open a lot wider….
