Hashgacha Pratit: Private Supervision for the Advancement of Judaism in Israel
The issue of kashrut has become a charged one in Israeli society, leading to a sense of distrust and divisiveness between the religious establishment and the community. Many feel turned off by the undertone of corruption and unfair misuse of power in the system. Since 2013 Hashgacha Pratit has been working to correct this situation by offering an alternative kashrut system. This system is one of trust rather than coercion and is impelled by collaboration rather than obstruction. In a broader sense, we see our work as directly impacting the development of civil society in Israel by encouraging and empowering society to enact change and promoting social cohesion and a sense of shared community.
