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.
