Can You Always Trust A Store Sign for Your Kashrus?


5This store sign, which is clearly in Arabic, is on a store in the PA (Palestinian Authority) village of Chawarah, south of Shechem. If one looks at the left side of the sign, one sees the store advertises being under the hashgacha of Badatz Chug Chassam Sofer Petach Tikvah, parve.

YWN-ISRAEL did not visit to determine if the store has a valid teudat kashrus, but clearly, shoppers should realize a store sign without a valid teudat kashrus backing it is meaningless.
