Hutzot Ha’yotzer Festival (International Arts & Crafts Fair)

14 Menachem Av 5772
August 2, 2012

The following is taken from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel Update 025/2012.

This alert refers to the annual Jerusalem fair, August 6-18, 2012 that offers a wide array of food.

Visitors to such fairs often make the erroneous assumption that all vendors have kosher hashgacha when this is simply not the case. in this case, one should demand to see a valid current Jerusalem Rabbinate kashrus certificate before buying food. One should never accept a photocopy that points to a kitchen or catering company located elsewhere for this is not a hechsher for the booth operating at the fair.

To see the entire Chief Rabbinate update in the original Hebrew, one may visit the Kosharot website.
