Update on Heimeshe Essen (19 Keren Kayamet L’Yisrael Street, Jerusalem)

12 Elul 5772

Heimeshe Essen is once again under the supervision of the Jerusalem Rabbinate Mehadrin. On 19 Tammuz JKN reported it lost its hashgacha.

On 22 Tammuz I reported that the rabbinate reinstated the non-mehadrin supervision.

Today I confirmed that the restaurant is once again Jerusalem Rabbinate mehadrin.


I have not received any updates regarding the Badatz Agudas Yisrael hechsher.

    Why was there Jerusalem Rabbinate mehadrin re-instated considering their recent kashrut violations?

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

    Anybody caught with serious kashrus fraud has lost their “chezkas kashrus” (presumption of honesty and reliability). How can you ever trust the restaurant?

    Which makes me wonder why the rabbanut has reinstated their hasghgacha. Where is the deterrent against further abuse of the kashrus system???

    In my book, if you do kashrus fraud, you’re TOAST. Forget about EVER getting a kashrus certificate. All the more so for getting a “Mehadrin” rating!!!
