Tzohar Kashrut Supervision Expands Beyond Israeli Borders

Rabbi David Stav, co-founder and the chairman of the Tzohar Rabbinical Organization

The Tzohar Rabbinical Organization, which launched its Food Supervision Service in February of 2017, announced that it has now certified its first establishment outside of Israel- a hotel frequented by Israeli tourists in the Sinai peninsula.

Beginning with the upcoming Chanukah, a Tzohar-trained and certified kashrus supervisor will be on site in the La Playa Beach Resort Taba Hotel and providing full kosher supervision. Tzohar staff members have already been at the site preparing the kitchens and facilities for the influx of visitors over the holiday.

“Over the past year, we have succeeded in bringing about a real revolution in kashrus supervision here in Israel with over 100 eateries that were previously not certified and are now accessible to the kosher consumer. We hope and plan to expand this option to other hotels and restaurants outside of the country that are looking to serve the kosher market and respond to the demand of travelers and customers who embrace kashrus.”

Tzohar reported that they have already received numerous requests for supervision at hotels frequented by kosher observers in Europe and Africa and are currently building an infrastructure to be able to respond to that interest. “We take considerable pride that our service, defined by transparency and attention to detail and strict observance of halacha, will now be available to people even beyond Israel’s borders,” the organization said.

  1. TSOHAR IS THE ISRAELI VERSION OF OPEN ORTHODOX AND IS JUST AS TRAIF. THEY APPOINT FEMALE RABBIS, DEFY THE AUTHORITY OF THE RABBANUT, AND IN THE CASE OF RISKIN, ADMIRE OISO ISH!

    I’m struggling to find a single element of truth in your statement. I’d have to conclude that your education did not extend to knowing much about those who aren’t part of your immediate faction.

  3. naftali, you are talking about an organization whose leader was backed by RAL ztl for chief rabbi; I suggest you go to his kever, fast a few days and ask for mechillah. otherwise, don’t bother with next year’s yom hadin; yours has already been sealed.

  4. Another place we can’t eat. Israel’s version of open orthodoxy basically. Who do they want to attract to these hotels exactly? Obviously not a frum crowd.

  5. that tzohar rabbi looks so innocent, yet their only goal is to be machshil yidden into aveiros chamuros. i`m sure moses mendelsohn looked like that. or maybe even more frum.
