Jerusalem rabbinate emulating Rabbi Meir Rabi?

Guest post by Kosherman:

Well, it seems that Rabbi Meir Rabi had the right idea when introducing cameras for 24/7 monitoring of some establishments that are under his supervision.

No less than the Rabbinate of the Jerusalem Religious Council will now also be installing these devices in eateries that they certify.

Here is the article published on the Jerusalem Kosher News website confirming this development. It adds that the "superfrum" (my description) Badatz Edah Hacharedis also has cameras in certain cases.



  1. No doubt we'll soon have both KAs demouncing the Israeli Rabbanut Kashrut

  2. I spoke to Rabbi Rabi about this some time ago. He then told me that this method of supervision has the approval of many of the prominent poskim in Israel including Rav Shmuel Wosner.

    Thus I am not surprised to hear that the Rabanut too accepts this type of system

    And I'll bet anyone that it won't be long before the Gutnick rabbi brothers will also realise that installing these cameras could be a vast improvement on some of the supervisors that they currently employ, eg, fresh BTs, part-time uni students, retirees etc
