Meet The New Vaad Rabbonim For Kashrus And Character Of The Workplace

kanThere are many Vaadei Rabbonim in Israel, including one addressing music, telephones, Shabbos, tznius and more. It appears that a new Vaad Rabbonim joins the group, a vaad concerning itself with the kashrus and character of the workplace.

The rabbonim shlita serving on this new committee met in the home of HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita and the rabbonim will reportedly be available to respond to telephone inquiries pertaining to the kashrus and character of a work place and the need to amend the existing situation. Needless to say the rabbonim received a warm bracha from Rav Kanievsky for at times, activities are at the expense of earning a living.
