The Continuing Saga of Morano at the Shuk

morano-shuk-agrippas-st-store-signs22Once again, the kashrus status of the Morano branch located at the corner of Agrippas and Machane Yehuda Streets in Jerusalem has changed. This time, Badatz Beit Yosef and Badatz Belz Machzikei Hadas have returned their certification to the store, which also has a kosher certificate from the Jerusalem Rabbinate.

In all cases, the three agencies mentioned above, only certify the seeds, dried fruits and nut products, NOT the large array of candies sold at the branch. The store lost is certification recently from the Badatz agencies due to the “many problematic candies” sold, but it appears that has been rectified.

In short, the situation is back to what it was before the kashrut certifications were revoked and one opting to buy sweets at this store must inspect each item to ascertain the level of kashrus since the candies include many hechsherim. Some items that I checked had hechsherim from sources that I for one am unfamiliar with.

    Thanks for the article. Just a little comment, the name is MORENO not Morano, so this should be changed as it may create some confusion…
