Maranan V’Rabanan Rav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv Shlita, Rav Aaron Leib Shteinman Shlita and Rav Shmuel Halevy Wosner Shlita are calling to link kashrus and tznius issues as the summer approaches. The Gedolei Yisrael feel that regarding mehadrin kashrus certification for hotels, the issues of kashrus and tznius mustn’t be addressed separately.
The gedolim point out that with summer approaching, accompanied by increased tznius problems, mehadrin kashrus for hotels and resorts serving the chareidi community must include tznius standards to prevent stumbling blocks for frum visitors.
The rabbonim explain this call is a continuation of the letter released on the matter last Iyar, calling on kashrus agencies to work with the Vaad Tznius to ensure the hotels are certified in both areas to prevent chareidim from finding their lifestyle compromised by immodesty in a resort.
