Jerusalem Dining

Is Everything Kosher?
Is everything in Israel Kosher? Do you know where I can find a good Kosher Restaurant?

Around the time I had my Bar Mitzvah, I was staying on a kibbutz. I assumed everything there was kosher, but unfortunately, I was mistaken.  It’s always prudent, in restaurants, cafeterias and cafes, to check first if the Kosher certification is authentic and valid.

A sign is generally posted at or near the entrance, and will inform you if the certification is that of the
Rabanut, which is issued by the government, or that of a private organization. Kosher
Mehadrin, sometimes called Glatt Kosher, provides a higher grade of Kashrut than the standard.

If you wish to purchase food products in mini-markets or supermarkets, it is also advisable to check Kosher Supervision marks.
