eida-chareidit4Following is a list of pizza and falafel shops nationwide under the supervision of ‘Badatz Eida Chareidit. The list is a translation of the Eida’s Madrich Kashrus, 61st Edition, published in Nissan 5771. (final of the Eida lists)

One must always check for a valid kosher certificate prior to ordering in a restaurant or eatery as changes do occur.

I have inserted the ‘meat’, ‘dairy’ and ‘parve’ designations with the exception of pizza shops.

    What does that mean The hecsher DOES NOT apply to deliveries. ?!
    Does this mean the Eidah doesnt stand behind the delivery of any establishment? I dont get it?

    YECHIEL: It simply means that deliveries usually do not comply Halacha as far as properly sealing items in compliance with Shulchan Aruch. Therefore, the hechsher announces if you receive a pizza pie from an Eida store, the hechsher ended when the pie left the premises because the boxes are not sealed as Halacha demands. This is Halacha not an Eida chumra.

    It goes like this – חבית חמפג. Chatichas dag (fish), basar (meat), yayin (wine) and tekhelet, when entrusted to non-Jews (and for this purpose includes anyone who is not makpid on kashrus, or in the case of tekhelet, on tekhelet) need two chotamot or simanim.

    ‘Champag’ = cholov, mureiss (fish juice),pas (bread), gevian need one chotam or siman

    Since the multitudes probably don’t know this, why don’t they institute a proper seal? Moreover how can they give a hechsher to a store that is acting against halacha and causing others to stumble?

    A few corrections:

    Pizza in Jerusalem #12. Jerusalem (21 Beit Yisrael Street)
    Should be ‘Jerusalem 2 (1 Beit Yisrael Street)’ and that was their old address, they moved a few months ago to Zonnenfeld Street, I’m not sure what number.

    Pizza in Jerusalem #20. Ya’aleh (16 Shamgar Street – Beit Yisrael)
    This address is not in Beit Yisrael, it’s in the Rav Shefa complex. They actually used to have a branch in Beit Yisrael, but it closed down more than a year ago.

    Falafel in Jerusalem #14. Taim Pe (15 Chassidei Karlin)
    As of more than a year ago this store is no longer a falafel shop. It also changed its name to ‘Jerusalem Bagels’, although it is still displaying the old sign.

    To give a proper seal would require the store to have a supply of stickers or something, which could easily be mis-appriated, unless a mashgiach is present all the time. Unless maybe the stickers had the name of both the store and the heschsher, so the storekeepers would guard them anyway.

    There is a special tape to seal boxes. This tape when tampered with leaves behind in clear print “this box has been tampered with” it should serve as a siman.

    To AMM:-
    Are you saying that they actually use this special tape. Then why cannot they take responsibility? If they do not, then why not?

    Normal (i.e. standard Rabbanut) hashgachot do things (hopefully) in a correct way but might not necessarily be the most stringent.

    Would expect Badatz Eida Chareidit, being who they are, not to make short cuts in halacha yet they let their stores (and factories) do deliveries and have the customers receive products without a hechsher. (As Yakov stated above and also see my remarks last week at:

    I am suggesting using it.

    In that case, I am sure it will solve for them the issue of home deliveries. They would need to rewrite their disclaimer to something like:-
    “The hechsher only applies to deliveries if the seal is intact”.

    It still does not solve the issue of deliveries to factory shops where products are weighed on the premises and repacked for the customer.
