Jerusalem Kosher News began as a modest effort to educate a small number of readers as to the complexities of the kosher scene in Eretz Yisrael. It has since developed into a source of reliable information for many residents and visitors alike, with an emphasis on kashrut in the capital.
You are invited to visit the website to learn and probe, accessing the many posts that provide a clear look at hotels, restaurants and kashrut agencies, showing that many of the old clichés are unfortunately untrue.
Not everything in Israel or Jerusalem is kosher, reliable, or what it appears to be. There are many “non-authorized” kashrut agencies as per the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, agencies that have inundated Jerusalem and other cities, resulting in many residents and tourists eating in restaurants that they would not enter if only they knew the “mehadrin” certificates are bogus.
