A new hashgacha is making its way onto Israel’s kashrus scene, Badatz Rabbanei Kehillos HaChareidim. The kashrus is based in Kiryat Gat, headed by the city’s chief rabbi, Rabbi Moshe Havlin Shlita. Also on the beis din are Rabbi Betzalel Wachselstein Shlita (Rav Kiryat HaChareidis & Kehilas Chassidei Gur), Rabbi Gedalya Reizal Shlita (Rav Kehilas Chassidei Slonim).
The kashrus intends to provide a hechsher for those food businesses operating in the Kehila HaChareidis that meet its standard in the hope of expanding the availability of items for the mehadrin shopper.
